Psychological Support

The physical and emotional demands of caring for someone with a disability, or recovering from an accident or disease, with care needs can be high. As a carer, looking after your own emotional needs is essential so you can keep doing your care role, stay healthy, and enjoy life as much as possible. 

Caring can be rewarding, but it can also be stressful and demanding. Many carers experience complicated feelings related to their role as a carer. Emotions like anger, frustration, guilt, exhaustion and annoyance are normal.

Spending most of your spare time looking after someone else makes it easy to become isolated or lonely.

Mental Health

You can have counselling by yourself or include a partner or other family members.

Counselling can help you:

  • work out your own needs
  • help make sure you are looking after your physical health and wellbeing
  • build resilience and learn ways to manage your feelings
  • manage feelings of loss and other overwhelming or confusing feelings
  • deal with stress and conflict and other factors that make caring more difficult
  • provide practical advice for problem-solving.

Our counsellor’s role is to help you gain a greater understanding and awareness of yourself and the problems you have to face. A counsellor will not tell you what to do but will encourage you to develop confidence in your ability to help yourself.
