MS Counselling

DisabilityPlus empowers you with a Counsellor who has Multiple Sclerosis; this enables full cultural support. MS Counselling is essential among the different healthcare specialities contributing to caring for MS. Not simply because of the increased risk with MS for several mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety, but because MS can affect you in every aspect of life, including a sense of self and participation in family and community.

Mental Health

Most people with Multiple Sclerosis do not have mental health problems. however, some people can realise that they are becoming depressed & anxious. 

Our Service supports people with mental health, whether pre-existing issues have worsened or a new condition stems from multiple sclerosis. Our specialist therapists understand the problems MS can have on a person’s mental & emotional health.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) can be an overwhelming challenge. One day you can feel strong and resilient, but the next day you can feel helpless and isolated. These days, getting an extra push or boost from others can make all the difference.

MS Counselling gives you time and space to work through your problems. Therapy helps you gain a different perspective on problems and issues. Therapy provides a safe, non-judgemental and respectful environment. Counselling can help you regain well-being and balance in your life
