Sleep Management sessions
For those who are self-managing symptoms of long COVID, these monthly 1-hour sessions focus on answering your questions about improving sleep and are open to anyone registered with SNELCAS. Sessions take place from 4pm to 5pm.
Counselling can provide a safe, non-judgement, confidential one to one space to you. In counselling you can talk about your worries etc and how this has impacted your life.
Under this service, we are able to provide you with six free sessions in either Ipswich or Bury St Edmunds. You will need to be registered with SNELCAS before you self-refer. Please note that we are only offering daytime appointments.
