How can counselling help me?
Parents and Carers have little time to think of themselves whilst caring for special
needs children or a disabled, sick and dependant relative.
Counselling can give you
an opportunity to be really listened to and deeply understood. So often the cared
for person is being well looked after by professionals, but you may feel you need
someone to talk to.
- Are you a Parent or Carer of a child who is ill or has special needs?
- Are you struggling with being a Parent and a Spouse?
- Are you the husband, wife or carer of a relative or loved one?
- Maybe you are going through a stressful and emotional time with your relative and
feeling there is nobody to listen to you?
Counselling can be a particular source of help around the time of a child’s diagnosis,
or a time of transition or change as your child gets older. Or when you feel overwhelmed
and it feels hard to tell friends or relatives. Or perhaps when you need space to
acknowledge you are an individual and a parent as well as a carer.
listened to can help relieve stress and move you towards feeling more able to think
about your priorities, decisions and choices, thus improving your own development,
needs and future goals, leading to action planning if required.
