Chronic Health Support.
If you would like to talk to us about your diagnosis or how you’re experiencing living with chronic health. Use the chat function below.

Emotional Support for people living with chronic health conditions.
Our aim is to preserve and protect good mental health through the provision of a consistent, non judgmental, private and confidential space for people to speak about anything with trained listeners.

Our one-to-one listening service supports people living with chronic health issues through depression, anxiety, stress and the negative thoughts that impact on their mental health and well-being and make their everyday life challenging.

All of our staff and volunteer listeners are highly experienced, knowledgeable, work in a professional manner, have completed nationally recognised training and are therefore qualified to offer one to one emotional support.

This service has had to move online temporarily. Please book an appointment for your session plan.
