As the world struggles with the COVID-19 outbreak, I wanted to take a moment to thank our counsellors, staff, trustees and clients for adapting so swiftly to the change of circumstances we find ourselves in currently.

Protecting staff, counsellors and clients: following the restriction of movement and social distancing regulations, all administrative staff are working from home and face-to-face counselling sessions are being delivered by telephone or video call where possible. This situation will be reviewed in line with ongoing government guidance.

Contacting the office: we continue to take referrals at present, so if you would like to find out more about our services and/or go onto our waiting list, please either email or call the office answerphone on 01223 358149. Messages left on the answerphone are checked daily.

Please rememberĀ to speak clearly and slowly as we are accessing these calls remotely. and sometimes the sound quality is not great!

All post sent to the office is collected and sorted weekly.

The next few months are going to be hard for us all, but we will get through this together. We can all make a difference if we follow the government guidelines.
