Please note that I am a Qualified Counsellor, but I am not medically trained. In all cases, refer to your clinicians regarding medical concerns.
My role is to support you with the emotional side of navigating the experience of having a Transplant and life after Transplant. I work with Transplant recipients as well as family members who have been affected by a loved one’s Transplant and illness.
I work confidentially and separately from your medical team. Details of any limits to confidentiality will be discussed in our Introductory Session.
It’s important to understand that I do not offer a ‘blue light’ emergency service, and am only contactable within limited office hours. Session times are booked and planned in advance. Therefore, if you are at a stage in your life where you think you need more urgent and frequent help, you might require a different type of support right now. If you are experiencing severe depressive symptoms and/or suicidal thoughts, please discuss this with your doctor immediately. The kind of Counselling I offer is not suitable for supporting anyone in crisis or with severe Postnatal Depression or any psychotic illness.
