Our clinics can provide emotional support from the moment you are diagnosed with a life limiting or life changing condition. This may include coping and adjusting to life with a diagnosis, support during treatments and with advancing disease.
Our team of nurses will spend time listening to your concerns and then offer appropriate support and advice. The nurse can liaise with other services on your behalf, or refer you to other appropriate services as required to ensure you are receiving the best possible care. These other services may include a social worker, benefits advisor, Family Support and Counselling team, and Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy team.
We have a team of skilled complementary therapists who are currently offering non touch therapies such as reiki. They are also investing their skills more in the therapeutic use of the voice to provide guided relaxation techniques, anxiety management, breath work to help calm the body and mind, self-soothing techniques and coping skills advice. Our therapists will be updating our complementary therapy services following government guidelines, when we can safely offer an increased service.
