Parents Counselling

For some people, the thought of having a disabled child is nothing more than ‘well it’s just one of those things’ But for a lot of people, it is the beginning of a life of never ending trauma, anxiety, depression, isolation, guilt, anger, frustration, sleep deprivation/sleep issues, unhealthy eating habits, denial, dread, grief, overwhelming hopelessness, helplessness and ongoing stress. These parents have to learn how to cope in a world of changing attitudes toward both them and the child as well as society’s attitude to disability. In addition, they have to learn to understand the layers of bureaucracy, form filling and get their heads around what the impact of the lack of resources within the NHS means for them and what they have to do in order to overcome this.
