We Hear You – Cancer Counselling

We Hear You works across Bath and North East Somerset, Somerset and Wiltshire providing emotional support to patients, families, friends and carers who have been touched by cancer or any other life threatening condition.

At We Hear you we understand that cancer and life threatening conditions can be overwhelming. People who use our service often report feeling numb, isolated and terrified and struggling to cope. We provide a safe space where people can say the unsayable and ask the unanswerable.

When you ask WHY… we hear you.

If you are affected or have been bereaved by cancer or another life threatening condition and would like to know more about our counselling, please see our 'Get Support' pages.
