We are recruiting a bank of qualified Counsellors and Therapists from all areas to work on a sessional basis to provide a course of therapy to families identified as needing support and bereavement care.

Tŷ Hafan offers care and support to life limited and life threatened children and to their families. Children accessing Tŷ Hafan are expected to die in childhood, but often the journey between diagnosis and eventual death is a long one. Tŷ Hafan provides support to families both in the hospice and community settings and from the point of diagnosis into bereavement.
The support offered includes practical and emotional support and is delivered through a range of interventions including respite, play and complementary therapies, psychosocial support and bereavement care for as long as is needed.
To date Tŷ Hafan has not offered any structured counselling, therapy or play therapy support but thanks to a grant are now in a position to offer a pilot project to deliver this and evaluate future need.
Tŷ Hafan are planning to recruit a bank of qualified and appropriately registered Counsellors and Therapists from all areas to work on a sessional basis to provide a course of therapy to families identified as needing support.
The project is a bereavement project but this could include working with families pre bereavement around anticipatory grief issues.

The therapy sessions may be offered at premises identified by the counsellor/ therapist or at the bespoke therapy space at Tŷ Hafan.

Payment will be per session delivered which will include any planning and preparation time needed. Any mileage costs will be reimbursed. There will be an induction and training day included which will be paid and also quarterly skill sharing/ reflection groups for the therapists.

The project is due to start in the autumn 2018 and will run for 12 months.
