A counselling service for people affected by cancer is to begin at the new Western Isles Cancer Care centre on Cromwell Street next week.

Counsellor Dolina Grant, who is trained by the Scottish counselling and psychotherapy body COSCA and by the bereavement care charity CRUSE, is to be joined by Marina Sinclair, who is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

A spokesman for WICCI said: “When gathering initial feedback about what those affected by cancer would like to see available at the WICCI Centre, a counselling service was the most requested.

“Whether you want to talk about the impact of your diagnosis and any anxieties you may have, develop strategies to help you deal with the emotional effects of treatment or if a member of your family is dealing with cancer and you would just like to speak to someone - please do not hesitate in contacting the WICCI Centre. Your privacy will be respected at all times.”

Marina Sinclair’s first available appointment is on Thursday 26th September while Dolina Grant has appointment time available from Tuesday 17th September.

You can make appointments by calling in at the centre at 87 Cromwell Street or by calling WICCI on 01851 706721.
