St. Rocco’s offers a wide range of emotional support to patients and their families. We can arrange one to one counselling or you can come along to one of  our support groups.


We can provide a free and confidential counselling service to adult patients, their families, friends and carers.

The diagnosis of a life-limiting illness or the death of a family member of friend can be devastating, and may bring about stronger emotions than you have previously experienced or expected. For some people counselling can help with inderstanding the complexity of feelings they experience.

Counselling provides a private and confidential space to explore and make sense of thoughts, feelings and experiences without judgement. If you are eligible you will be offered an initial six sessions lasting for fifty minutes each with one of our trained counsellors.
