Vote for We Hear You And Help Them Support Individuals With Life Threatening Conditions

Posted on 25 Jun 2021 by Amy Jackson
We Hear You LogoWe Hear You (WHY) offers therapeutic support to individuals, children and families affected by cancer and other life-threatening conditions. Whether clients are affected directly or indirectly by these conditions, We Hear You provides free, emotional support from qualified professionals to those in Wiltshire, Somerset and the B&NES areas.

The charity started back in 1994 as Positive Action on Cancer, a telephone helpline providing support to women with breast cancer. However, after research showed a greater need for counselling rather than telephone support, they began to evolve, providing local community support to people affected not just by cancer but other life threatening conditions too. This ultimately led to the charity’s rebranding in 2016 to We Hear You, recognising the broader levels of support they provided.

What Services Do We Hear You Provide?

WHY offers counselling to anyone who has been diagnosed with, bereaved or affected by cancer and other life-threatening conditions. In addition, their services are provided to those who have been bereaved or affected by these conditions at any point in their lifetime, even if it was a long time ago. They offer a broad range of support services which include:

Adults Counselling - Providing a safe space for clients via one to one weekly sessions at a number of locations across B&NES and surrounding areas.
Children & Young People's Counselling - Provided across local schools and a number of community locations.

Online Counselling - Enabling those who are unable to or have difficulty attending sessions in person to access support with trained counsellors via video links.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) - Courses provided via Zoom for anyone who has been affected by cancer and life-threatening conditions.
