Counselling involves talking in confidence to someone who is able to help you explore
your individual situation.
HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP ME?
Counselling can help you understand your feelings and help you make sense of what is going on in your life. It can also give the chance to talk privately with someone who is independent and won’t judge you.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO WAIT FOR COUNSELLING TO BEGIN?
We aim to assess your counselling referral within two weeks of you first being in touch with us.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Carers Federation Counselling Service is FREE to carers in Nottingham. A charge is made for people without unpaid caring responsibilities
HOW MANY SESSIONS CAN I HAVE?
An assessment and review determines the number of sessions provided. The average is 18 sessions, however this number varies from person to person, and can be adapted to meet individual needs.

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.
