Carers Wellbeing Academy logoThe Carers Centre Tower Hamlets understands the struggles that carers face, caring can be rewarding but carers can often experience a lot of guilt and isolation. That is why we provide counselling for carers, to give carers the space to share and explore their thoughts and feelings.

What is Counselling?

Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk to a trained professional about your issues and concerns. Your therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others.

A counsellor will not give you their opinions or advice or prescribe medication. They will help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.

Robin Grey – Carer Counsellor has extensive experience specialising in providing counselling to unpaid carers. Each carer will be offered 4 sessions, if further support is needed we can support you to access longer term talking therapies.

Counselling can be provided over the phone, on Zoom or face to face at the Carers Centre, just let us know what works best for you.
