When you received your dementia diagnosis you were probably given details of the type of dementia you have and learned how your dementia is likely to progress.

Support and treatment options will most likely have been provided.

All this is a lot to deal with and it is not unusual for people to become upset, anxious or depressed, as they grieve for the life that seems to be disappearing, particularly without well-informed support.

We can help you come to terms with your diagnosis

Being able to talk freely about your feelings can really help. Whether you want to pour your heart out, or get angry, we can listen and support you, and help you live the best life you can. This may help you adjust better to your diagnosis. 

We are used to talking to people with dementia at various stages. Though everyone is unique, we have a good understanding of what you may be facing. We will sit with you and work with whatever you want to bring to the sessions. The aims of counselling include helping you to understand grief and to make the most of the present.
