David Granirer, Counselor, discusses using humour to manage stress.

What is Local Counselor

Managing a heart condition such as a genetic cardiac disorder, Brugada syndrome, atrial fibrillation or heart failure can be stressful mentally as well as physically. If you have a heart condition or are recovering from cardiovascular surgery, it may be beneficial for you to work with a mental health provider such as a local counselor. A local counselor can help patients with cardiovascular conditions learn coping techniques for stress, anxiety and depression; improve self-esteem; identify goals and access other mental health services such as a local psychologist or psychiatrist. There are different types of local counselors, including marriage counselors, family counselors, eating disorder counselors, and substance abuse counselors. Different counselors have different certifications and skills, so it’s important to find the right one for your situation. If you have a heart condition such as a heart murmur, you will work with a local cardiologist as well as your local family physician. A local cardiologist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating conditions and dysfunctions of the heart and blood vessels with medication, surgery and lifestyle changes. You can start by talking to your local cardiologist or local family physician to determine what type of local counselor might be right for you.
