Counselling Support

"My dad, Gordon, was a patient at Alice House Hospice and received the best care possible."

"Sadly, he passed away in 2019, but he had the best life and the best people looking after him."

Emily Pegg & Dad

“I attended children’s bereavement counselling with Jo at Alice House after the death of my dad. It really  helped me process everything that was happening.

Jo has helped me so much. She was very honest and welcoming right from the start and made me feel very comfortable. I learnt so many coping methods that I still use to this day.

I really think I have grown as a person since I attended counselling. I feel like I have become so much more confident and it has given me more opportunities to speak to people. I even decided to go out of my comfort zone and attend college outside of Hartlepool.

If I had one piece of advice to give to anyone having counselling, it would be to just be open.  A lot of people have gone through what you’re going through. If you are more open, you are able to receive more advice and this really helps.

I would like to say thank you to Alice House Hospice for looking after my dad, I couldn’t think of anyone better to care for him and to the Counselling Team. I would recommend the Hospice to anyone who needs it.”   Emily Pegg

Carole Pegg, Emily’s Mam, said “Emily has come such a long way since her counselling with Jo. There is  definitely a positive change in her. She is so much more confident now from what she was like when she first started. She wouldn’t have been able to go out on her own before and now she travels on her own to go to college in a different town. She has done amazing.”
