“The stigma attached to talking therapies is disappearing”- (Source) British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
"People in any situation and at any time in their life could benefit from counselling."
👥 Parents who are referred or self refer to Oscar's Wish Foundation explain how they are able to unpick what has happened and slowly work through each stage with the help of a qualified, competent and understanding counsellor funded by us.
🗣 Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person or a couple to talk about their problems, feelings, experiences and situation in a confidential and dependable environment.
❤️ Some of the feedback that we have received from Mum's, Dad' & couples about the funded counselling that we offer is shared below-
"We are so grateful for the support we received from Oscar's Wish Foundation and Harbour counselling following the loss of our little angel Theo in March (2021). Our counsellor "S" was wonderful in helping us process our Grief and really listened and empathised with us. Such grief is something neither myself or husband had experienced and we were feeling very lost before, so these sessions really helped lighten the heavy weight we were carrying"
"The sessions were supportive and helpful. They provided me with a safe space in which i could explore the myriad of emotions that I experienced without feeling judged or rushed "To get over it"
"I am so grateful to have had the counselling sessions organised for me. They were very important in helping me to understand and accept my experience."
"I don't think that many people know how much losing a baby can affect your relationship and we have tried to be as open as possible with our closest friends. The aftermath of losing a baby can unfold in many ways, affecting relationships, body image, confidence and bring on all sorts of psychological insecurities. It has for me and this is something new that I have had to try and manage and deal with. Thank you for being there for us."
❤️🩹 Please do not feel that you have to face this journey alone.
🙏 Thank you to our counsellors and all who help fundraise for OWF to ensure that we can keep this service **FREE** and funded for our families.
