CounsellingAt Woking & Sam Beare Hospices we often talk about the patient journey and in the counselling team this refers to the different emotions that are experienced during the course of the illness.

Some patients and their families experience intense anger and frustration, others extreme sadness and even depression, and it is very difficult for a family to support each other at these times, no matter how close they are or how well they get on together.

Counselling can offer you the time and space to talk through whatever issues or concerns you may be experiencing. It offers a supportive and confidential relationship that enables you to explore and discover ways of coping and dealing with your situation. At times, having somebody outside of the circle of family and friends, who is trained and experienced, can be helpful and sustaining.
