Someone to Talk To Emotional Support

We understand that caring for someone is an emotional rollercoaster that includes a range of emotions such as isolation, guilt, loss and sadness.  Taking time to care for yourself can help but when there is so much to manage it is difficult to know what would help.  Talking to someone is a wonderful first step which is the reason why we offer a variety of supports to fit in with your life.


We can offer one to one counselling at venue’s near to you where you can talk to a professional counsellor can give you the opportunity to explore how things are for you with someone who is there to listen to you.  Family and friends may want to help but Counselling is a way for you to work through what is important from your perspective with someone independent.  We offer up to 12 free sessions of counselling at venues across the county.

In partnership with RELATE we can also explore with you if couples counselling could help or family therapy as we recognise that a caring role impacts on all relationships

Telephone Support

We also have telephone support available.  This isn’t telephone counselling but a regular monthly call from a friendly voice with a listening ear.  This gives the chance to keep in touch with us and have someone ask how you are.


Many groups already run across the region with workshops being announced through the year.  Some are condition specific, or therapeutic while others offer social groups.  It gives you the carer options and choices

Relaxation Therapies

We are proud to work with relaxation therapists across West Sussex and offer the first taster session free to carers.  Just ask for a numbered voucher which we will send with a list of our partner therapists and you can choose who to approach
