Have you ever felt like there was something you really wanted to achieve, an issue you wanted to resolve, a question you wanted to answer, or you would welcome help adjusting to living with TM, ADEM or NMO?
This new service of coaching is available to you, whether you have TM/ADEM/NMO, are a carer, or a parent of a child with TM/ADEM/NMO. Coaching is a series of confidential purposeful conversations between you and a coach where you work together to figure out what you want to achieve and develop an action plan to do that. The Coaching Bursary consists of 6 coaching sessions with an experienced qualified coach. You will need to pay £30 (£5 per session) and the TM Society will pay the remainder of the costs.

Thanks to all of our members (over 100) who responded to the original call to suggest questions for research and then later voted on their importance. The research priorities cover all spinal cord injuries, whether caused by accidents or by inflammation eg TM and Cauda Equina Syndrome. More information is available on the SCI PSP, the SCI/PSP press release and the top ten priorities.
