The Mulberry Centre offers 6 sessions of individual counselling to patients, their carers, and those bereaved through cancer. Anyone with a life expectancy of less than one year will be offered counselling for that period. There are regular support groups for patients, carers and the bereaved.
All our Counsellors have qualifications that meet the standards laid down by either the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), or the British Psychological Society (BPS). Our counsellors all volunteer their time free of charge.
The Mulberry Centre support groups provide a safe and confidential space where you can have regular contact with others to share experiences. Groups are facilitated by counsellors and have up to 12 members. The aim is to provide somewhere you can talk about issues that you may find difficult to express elsewhere.
The Patient Group: – There is one patient group that meets on a weekly basis..
The Bereavement Group: – There is one bereavement group which runs fortnightly. Find out more here
The Carers’ Group: – There is one carers’ group that meets fortnightly.

Coaching is a process which enables a person to see their challenges, decisions or problems from different perspectives, to achieve greater awareness and to gain new insights. It provides space in which to think things through and time to talk in a non judgemental context, often about priorities, visioning for the future, feelings and values.
Coaching starts from the here and now and looks to the future and how things might be different – it will revisit the past only to inform future action.
