Information Workshop for Teenagers 12+ living with Sickle Cell Disorder (SCD). This workshop will be led by Dr Hatel Bhatt, Clinical Specialist- Counselling Psychologist. Dr Bhatt is part of the transition team at St Thomas Hospital so is well experienced in supporting children though the transition process.
Please note this is not a counselling session, this workshop will be a space for young people to come together to meet others living with SCD and learn about the transition phase between paediatrics and adult services. For example, why transition? What happens during transition and how children are supported through this pivotal process. It will also be a space to discuss ways to manage missing school and catching up with school work, attending hospital appointments and managing medication independently as they get older.
