What kind of help do you need?
Need Urgent Help or Support?
Due to the current unprecedented circumstances, it is particularly important to engage in self-care.
Remember to give yourself time and space to make use of the therapy or classes and ensure you are getting enough rest and nourishment.
Sometimes during the course of therapy, difficult emotions can come up or events can happen in the week which can cause more distress. Your safety and support is very important to us. If emotions are becoming very overwhelming it is important that you let someone know how you are feeling. Think about who you could tell (e.g. a friend or relative), in order to support you.
If you are distressed or experiencing despair, try to speak to somebody now.
- Is there a family member or a friend you could call?
- Is there a neighbour or colleague who can help?
