You may be interested in this service if you are over the age of 18 years, live in South Yorkshire; and are a family member of someone who is currently serving in the armed forces; or a veteran of the armed forces.


How can the service help me?

The service provides free, confidential counselling for up to 16 sessions in an environment which encourages you to talk about the issues that are important to you.

  • Are you struggling to adjust to military life?
