Carers come in all shapes and sizesThis is what a Carer might look like. Might be a gamer, a child, a pensioner, an accountant, a builder, a nurse, a Dad, a teacher, a policeman, an artist, a Mum…

It’s National Carers’ Week and I’ll be helping to raise awareness that Carers come in all shapes and sizes. There are 6.5 Million Carers in the UK, as diverse a community as you can imagine.

I’m a parent carer myself, for my son who has a complex medical history. You wouldn’t know which of my children had medical difficulties if I didn’t mention it. He doesn’t look like he has additional needs and I am not pushing a wheelchair. I’m hidden in plain sight. And it took me years to realise that when people were talking about Carers, that I was one of them!

If you’ve been putting off getting some emotional support for yourself as a Carer (maybe because you don’t like the word?) is it time to take some action?

I'd love to hear from you...

If you're ready for some compassionate Counselling (on Zoom or face to face) or have a question about how I can help you
