Learning that you have a life-limiting condition can feel overwhelming and leave you and those who are important to you, struggling to cope.
You can explore your concerns and ways of coping with the help of our counselling service. We have qualified and experienced counsellors who are here to offer confidential, emotional and psychological support to your, and your family members, friends and carers.
Your counselling sessions provide a regular time and space for you to talk about the issues that you are facing, and to explore difficult feelings in a confidential, non-judgemental safe environment.
Counselling is not about offering advice, but you might find that you gain insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and to consider if these are helping or hindering your ability to cope. Work with your counsellor to look at your concerns, work towards resolving difficulties, and be supported in making sense of how you feel.
Upon learning that you have a life limiting condition, it is perfectly normal to experience a mixture of emotions. You may feel angry, upset and confused, or you might feel nothing at all.
Having someone outside of your immediate circle to listen can help you to make sense of your situation. Whether you’re coming to terms with your own change of circumstances, or are a family member, friend or carer in need of support, our team can help.
Different types of counselling
You can have one to one sessions with a counsellor, cognitive behavioural therapist or art therapist, and we also offer sessions for couples and children. Counselling usually takes place weekly or once every fortnight, here in our confidential counselling rooms.
