Carers Counselling Service
Caring is often satisfying and rewarding, but can sometimes make you feel tired, over-loaded, stressed or depressed. Caring can bring up complex and difficult feelings, for which family and friends may not always be the best people to talk to. Speaking to a counsellor will give you the opportunity to share your feelings with someone who will listen and not judge. All the counsellors at the Carers Centre are trained to listen, help you find ways to deal with your emotions and cope with your caring situation more confidently.
The CHCC Counselling Service currently offers appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10am to 8pm. The counselling takes place on Zoom (video meeting) or over the telephone.
We offer an initial 12 sessions with the option to extend beyond this often on offer. Prices are based on a sliding scale starting as low as £5 per session and go towards covering running costs of the service.
Counselling is available to any unpaid carers who live in or care for someone living in the City of London or the Borough of Hackney. We adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) guidelines and are bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
