The counselling service has been operating throughout the pandemic, providing professional psychological support to patients and / or their families over the phone.
Following a full risk assessment, from October 2020 we re-introduced face-to-face counselling appointments, delivered at the hospice, for those who wish to be supported in this way. Telephone appointments are still available.
We accept referrals for patients and / or their families who are under the care of Specialist Palliative Care services (community or hospital) and have a Barnsley GP.
Our bereavement counselling and support service provides support to people experiencing grief after someone dies from a life-limiting progressive illness. The sessions operate in a similar way to our other counselling sessions, but families can self-refer to this service.
We have extended our bereavement counselling and support services to help the families of anyone in Barnsley who has died following a life-limiting progressive illness and is known to the hospice or the specialist palliative care services in Barnsley.
For more information or to discuss a referral, please contact Janice on 01226 244 244
Referrals accepted for both adults and children (5+)
