Caring for any child can be stressful, caring for a child with special needs adds even more pressures and sometimes it can feel hard to cope. Together with the Swansea Metropolitan University we offer a free telephone counselling helpline for carers, to give you somewhere to talk things through and get some advice on dealing with the stress.
You can call the counselling helpline on 0800 043 9385.
The service is run by Dr Ann Edworthy, a Chartered Psychologist with practical and research experiene in stress counselling. She has also written a book, Managing Stress for Carers, that contains practical tips for dealing with the stress caring for a child with a neurological condition can put you under. You can request a copy of it by calling 0800 328 1159 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
