Caring for someone is a difficult and stressful job to say the least. It can take a toll on many people’s emotional well-being, and people can often forget to look after themselves.
Whether caring for someone else is becoming difficult or you are just feeling low, our counsellors can offer you support to improve your emotional well-being. You may want to explore coping strategies together or just to share your thoughts and feelings about where you’re at.
Impact are currently working with Telford & Wrekin council to help provide counselling for carers. The work you do is vital, so let us help you!
You might ask yourself, “Why do I need counselling? They’re the one with the problem”. However, someone else’s poor mental health or problematic behaviour can have an effect on you, and impacts upon your own emotional well-being.
Advice is given on how to motivate and support the maintenance of change in others.
Coping strategies are explored to reduce the effect that another’s poor psychological health or problematic behaviour has on you. And relaxation exercises, such as Mindfulness, are offered.
