Coronavirus - Covid19. It is important that we cultivate kindness under pressure. It is useful to read the facts.

Please also check your Recognised Medical Website in the country you are based.

During certain world events - our sympathetic arousal can be triggered. 'Fight, Flight, Freeze, Avoid, and so on' (Please see my 'Relaxation Tab' for more information about how this works) which can lead to behaviour to protect ourselves. Completely understandable. During these times it is important to find the medical facts and the best way forward.

I provide on-line/remote sessions - as part of my normal practice. From 23 March my practice will be purely on-line/remote to ensure the safety of clients, until further notice. This also ensures that you continue to get the support that you deserve and need, during these unprecedented times.

25% of the world's population are seeking psychological help at any one time.
75% of the world's population know someone who is seeking help.
