We are delighted to introduce you to Rebecca Hemingway who will be offering a free counselling service to parent of Kidney Kids. Who better to tell you all about this than Rebecca herself:
"My name is Rebecca Hemingway and I am the parent of a teenager who has suffered from a chronic renal condition (Nephrotic Syndrome) since he was 3 years old. Although my son is much better now, I understand how extremely stressful and emotionally challenging it can be for any parent of a child with a long term medical condition.
As a trained counsellor and also as a mum of a child with a renal condition I am offering my services to anyone who feels they need someone to talk to. This may take the form of an informal chat or a number of more structured sessions, I am totally flexible and am happy to provide a service which best meets your needs. I am happy to meet for 1:1 sessions at the Kidney Kids office in Larbert or we can chat over the phone if that is easier.
I am a qualified Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Practitioner and as such am a member of a number of Professional organisations so you can be assured that I follow a strict code of ethics and all sessions will be confidential. I have known Kidney Kids for over 10 years now and have participated in a number of family weekends and parent/family groups and I am aware of the difficulties many families face when caring for a sick child, and also how sometimes there is a need to talk to someone about how you are feeling. If you would like to use my services, or simply want to find out more then please email the Kidney Kids Office for a suitable time to be arranged:
Telephone: 01324 555843
I look forward to hearing from you"
