Julie Cole is Family Support Counselling Lead at the Fountain Centre. She offer one to one counselling for children and young people under the age of 18, as well as guidance and support for parents when counselling might not be appropriate. Julie also offers support for teachers and other healthcare professionals. “I love working with children and young people. They tell it like it is. If they don’t think it is working they soon let you know! I have lots of ideas for projects that the children and families can be involved in, and believe if we can work with young people early enough, the impact of cancer on their young lives doesn’t have to be a negative one. At the moment there is very little provision for children affected by cancer, and I think this will fill a vital gap in the excellent service already provided”.
