About the Carers Federation Counselling Service

The service was established in 1996 as part of a developing service to carers, providing emotional support to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and non delusional depression, and for carers to realise their individual potential thus improving the quality of social and interpersonal relationships.  For carers, a major outcome has been defined as prevention of carer role breakdown.

Our counsellors recognise the struggles, joys and responsibilities that the carer can encounter within their caring situation.  The feedback from clients is that the counselling has helped to reaffirm their sense of worth and self identity, thus empowering the client in their given situation.
