The South Bucks Community Hospice’s Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Services will help you, your family and carers throughout your time with us.
We also hold support groups and offer spiritual care through our chaplaincy team.
Counselling & Psychotherapy
A life-limiting or life-threatening illness is emotionally and mentally challenging.
Our team of psychotherapists and counsellors will help you come to terms with your illness, helping you to understand your emotions. We do not stop caring for you during or after remission or bereavement, but work with you to support you, your family and carers as you process and come to terms with what you have experienced. We help you to rebuild your life.

- Family therapy
- Couple therapy
Often when a person is diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening illness, they will seek solace in a faith that they follow or have lost. Spiritual beliefs and faith can be a source of strength.
Living with a serious illness can cause you to question your beliefs. We provide support for our patients, their families and carers in search of meaning and hope. The most common question is ‘why?’. Our multi-faith chaplaincy programme will provide a dependable, non-judgemental, listening ear to help you come to terms with your challenges. We will help you come to a resolution from a perspective different to our psychotherapeutic and counselling service.
Support groups are a helpful way to connect with people facing the same diagnosis or similar challenges to yourself.
Brainwaves is The South Bucks Community Hospice’s Brain Tumour Support Group. The group meets monthly and is facilitated by a counsellor and nurse providing information and support to patients who live with a malignant brain tumour. This group warmly welcomes family members and carers.
Uplifted is The South Bucks Community Hospice’s Breast Cancer Support Group. The group meets monthly, is facilitated by a nurse and focuses on the emotional wellbeing of women experiencing the impact of a breast cancer diagnosis. This group offers practical and emotional support to women of all ages at any stage of their diagnosis.
Bereavement Support Group
Our Bereavement Support Group meets monthly to support family members and carers in coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
