Eccles RFC take mental health issues seriously and have a club mental health partner, TRY TALKINGwho can offer counselling and support during life-changing events such as coping with pandemic restrictions, limited participation in sport, relationship difficulties, anxiety and stress to name a few.

Counselling is a confidential, supportive conversation focussed on what you are experiencing and feeling. It offers an opportunity for you to reflect and be heard, to help you reach a better understanding of yourself and what you may need.

If you are struggling with the continuing Covid-19 lockdown, or have anything else on your mind, the club has a qualified Counsellor available to support your mental health. A free initial chat over zoom is available to all club members. Confidential 1-2-1 sessions at 30% discount, weekly group support or help finding alternative services are also available. 

If you need to talk please don't hesitate to get in touch with Shelley on 07773062404 or by email
