We will be offering telephone or online sessions to those of you who want to carry on having your counselling sessions as previously arranged.
We also welcome any new clients that would like to start counselling via this method, please feel free to phone or email. If we can't answer, leave a message and one of our counsellors will call you back - we will continue to offer the free initial 15 minute phone consultation.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and please remember, this is a temporary situation and we look forward to meeting clients old and new in the near future.
