However willingly a person takes on a caring role they usually find themselves having to give up things they enjoy. Carers can easily become socially isolated, plus the relationship with the cared-for person can alter in unexpected ways — ways which can be difficult to handle.
Opportunities to talk about feelings of anxiety and frustration don’t often happen. Our Counselling Service offers the chance to talk things over with a trained counsellor who understands the difficulties and problems with which carers often have to live. Counselling is not about giving advice, nor is it a magic wand that waves away troubles — if only it were that easy! It is about providing a safe, confidential space and an understanding ear to help explore ways of working through the difficult feelings that can arise in a carers’ life.

Appointments Mondays to Fridays, 9am to 5pm, plus
one early evening appointment on a Wednesday.
One to one counselling, for up to 12 sessions.
