Hospice Wairarapa offers:
You can meet with an experienced counsellor to explore your fears and anxieties. This will free you to connect with your inner resources, enabling you to cope with the stressors you are faced with. Hospice Wairarapa will fund up to four sessions for you. Art therapy is also available for those that are wanting to explore their emotions and is beneficial for both children and adults.
By participating in any of the support groups offered, you can meet with others in a similar situation and experience mutual support.
Meeting with an experienced counsellor as a family can enable deeper understanding among family members and the development of effective strategies for coping with the many pressures life threatening illness creates.
Sorrow prepares you for joy.
It violently sweeps everything out of your house,
So that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.
