Meet Our Counsellors
The NCUK CaPS team offer reliable and confidential relationships for you to talk through whatever is troubling you.
NCUK have teamed up with Rareminds, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC), who have been providing online counselling and wellbeing services for rare disease charities since 2014.
The Rareminds counsellors offer support during particularly difficult times or in making sense of present difficulties that may stem from past experiences. In so doing, it can often be possible to find ways of understanding and managing difficult feelings or situations differently. They can also help you with strategies and techniques for managing particular issues such as panic attacks, fatigue, anxiety around scans/treatments.
We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) and have been providing online counselling and wellbeing services for rare disease charities since 2014.
Our mission is to provide affordable, timely access to highly specialised counselling and wellbeing resources, and raise awareness about the emotional impact of living with rare conditions.
We support professionals and patient leaders in making mental health integral to rare disease patient care.
If you are thinking of ending your own life, or worried that someone else might be, please let someone know.
This could be a friend or family member, your GP, hospital nurse or doctor, or your local A&E.
