What will the sessions involve?

At Tavistock Relationships we are here to explore the issues that dementia can bring about in your relationship.

You will work together with one person from our specialist team who will think with you about your situation and help you to find new strategies and ways of adjusting together to the changes that dementia can bring.

What will it cost?

Our work with you starts with an initial consultation with a counsellor or psychotherapist.

As a charity we provide relationship support whatever your financial circumstances. The cost of each session will be based on your income and your overall circumstances, with no minimum fee. The level of your fee will be discussed with you at your first appointment.
