Every patient within the Living Well Service has the opportunity to access our counselling and psychotherapy service. Patients can arrange to use this service by talking with their key worker. Our patients usually work with their counsellor or psychotherapist for an hour a week over a period of time. This is a chance for our patients to talk openly about their feelings, thoughts, beliefs, plans and ways of coping. We help our patients to adjust to their situation, discover what they need and decide how to make changes that enable them to feel better about themselves. Sometimes patients can feel the benefit after only a few sessions and sometimes they want or need to use the service for a longer time.
