Psychological Support

A diagnosis of a life-limiting or life-threatening illness can be very distressing for patients, family, friends and carers.

The emotional and practical challenges ahead can be daunting and overwhelming. People often describe finding it difficult to express their emotions and to talk to others about the challenges they face. Although these feelings and anxieties are perfectly normal, there is no need for you to cope alone.

Our team includes practitioners from counselling, psychotherapy and clinical psychology. We offer Hospice patients and relatives/carers a chance to discuss their feelings and experiences in a therapeutic environment and we can provide more specialist psychological interventions where appropriate.

You can be referred to the Psychological Support Team by any member of the Hospice team. Appointments usually take place at the Hospice or by phone or video call. Home visits can be arranged where there is a particular requirement.
