Betty’s Story

“The counselling service was so helpful to me; I was on a rocky road and had lost my focus and purpose. I was, and remain, very grateful and appreciative of the service and Blind Veterans. I was greatly comforted to talk to someone who understood and did not judge me”.

Ted’s Story

“Counselling was far more useful than I ever imagined. The counsellor was a lovely lady, easy to talk to and professional. We got on extremely well and I could speak my mind. I’ve been through a bad experience, bad times with Charles Bonnet Syndrome when it was so frightening. The counselling was very beneficial and I’m happy to recommend the service to others”.

“I didn’t think I would like counselling but I really hit it off with the counsellor and thought she was very skilled. The sessions helped me through my bereavement and gave me the space to grieve.
