Emotional Support Service

If you are an adult patient under the care of Hospice and are affected by a life-limiting or end of life diagnosis, it is normal to experience feelings of loss or sadness as the illness progresses.

Sometimes you may cope well and at other times you may feel overwhelmed. Life limiting illness can have a huge emotional impact and the changes that occur along the way can make it difficult to manage feelings. Patients and their families face many challenges and uncertainties and whilst many cope with these challenges, some may benefit from further support

How the service works

Our free and confidential service is made up of a small team of qualified counsellors and volunteers.

This support can be an opportunity to talk in confidence about the impact of living with, or caring for, or supporting someone living with a life-limiting illness or end of life diagnosis. The support is focused on you.

Support offered

Emotional support is available for patients of Hospice, their families, carers, and friends. All support is person-centred and non-directive and can provide an opportunity to talk in confidence about the consequences of the life-limiting illness, with someone who will be able to listen to your experience. Many people find it helps to talk with someone who is not part of their family or close circle of friends.

We can also support adults by providing information and resources to help them talk with children and young people about someone close to them who is an adult patient of hospice. We work closely with parents and carers to support children. As parents and carers, you may be best placed in helping children through their emotions.

One to one individual counselling
We can support children and young people to develop the skills to cope with the sometimes overwhelming feelings of loss. We support children and young people to understand that emotions are normal and to have the confidence to ask for help when they are struggling. The session allows space to process thoughts and feelings through age-appropriate activities, arts, and crafts at their level of understanding. These confidential sessions are pre-booked, at a mutually convenient time, in our private counselling rooms and last no longer than an hour.
