If you are an unpaid carer you might not be able to take regular time for yourself. Caring through the pandemic has been mentally tough for many. You may have problems and feelings that a professional counsellor can help you with, giving you the space to reframe feelings and work on new ways to cope.

Carer Support Wiltshire are currently able to offer carers in Wiltshire eight sessions of professional counselling on phone, or video, completely free.

Spaces are limited and you may be added to a waiting list. Visit the Carer Support Wiltshire website to find out more.

This is some of the feedback received from carers who have had the counselling –

“It was invaluable to be able to talk to someone about the struggles of being a parent carer. Thank you.”

“The counsellor was very experienced and easy to talk to. My husband joined the session and we both connected immediately with the counsellor. The booking process was proactive and quick. Excellent support.”

“My counsellor was very kind and supportive. I felt heard and I felt she cared.”
