Easing your worries

Whether you’re a patient of Phyllis Tuckwell or a carer or relative, talking to a counsellor or clinical psychologist could help make sense of any worries you may have. We have counsellors, clinical psychologists, volunteer counsellors, student counsellors and patient and family support volunteers, all of whom are here to help you and your family with any counselling support you may need.

If possible we will arrange to meet you to talk through what sort of counselling support would be most helpful to you. If you are unable to come to Headway House or the Beacon Centre we will arrange to come and see you at home. For more information on what our counselling sessions entail, please read our Counselling leaflet or contact our Patient & Family Support team on 01252 729430 or email [email protected]

We offer:

  • One to one counselling,
  • Group support,
  • Children and Family support,
  • Advice and guidance on pre & post bereavement for professionals and families/carers.
