We Hear You – Cancer Counselling

We Hear You provide free emotional support for patients, families, friends and carers who have been affected or bereaved by cancer or any other life threatening condition, across Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset and Wiltshire.

At We Hear you we understand that the emotional impact can be just as hard to manage as physical symptoms, and that the impact extends to everyone connected to the person diagnosed. People who use our service often report feeling numb, isolated and terrified and struggling to cope. We provide a safe space to work through difficult feelings with an experienced, specialist counsellor. 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 and other types of support, please see our 'Get Support' pages

​Please note that due to an unprecedentedly high demand for our services, waiting times are currently around 16 weeks

How You Can Help Us

  • Fundraising
    It's important to us that our service is free to access. It costs more than £5,000 a week and we don't receive any central government funding. Can you help? There are lots of ways to get involved, from hosting an event, sharing your time and skills as a volunteer, taking on a physical or a personal challenge or making a one-off or regular donation.
  • Volunteering
    Donating your time and skills to WHY is of huge benefit to us, and to you too: make new friends, be part of something important and learn some new skills, for as little or as much time as you'd like to offer. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Lottie to find out more.
  • Make a Donation
    The impact of a life threatening diagnosis is far reaching and for many people that includes financial challenges. We can only continue to provide a lifeline to those who need it because of the generous support of people like you. Making a donation, however big or small, is a great way of supporting our vital work.
