Can I get counselling?
Losing your sight, or finding your sight is deteriorating, can be difficult to cope with as it can affect so many different aspects of your life. Our coming to terms with sight loss webpage discusses the impact of sight loss. If you think that you want to talk to somebody then we can help you decide if counselling is for you and explain how to go about finding a counsellor as well as other types of support.
Our Sight Loss Counselling team (RNIB and Action working together) offer confidential telephone support, information and counselling to people who, because of sight loss, are experiencing emotional difficulties.
In addition, our Talk and Support service provides an informal opportunity to meet new friends and chat to other adults with sight loss over the phone.
