The right help, when you need it
It’s normal to struggle with all the emotions that come with having a seriously ill child; every family member will be affected, and everyone will deal with their feelings differently.
Your Family Support Worker will work with you and your hospital care team so that they can easily identify when, and what therapy will best help each of you at any given time, offering you access to our wide range of services.
Counselling and support groups
For the adults and the older children we support, we offer specialist counselling with trained therapists. Talking in a confidential and safe space is a great way to process the impact of a diagnosis and explore all the thoughts and feelings that come with that.
We also offer access to support groups facilitated by a psychologist or one of our Family Support Workers. Being able to share your worries with other parents, can be a powerful way to help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.
For younger children, we have a range of creative-led therapies to offer. Through things like play, music and art, they can explore their worries and discover how to express their feelings in a way that feels intuitive to them.
