Counselling Support for Children and Young People
A lot of people feel anxious at the idea of talking to children and young people about terminal illness. Fears of getting it wrong are common, even when you have a very good and open relationship with the children.
If this is the case, we would like to help you. In our experience, meeting for a one-off session is often enough to reassure adults that this is something they can find a way to do. You can arrange a meeting with a counsellor to discuss this. If a child wants to see a counsellor, schools often have a counselling service that can offer good support within the school. However, if this isn’t the case or you prefer to bring a child to be seen by a counsellor here at Hospice in the Weald, we can make arrangements for them to come after school. We can provide counselling support for children from the age of 7 upwards.
If you would like to talk to a counsellor or make an appointment, please contact Urtzi Cristobal on 01892 820554 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support for schools
We have been helping local schools for many years, supporting staff with specific problems when a pupil has a relative with a terminal illness. If you would like further information please contact Urtzi Cristobal on 01892 820554 or email email@example.com.
