We offer a counselling service to patients, their families and friends. Our counsellors aim to provide support for those experiencing difficult emotions associated with having a serious progressive illness and to people caring for them. We provide a safe, confidential place to talk and your concerns will be heard in a non-judgemental, caring and respectful way.
St Richard’s counsellors follow relevant governing body guidelines. As part of our team we have volunteer counsellors and student counsellors working towards qualification. We receive on-going training and supervision.
We receive referrals from GPs and St Richard’s Nurse Specialists who will be able to give you further information and advice. You can also self-refer.
There is no charge for receiving counselling at St Richard’s, if you would like to speak to a member of our team please ring Gateway on 01905 763963.
