Relate is offering free counselling for carers in Poundbury and Yeovil, thanks to funding from Dorset County Council via Access Dorset and from the Somerset Community Foundation.
Taking on the role of carer for a loved one can change the dynamics of family relationships.
Relate are 'the relationship people' and a few sessions with a Relate counsellor provides space for a carer to explore how their caring role is impacting on their relationships, whether with their partner or the wider family. Carers can come for sessions on their own or with their partner.
Young carers can also benefit from the chance to talk with someone outside of the family about their feelings as they take on the challenge of being a young carer alongside all the other demands of growing up.
Contact Penny or Emily on 01305-262285 to arrange a free appointment.
