Support for Children and Young People

Talking to children or young people about terminal illness or bereavement can feel very difficult. A lot of people feel anxious at the idea of talking to children about these topics. 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, the Counselling and Support Service 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.

If you would like to talk to a counsellor or make an appointment, please contact the Counselling and Support Service on 01892 820525, or email

Support for Schools and other resources

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 the Counselling and Support Service team on 01892 820525 or email
