How counselling support Carers

The counselling service enables carers to explore how their caring role impacts upon their broader physical and emotional wellbeing. This is achieved through a safe environment, skilled counsellors, and innovative techniques to enable indivduals to get a better picture of how they are affected and to work through potential changes they can make to support their caring roles.
