Finding out that you or someone you are close to has a life-limiting illness can have a huge impact on your emotional wellbeing. Talking to someone can help.
Our Emotional and Psychological Support team is dedicated to supporting the emotional wellbeing of our patients, those close to them and the bereaved. They work closely alongside our clinical teams and see their care as integral to the support St Peter's offers.
If you'd like their help, you will have an initial appointment where you can experience what it's like to talk about how you feel to someone who isn't a friend or family member. You will have a chance to discuss the kind of support that's right for you and how to take things forward. If you find your initial appointment helpful and want to continue, we will pair you with a member of the team who is best placed to support you and you will be offered up to eight individual sessions of 50 minutes each.
