Spinal cord injury is a traumatic event and coming to terms and adjusting to the many everyday challenges of living with an injury can be especially difficult, not only for the injured person but also for their close family and friends.
There may be times when you feel isolated, are unable to get out and about, have relationship or financial difficulties, are in pain or have other issues that you don’t feel able to talk through with your family.
SIA’s Telephone Counselling service gives you the chance to talk in complete confidence, free of charge, to a suitably qualified professional with experience of supporting spinal cord injured people, their relatives and friends. You may find one call is all you need, but you can also talk on a regular basis if necessary.
Book a session with the Telephone Counselling service by calling our Advice Line on 0800 980 0501. They will take your name and number and arrange for you to be contacted as soon as possible in order to agree a suitable date and time to begin counselling. Alternatively, you can supply your details by completing the online booking form. There is also the opportunity for confidential face-to-face counselling sessions for those who are able to travel to SIA House in Milton Keynes.
The Telephone Counselling Service is supported by the Rayne Foundation.
