As a carer there may be times when you feel overwhelmed, speaking to someone can help relieve those feelings and also support you to develop ways to cope in the future. Professional counselling services are available to carers through NEWCIS. Counselling offers a safe and confidential environment to speak openly about things that worry you. The vast majority of carers who access counselling report a positive experience.

“The NEWCIS counselling service is very helpful. It has made a big difference to me in my caring role.”
