MertonVision are offering a new counselling service with avisually impaired, qualified therapist who has experience of working with people in the following areas:
• Disability and sight-loss
• Long term illness and end-of-life care.
• Bereavement and grief
• Adult carers
• Depression & Anxiety
• Domestic abuse
The service will offer confidential, person-centred counselling that is free of charge to anyone wishing to talk through worries or concerns they may have.
There will be an initial telephone session, arranged in advance to check if counselling is right for you at this time.
This first session will last around an hour and you will be able to ask any questions about the service or counselling in general.
If you are happy to take up counselling, you will be allocated 8 weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes, carried out on a Wednesday at an agreed time.
These sessions will currently take place over the telephone, owing to restrictions in place due to Covid 19.
Although there are plans to resume face-to-face counselling in the new year, the telephone option can be made available for anyone finding this more accessible.
Please be aware that there are a limited number of places available and so there may be a waiting list.
This service is only available to Merton residents
