Respiratory Psychological Services

Our respiratory team at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) believes in the importance of addressing your emotional and psychological wellbeing that may be impacted by your breathing condition. You can seek support from different members of your respiratory team to support you with this and signpost you to further support if needed, including our Respiratory Psychology Service.

What the service is?

Please note we are currently not accepting referrals as we are a pilot service until March 2022. When we have further information this will be updated here.

CHFT Respiratory Psychological Services is for adults who have a breathing condition and experience emotional difficulties because of this. This service is for people who are being treated in CHFT. We offer assessment and psychological therapy to individuals on an outpatient basis. Due to our limited service we cannot routinely see partners and carers of patients or offer an inpatient service. 

This service works with people struggling to cope with their breathing condition, or issues arising because of their breathing condition. We see people who are experiencing psychological distress which does not respond to general support or where the health professionals involved feel it is necessary to provide a specialist level of support.
