Southend Stroke Service

The EPUT team provides support to stroke survivors, family members and carers. The Stroke service offers; assessment, consultations, and talking based therapies to assist with rehabilitation after stroke.

Following a stroke it is very common and normal for people to experience a change in their emotions. Common emotions following stroke are; anxiety, depression, grief and disconnection from self and others.  Stroke Psychologists are involved in both the emotional and the neuropsychological (how the brain manages functions, emotions and perception).
