Counselling & Support

At St Kentigern we offer courses of regular one-to-one counselling sessions.

Counselling and support sessions are available to those accessing day therapies, who are on the inpatient unit, and immediate family members, children of any age group. They are appointment based and normally last 6 to 12 sessions. Due to Covid- 19 our group sessions are currently on hold.

Our counsellor, Merith, is CPCAB qualified and member of the BACP leads the service, supervises and trains the volunteer listening support team and mentors our student counsellors.

Please speak to one of our staff whilst you are visiting the Hospice for more info , or call Merith Shorter, Counsellor and Lead for the Family Support Team on 01745 585221 ex 224 or email on
