Macmillan Dove Community Counselling Service (MDCCS) is a joint initiative between St Luke’s Hospice, Thurrock MIND and supported by Macmillan Cancer Support. The service aims to support patients receiving palliative care and their families resident in Basildon and Thurrock Districts. We also provide bereavement support for non-cancer related palliative care referrals or other bereavements from 18 years of age. The service can also provide couples counselling for spouses / partners following bereavement. This service is free of charge. Counselling is available at venues in Grays, Corringham and Basildon.
