MS-UK Counselling

MS-UK Counselling is confidential and is open to people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), and is the only service of its kind available in the UK.

Counselling is a process that invites you to talk about your thoughts and feelings with a qualified professional. Counsellors do not give advice but help you to explore your experiences so that you can find your own way forward.

Our counselling service is focused on helping you understand yourself in light of your MS and explore its emotional impact on your life.

MS-UK counsellors are registered or accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with knowledge of MS and its impact on mental wellbeing. MS-UK is a BACP organisational member and our number is 275169.

Your sessions will be weekly, last 50 minutes, and be delivered over the phone.
