It’s completely understandable that you and your loved ones will experience a range of emotions after being told you have a terminal illness. Whether you’re feeling bereft, angry, confused, or depressed, you are not alone in your feelings.
Our counsellors are here for you and your family and carers to enable you to express your worries, fears and anxieties in a warm and loving environment. We offer our counselling as regular one-to-one support, or in couples, families and in groups.
We also offer a range of bereavement support whether it’s been several months or even up to two years after your loss.
Almost three quarters (72%) of carers in the UK said they had suffered mental ill health as a result of caring, while well over half (61%) said their physical health had worsened.
Jake is thankful for the counselling support he received from the Hospice when his mum was ill. To anyone who isn’t sure or doesn’t think it will help them he says:
“Don’t brush it off. Be open-minded, give it a go and see what happens. I wouldn’t be where I am today without it and the support of my family. The Hospice staff are very focused on everybody, they’re so kind and caring.”
