Counselling Counselling offers an opportunity for you to reflect on what’s going on in your life in a one to one conversation with a qualified counsellor. Each session will provide a safe and confidential place for you to think out loud and put feelings into words. Counselling can offer an opportunity to slow down, take stock of emotions and look for alternative perspectives on your worries, stresses and fears. Kindred runs a counselling service providing specialist support to parents and carers of children with complex needs. Counselling sessions last an hour and you usually attend weekly or fortnightly. There is no charge to you for the Kindred counselling sessions.
