Counselling

It can be difficult to come to terms with macular disease, finding out you may lose your central vision and adapting to changes in your vision. Some people can find it difficult to cope, feel shocked, upset or isolated.

Sometimes it helps to speak to a professional counsellor who is trained to listen and will help you talk through your feelings and find ways of dealing with them.

Our team of professional, accredited counsellors are available for free confidential telephone sessions with anyone in the UK or internationally. For more information, please call our helpline on 0300 3030 111 or email counselling@macularsociety.org.

All our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), abide by its ethical framework, and are subject to its complaints procedure.
