The Counselling team is part of the Ashgate Hospicecare Supportive Care Team and is based in the Harry Fisher Building in the hospice. Our service is available to patients with palliative care needs, their families, friends and carers. We offer a safe space for you to be heard and supported, as you explore your concerns and any issues you wish to resolve.
How can we help?
We begin by undertaking an assessment so we can ensure the service is the most appropriate form of support for you. We will listen to your concerns and agree together how we can offer support.
We will assist you to explore the situation you are dealing with. This can be around illness, bereavement, communicating with family and friends, or any other issues you wish to discuss.
The sessions are held at the hospice in the Harry Fisher Building or within our community hubs. You will be offered an appointment to see the same counsellor each time and you will agree an initial number of sessions.
Appointments are available during the day and some early evenings throughout the week.
