Counselling for Patients

Having a terminal illness can bring up very difficult emotions:

  • You may feel scared and have many questions about the future
  • You may worry about how your family will react to your illness
  • Sometimes, small things may seem to be too much and you may feel overwhelmed, as though you cannot cope
  • Your body may be changing and you may not feel like yourself any more
  • Everything may feel unreal, and you may not be able to concentrate. Coping with your daily routine may be a struggle
  • You may feel sad and tearful out of the blue
  • You may feel isolated and fearful of upsetting people close to you when talking about your illness
  • Being diagnosed has probably changed your life and you may feel shocked

How counselling can help

For years we have been helping people with a diagnosis of cancer or other terminal illnesses. Having a regular time when you talk to a qualified counsellor often results in finding a greater sense of control and confidence.  The feedback we get from people we see for counselling is consistently that they are very satisfied.
