Counselling

Lady talking on the phone

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 can be extremely difficult to deal with. After diagnosis many people struggle to cope with their emotions and often 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) and abide by its ethical framework and procedures.
