Counselling for Carers West Sussex

We understand that the role of a carer can be an emotional journey. Evidenced by the exceptionally high number of counselling referrals we have recently received from carers seeking counselling with carers support. To ensure we can offer support and offer sessions to those who have already subscribed, the decision has been made to pause the service to new referrals. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Looking After Yourself

Caring for yourself can feel down the end of your list of tasks but is very important to ensure that your wellbeing is considered, to enable you to continue in your caring role. To ensure your needs are still met, we have compiled a useful source of alternative services available to you.
