Counselling

Counselling

Counselling can help you explore how you’re feeling and make sense of distressing emotions like guilt, anger and grief. It’s a chance to think about yourself and what you really want from life.

Here for you

Here for you

Caring for a loved one can be a challenging, often a thankless task.

Isolation, exhaustion, money worries, depression… the pressures of caring can push you to the limit and affect every part of your life. Many carers put their own needs last, which can put a strain on relationships and leave you feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. 

Our experienced counsellors will help you talk through your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment.

Counselling gives you the time and space to think about your needs and what you want from life. It can also help you develop coping strategies to make your life easier and more enjoyable.
