COVID-19, UPDATE: Please note that at present I only offer sessions over video platforms like Zoom. I appreciate that some people do not like this and may feel more distant and disengaged from the therapist. However, although this does happen to people and the feeling does make sense, sessions over the internet could still be useful!
While the pandemic is still affecting everyday life, try to acknowledge the challenge and struggles you are going through and at the same time maintain a sense of optimism as much as possible; it will end, we will go through it. Stay safe and healthy,
