Telephone counselling service

If you are a person experiencing sight loss or supporting a person with sight loss, you may find it helpful to talk through your feelings with someone outside your circle of family and friends.

Having the opportunity to talk things over can help you understand your feelings, and enable you to share difficult thoughts and think about ways of coping with the changes in your life.

Perhaps you are experiencing feelings of sadness, anger or anxiety and this is affecting you on a day-to-day basis. Maybe it is causing you to worry about the future.

The service offers telephone counselling with a trained counsellor. Once you have contacted us, our counsellor will contact you to discuss and arrange a mutually-convenient appointment with you.

The initial counselling contract is for six to ten sessions. The counselling session is 50 minutes. A new appointment is made at the end of each session. After six sessions, the counsellor will review with you your ongoing counselling needs.

The counselling contract can be extended to meet your ongoing needs or we can work towards a therapeutic ending.  A brief ongoing record of each session will be made.

Counselling confidentiality is very important to us and our service is confidential. Your counsellor adheres to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework and complies with the Data Protection Act. www.bacp.co.uk
