Counselling Service with Erika Klemperer
My name is Erika Klemperer and I have been the resident therapist and group leader at Hammerson House for the past 10 years. I have special knowledge of working with older people and am also an assessor for AgeUK/Camden.
Hammerson House is special in that it offers a unique opportunity for residents to talk over any anxieties or problems they might have. This counselling service has proven to be invaluable in helping new residents settle into residential care as well as in working with any other issues that they might want to discuss in confidence with an understanding professional. Relatives of the residents often tell me that they appreciate knowing there is a professional to whom their parent can turn to on a regular basis.
I hold a group once a month that is open to all residents. This is a confidential space in which residents can get to know each other in a more personal way The title of each group is decided amongst us and have included topics such as: Can There be Happiness After 80?, Independence and Getting Older, Managing Change and Making Friends in Later Life
