The Hamar Centre provides psychological and wellbeing services for individuals who have been diagnosed with a life threatening or an acute and on-going illness such as cancer or renal failure. Receiving a life threatening or an acute on-going illness can be frightening and overwhelming. The Hamar Centre offers 1:1 counselling, where you can talk to one of our experienced counsellors and access our other support services to help you through this difficult time.
Counselling offers you a time and place where you can explore your emotions and experiences in complete confidence. This confidential process can help you to identify problems, express your feelings and explore different ways of coping with the illness and treatment. The counsellor is skilled in listening and in helping you to express yourself in a way that feels right for you. The regular sessions last for 50 minutes and the frequency will be discussed with your counsellor. Counsellors are impartial and may use a variety of approaches depending on your particular needs.
