Supporting those with long term conditions

SMILE TOGETHER offers support, friendship, help and advice.

Living with a long term condition can be a lonely place.  Even if you can manage  your condition well, there are times when you may need to talk to others with similar experiences.

Many people say they don’t want their condition to be the main topic of conversation, but also need to sometimes say how they are feeling

Many people say that when they first found out about their condition, they were bereaved for the life that they had before.

Our group can offer support and understanding at this point.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need?

It is very difficult to say how many sessions you will need.  It depends on the complexity of your problems and your willingness to work on yourself between sessions.

How can I access sessions?

You can attend your sessions in person, talk by telephone or by video link.  For video link you need to have a smart phone, a tablet, a laptop or a PC.  During the pandemic we can only offer either video link or telephone counselling.  This will continue until restrictions are lowered enough to allow us to reopen our Clitheroe practice.

Is what I say in a session confidential?

Yes, everything that you say in a session is confidential and is kept between your therapist and yourself. However, there are circumstances where information may be shared with or without your consent. If your therapist believes that you are actively suicidal, that means that she believes that you would seriously harm yourself with an intention to end your life and that this is imminent, she would share only relevant information to emergency services in order to keep you safe.

Do I have to attend at the same time/ day every time I come?

No, you can arrange your sessions at a times that both you and your therapist mutually agree to.
