Life with an illness can be full of challenging moments that can put a strain on a family, and it can sometimes be difficult to communicate effectively and sensitively with each other. Beechwood offers support in whatever way suits your needs to help your family work through these moments together.
The Family Team supports family members through a complex and difficult time. Our team of qualified professionals help family units, children and young people work through their current or upcoming circumstances to develop strategies to manage the emotions that life-limiting illness and other trauma in a family often bring.
For children and young people, this is a time filled with difficult questions, feelings and emotions that they might not understand or know how to explain. It’s important that all family members know that they’re not alone. Finding what works for your loved ones is what our highly trained team do.
We offer a range of services as we know that no two families are the same when it comes to the support they need.
What we offer:
Creative and play therapies
These are all designed to fit each family member’s needs, creating a safe space at any age. We aim to open a dialogue between adults and children, and to help your family find new ways to support and communicate with each other.
If you or a family member have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, experienced a bereavement, or been through other significant trauma, please get in touch. You don’t need a medical professional to refer you.
