Marches Counselling Service

Long Covid Support and course info

Herefordshire Council joins local grant givers, Eveson Trust and Bulmers Benevolent Fund, to support the Marches Counselling Service (MCS) in working with people with Long Covid. Sadly, physical symptoms have been seen by some as ‘all in the mind’, or alternatively the emotional impact of contracting long covid is not acknowledged.

Aware that many people with long-covid are finding it difficult to access support. The service is offering group-work looking at management of the condition, which can be accessed online. Courses are initially ten sessions of 90 minutes each and offer different approaches to managing long-covid. Course leaders are experienced therapists who recognise the core need for pacing, the variety of physical symptoms associated with this condition, and the potential for trauma being present. They are all experienced in helping people deal with difficult emotions and trauma reactions. Each course will accommodate up to twelve people.

If this is of interest to you, please contact MCS. You will be offered an initial confidential assessment which enables you to ask any questions, discuss payment and which course makes sense for you. Courses are planned to begin in September. If you would like more information, please contact us on marches.counselling@gmail.com or visit our website: www.marchescounselling.org
