It can be very difficult for people – and those around them – to come to terms with their illness; for many people, counselling provides the answer.

A terminal or progressive life-limiting illness is something for which no one is prepared - and which affects not only the person, but also those around him or her. 

How counselling helps

Counselling helps people to cope. It does this by providing a safe and secure place for people to discuss their situation - either on their own, or with their partner or other family members. This can include the children of someone who is terminally ill - as they can be hardest hit by the loss in the long term. 

Counselling helps in many ways

Not only can counselling help people come to terms with their situation, some forms of counselling - for example, hypnotherapy - can also help people to relax or even provide pain relief.

Becoming accustomed to the idea of counselling

For many people, counselling will be something which they've never previously experienced - and, for some, which carries with it negative preconceptions. Our approach is gentle - we let people move at their own pace, providing a short introductory session to find out what counselling is about and how it can help.
