MS-UK is piloting single session therapy as a response to the anxieties and concerns that MSers have shared with us about the impact of COVID-19. There are currently only 20 spaces available for this first pilot so book quickly, but should this pilot be successful we would look to continue to offer it as a regular service.
What is Single Session Therapy?
Single session therapy is a focussed one-off session with an MS-UK counsellor who uses their counselling skills to listen and help you find a way forward with a specific MS-related issue that is impacting on your daily life right now. The session will be conducted either by telephone or Zoom to ensure the service is accessible UK wide.
How do I sign up?
If you want to find out more about this pilot then please email Diana Crowe, Head of Services at firstname.lastname@example.org who will send you more information about how to take part. Please note that you must have an MS diagnosis to qualify for this pilot.
About MS-UK Counselling
MS-UK Counselling is a confidential service for people who have a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) and live in the UK. It is the only service of its kind available in the country.
Counselling is a talking therapy. It gives you the opportunity to talk and reflect in a confidential and supportive space with a qualified counsellor who is registered or accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). MS-UK is a BACP organisational member and our number is 275169.
Counsellors do not offer advice or tell you what to do but help you to talk about your experiences to make it easier to find a way forward.
Your mental health and emotional wellbeing are linked to your experience of MS so our counsellors have had training about living with MS.
Counsellors help you to explore how the pandemic and MS may be affecting your wellbeing and how you are adapting emotionally.
