Emotional support and counselling

It can be difficult to come to terms with losing your sight. After diagnosis many people struggle to cope with their emotions and often feel frightened, upset or alone.

It can help to speak to someone who is trained to listen and talk through your feelings to find ways of dealing with them. Cam Sight offers counselling and emotional support to people in Cambridgeshire either individually or as part of an emotional support group. This is delivered by our two qualified counsellors.

Our nine week, small group therapy course is offered to people who have recently lost their sight and are struggling to live with their visual impairment. Friendships and long term connections are made with others and it helps to come to terms with an unexpected and uncertain future.

Individual counselling and support for people living with long term blindness or low vision is also available at Cam Sight or your own home.

If you would like to find out more or sign up to take part, contact Annette Chaskalson, Emotional Support Lead via [email protected] or 01223 420033 ext. 22.
