Psychological and counselling support is available to individuals and families who are affected by illness or bereavement.

We provide a service for adults and also for children and young people between the ages of 0-18. You don’t need to have a connection with the hospice to receive support but need to live in Ayrshire and Arran and be experiencing difficulty due to life-limiting illness of either you or someone important to you or be bereaved as a result of this.

The team consists of social workers, counsellors, chaplain (spiritual care) and students or trained volunteers. Examples of the help available are:

  • 1:1 support
  • Drop in bereavement groups
  • Family work
  • Group work
  • Information and advice
  • Memory work/therapeutic support
  • Advice and guidance to external agencies and professionals
