For patients and families Care for patients Psychological care We know that many people experience distress when facing a life limiting illness or coping with end stage chronic progressive disease. You might feel some anxiety, depression, or a combination of both. Although this is common and completely normal, it can be hard to come to terms with. Our team of Katharine House Clinical Nurse Specialists can work with you to identify the psychological challenges you may be experiencing, and can help support you through them. Whilst we are not counsellors, we are able to draw upon training and experience to support you talking through these issues. However, if you think you need more support we will always discuss your situation with you, and we can refer you or your family member on to more specialist services such as trained counsellors, therapists or psychiatrists.
