Carers' beliefs about counselling: a community participatory study in Wales

This interpretivist community participatory study explores carers’ beliefs about the potential usefulness of counselling in relation to the caring role. Twenty semi-structured interviews with carers were transcribed and analysed thematically.

Only carers with counselling experience had an awareness of counselling as focussing on changing feelings, thoughts, attitudes and behaviours.
