The service offers support to patients under the care of the Hospice and to their carers and family members. The team will see people individually or in any type of family group and will work with any age group including young children.
We can support adults who have a responsibility for children and young people, helping with what to say to them and how to support them through the period of someone being ill and on in to the bereavement period.
Once referred, the person will have an assessment appointment, following which they will be allocated to a therapist, a student therapist on placement or a volunteer; whoever the team feel is most appropriate. We can offer a range of creative arts therapies including music therapy, mindfulness and body based practices as well as the traditional listening therapies. Sessions can be delivered at the Hospice, over the telephone or through a video link.
