We also provide a confidential counselling service which gives you the opportunity to talk with a trained professional who is there to listen and support you through difficult times, to help bring about effective changes and enhanced wellbeing.

You can see a counsellor for just one session, or an agreed number of sessions, each session lasting about an hour; you can come by yourself, or couples and families can attend together. In counselling a person is always in control of what they talk about and will never be asked to talk about things they do not want to discuss. It is often about making some changes or moving forward, with the counsellor helping you find new ways to feel stronger for the future. It could also be about paying attention to what has happened in the past.

This service is available for people with dementia and the family or friends supporting or caring for someone with dementia. There is no charge for this service.

If you would like to speak with a counsellor, please email sian@dementia.je or Tel: 01534 723519.
