Greater Manchester

It can be difficult to come to terms with being diagnosed with sight loss. It’s perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed, but it can help to have someone to talk to who can empathise and help you process the many emotions you can feel after your diagnosis; that's why we offer counselling across Greater Manchester, and can even offer it over the phone.

Henshaws counselling service

Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk about your problems or anything that is upsetting you in a safe, confidential environment. We offer sessions at a time that suits you, at Henshaws hubs in Wythenshawe, Bolton, Harpurhey, Salford, Trafford and at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. We can also offer telephone sessions to ensure that everyone can access counselling, wherever they live.

Get in touch at or ring 0300 222 5555 to find out more and to access this free service.

“I've made more progress from talking things through than I have from years of taking anti-depressants.”

Get in touch with our First Step team on 0300 222 5555. A member of the team will take some details from you and refer you to our counsellor who will contact you direct to make an appointment.

Counselling is part of our Pathway to Wellbeing project, which is generously funded by the Big Lottery Fund. It is available to visually impaired adults around the Harpurhey, Wythenshawe, Trafford and Salford areas, but an assessment will need to be taken before the sessions begin.
