The Coronavirus Outbreak (COVID-19)
The widening pandemic has hit globally impacting nations hard. The direction of life has taken an unexpected change causing a lot of individuals to experience high levels of anxiety, many of whom continue to worry about dealing with the uncertainties that may lay ahead. This truly is a very challenging time.
With this in mind my focus is on your present need to be able to relationally connect with someone who can offer attentive empathetic support when face to face contact proves difficult.
Therefore as a result of the need to self isolate, I offer my support to you through telephone, Skype, Zoom and video call through WhatsApp at a reduced fee of £30 per therapeutic hour.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
