Psychological help for my daughter.

IankIank Member Posts: 1 Listener
I have a 29yr old daughter who has a learning disability and is on the autistic spectrum. Approximately 5 years ago she said she hurt a hand whilst dancing around in her bedroom. We have since this time had issues with her arm/hand. We went through various medical examinations and saw various experts in the NHS, the conclusion being there was nothing physically wrong with her hand.
We are now at the stage where she does not use her left arm. She constantly wears a support bandage and her arm looks disfigured. We have asked constantly for help for someone with mental health skills to speak to her.The only thing we were offered was family therapy which was not appropriate. No one seems to believe it will make a difference speaking to her. Can you tell me if there is someone who can speak with her. We are willing to pay a professional if you could point us in the right direction. Undoubtedly the pandemic has had an effect on her.
