• Being There - Counselling Support

    Counselling support for 8 sessions online and face to face. Being Heard is a person-centred counselling service offered by Being There. Appropriate referrals from health and social welfare professionals and self-referrals are welcome from anyone with a life limiting illness, their carers or family members. Counselling provides a safe non-judgemental space for you to talk about your problems and to explore any past issues. You may wish to understand why you feel or behave in a certain way and this may link to people or events from your past. You direct what you want to talk about and the counsellor will help you find an understanding of what is happening for you.

    Day: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
    Time: We can offer up to 8 sessions. Some clients find that they do not need all 8 sessions. If you want to bring counselling to an end before you have reached 8 sessions, talk to your counsellor about this. Weekly sessions are recommended, but this is not always possible if you have other regular medical appointments. Exceptionally appointments can be arranged fortnightly. All therapy will either be on-line, by telephone or at one of our private counselling rooms in Manchester or Salford. We can provide door- to-door transport or parking information if you have your own and are traveling to our counselling rooms.
