The Butterfly Hospice Trust Therapy service is based on-site in our Therapy Village.
We recognise that it can be difficult to share emotions, thoughts and feelings with those closest to us, especially during difficult times in our lives. That’s why the Butterfly Hospice Trust offers a personalised therapy service where you can receive professional 1-to-1 support and explore the challenges in dealing with a life-limiting condition or bereavement.
Therapy sessions are available by phone, video call, face-to-face or group support, in a safe, calm and secure environment.
Our qualified therapists are trained to listen, offer emotional support and explore various coping strategies based on individual needs, as we recognise the uniqueness of each situation.
Support is available to those aged 18+ with residency in South and East Lincolnshire. You can refer yourself into the service or through your GP/health professional that has been granted your permission.
A qualified Art Therapist is also available at agreed times to help you during a difficult period in your life. Art therapy can be very healing and helps to explore emotions that may not be possible to express in words.
Our therapy services are free to use, thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, however any donations to the service are greatly appreciated and helps us continue to develop and grow, providing this vital support to many others.
Guests in our hospice also have the opportunity to receive a weekly visit from ‘Therapy Dogs Nationwide’. An organisation ran by volunteers, Therapy Dogs Nationwide attend weekly, allowing patients and their families to spend some quality time with a fully trained Therapy Dog, proven to boost happiness and help those who are unable to have their own dog with them.
