Our counselling service is a vital resource for people coping with the emotional impact of a life threatening condition. However, we recognise that some of the people in need of support might benefit from a different approach. With this in mind, we've been working with specialist practitioners to develop new services.
Starting soon. WHYwalkandtalk is an opportunity to access one-to-one counselling with a member of our specialist team, while walking (or sitting) in a beautiful natural setting. We hope this new service will enable more people to access our support, in a way that suits them. Call us on 01373 455255 or email email@example.com for more information.
WHYbemindful eight-week mindfulness course (online)
WHYbemindful is a course designed to support people who have, or have had, cancer and their carers. It offers the potential to learn a life enhancing toolbox of practices and a way of being with yourself as you go through this very difficult journey. It offers a safe space, for people, in similar circumstances, to share their own experiences of the mindfulness practices with the companionship of other likeminded people. More about WHYbemindful

Next courses in September 2021 - contact us to book a WHYoutdoors place
WHYoutdoors is a course exploring the benefits of nature connection for wellbeing, designed for those living with and beyond cancer. Participants meet in a beautiful natural setting and undertake a mixture of solo and group activities. The approach helps people coping with the challenges of a life-threatening diagnosis to increase their emotional and physical wellbeing through time spent in nature, guided by specialist group leaders, who are also professional counsellors.There is shelter at both sites so sessions will go ahead in most weather. Participants need to have a reasonable level of mobility as the woodland site is uneven.
To book a place, please call 01373 455255 or email email@example.com.
The Coffee Connection
WHY launched a new drop-in support group for anyone affected or bereaved by cancer or a life-limiting illness in December 2019, in partnership with Dorothy House Hospice Care. We haven't been able to meet in person for some time, but from January 2021 we'll be running the group via Zoom twice a week, on Mondays at 10am and on Thursdays at 1pm. Sadly, we can't buy you a coffee, but we hope you'll join us to chat and connect with us and people who have similar experiences to you.
There are always representatives of Dorothy House and WHY at the group for those who would like to ask about additional support available.
