Description

VOCAL’s counselling service supports unpaid carers who require emotional support linked to their caring role.

VOCAL offers a confidential and non-judgemental space where you can talk to a counsellor who will try to understand things from your point of view.

Talking to someone outside of the situation can be extremely helpful. By listening and understanding, counsellors will work with you to empower and support you in your endeavours to find the best possible outcome.
