Meet Our Counsellors
The NCUK CaPS team offer reliable and confidential relationships for you to talk through whatever is troubling you.
They can 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.
