Our Services

We support veterans by fully funding the services below.

 

Counselling sessions

You can bring to the session any life issue where you would like to experience change, including feeling blocked, feeling unworthy, emotional distress, the longing to move forward with your life, wanting a greater connection with body knowing.

The focused counsellor will ask you, at the start of the session, what issue or area of life you want to experience change in. You will not need to give details about your life situation. The focused counsellor will not be giving you any advice or analysis about your situation. This is your process.

You can expect to feel deeply understood, with your concerns and your goals in order to make positive steps towards improved well-being.

Support For individuals bereaved by Suicide

When someone you love dies, the heartbreak is immense. But when that death is by suicide, the process of grieving can be complex and hard to understand. Every year, more than 800,000 people die by suicide and up to 25 times that many make a suicide attempt.

Those figures are worldwide – but the problem closer to home is no less alarming and currently having an immense affect on Merseyside families trying to pick up the pieces after a death by suicide.

The Caring Connections bereavement counselling will be free on a weekly basis to anyone bereaved by suicide within the local area. All counselling provided by a trained BACP registered counsellor. You can self refer to service and do not have to come through health services.
