Emotional Support

Help for carers who are struggling emotionally with their caring role, feeling isolated and in need of counselling or peer support.

Emotional Support

Carers tell us they don’t just need practical help. Caring can have a significant impact on emotional as well as physical health and wellbeing.

Recognising this,we provide a range of services and support to help you.

Caring for a family member or friend can be challenging and give rise to many distressing feelings such as guilt, anger, loss, isolation and helplessness.  Relationships can be put under strain due to a change in roles.  Carers often neglect their own needs, leading to them becoming overwhelmed and unable to cope. Also, the caring role is constantly changing with new situations and further loss of expectations to be adjusted to.
