Counselling

Our counselling service provides a safe space for carers to talk and be heard. It gives carers the opportunity to discuss issues such as bereavement, personal problem-solving or emotional trauma in a confidential and safe environment.  

How counselling can help you

Counselling can provide a safe and regular time for you to explore the problems and challenges that may be affecting your life. Our Counsellors are there to listen with patience and kindness, to help you in your caring role and support you to make positive changes in your life.

All of our Counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework.  

Please note: access to our counselling service is based upon an assessment. Sessions are currently being delivered online, or by telephone, where possible.  For more information please talk to us.

Our Counsellors will:

  • Offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place where you can talk about yourself and the parts of your life that are causing difficulties.
      
  • Offer you a number of planned, regular sessions lasting for around 50 minutes each.
      
  • Listen to how you feel and how this is affecting you.
      
  • Guide you to help you understand what decisions you may need to make in your life.
      
  • Refer you to other services, such as our Carer Information and Advice Service, if you need any information, advice or advocacy.
