Clinical psychology services

Psychology services

We recognise that the effects of a life-limiting illness go well beyond physical problems. Our team of clinical psychologists offer specialised support to patients and families to help them work through difficult and painful issues.

The emotional, spiritual and psychological journey that patients and carers follow when faced with a life-limiting illness is unique to every individual. 

During the course of an illness some patients focus on relief from physical symptoms and appear to get by with relatively few difficulties. Others encounter difficulties but with the help of family and friends, find they can cope. 

During what is a period of profound emotional disturbance, a few find themselves ‘stuck’. When this happens it can be a struggle for individuals and families to support each other, no matter how close they are. 

Our team of clinical psychologists can provide specialist skills and experience to help with difficulties such as depression, anxiety and coping with grief. They work closely with colleagues within the hospice who can offer additional support when required. 

Individuals are referred to us from all areas of the hospice, including Day Care, the Social Work Team, The Heath Centre and Bereavement Services
