The Shakespeare Hospice has a small team of qualified and experience Counsellors who are available to meet and offer ongoing confidential psychological and emotional support to patients and carers (individually or in family groups) who are either attending the Hospice or living with a life limiting illness in the community.
Counselling sessions are usually an hour in length and can take place either in the home environment or at the Hospice in Shottery.
All the Counsellors receive professional supervision and are committed to their own ongoing continued professional development; with the Hospice offering a programme of internal training events each year to further support the Counsellors in their role.
Previous users of the Hospice Counselling Service have said:
"The counselling service gave me the opportunity to be heard, to be understood, to say whatever I wanted to or needed to without being judged".
"It was the turning point on the road to recovery and three years on I am still extremely grateful for your help in achieving a more positive view of life".
The Shakespeare Hospice Counselling Service is part of the Family Support Service.
