AFFECTED BY LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS?
The Harbour, a Bristol-based charity, offers free counselling and psychotherapy to people affected by life-threatening illness
Help for individuals
We offer regular weekly therapy sessions for a period of 16 sessions. Clients can use counselling sessions to discuss whatever they wish.
Help for couples
When one member of a couple has a life-threatening illness, it can create all sorts of changes to the relationship. Coming for counselling together can help to make sense of these, and to find ways to cope and to strengthen your relationship.
These groups are for people who are struggling to cope with cancer, or another physical life-threatening illness, and feel very isolated or alone with their feelings.
