Individual Counselling

We offer regular weekly therapy sessions for a period of up to 16 sessions for individuals.

We support:

  • Any adult who is facing death or dying (this is defined as having a diagnosis of a life threatening illness).
  • People who are close to someone who is facing death or dying (this includes family members, friends, and loved ones).
  • People who have been bereaved following illness (from three months since the death and no more than two years afterwards).

We can only offer counselling to people over 18, and you would need to attend at our premises in central Bristol. If we can’t offer counselling ourselves, we will do our best to direct you to other agencies who may be able to help. Clients can use counselling sessions to discuss whatever they wish. Regular themes include:

  • Exploring the impact of death, dying and bereavement.
  • Talking about fears and concerns about loss.
  • Discussing relationships with family and friends.
  • Paying attention to how clients think and feel about their medical treatment.
