Learning disability

A learning-disabled person has difficulties in understanding new or complex information, along with a reduced ability to cope independently, and has had these from a young age.

There are many other kinds of learning difficulties, for example “specific learning difficulties” such as dyslexia, or people with head injuries or recovering from a stroke. We are sorry our service does not include people with these kinds of difficulties.

Learning disability and limited language do not prevent you from taking part in counselling, but some mainstream services have difficulty offering the flexibility and understanding needed.
