Globally, according to the Movember Foundation, on average a man is lost to suicide every minute and 3 out of 4 suicides are men. I wonder if you are surprised by these figures. Or maybe you are painfully aware of someone who has been lost to suicide. The truth is, men are really bad at […]

- Can you access counselling right now?2nd January 2021 - 1:07 pm
Now we are in 2021, the uncertainty continues as we move into further Coronavirus restrictions. If you need help with something in your life right now, you can still receive counselling and psychotherapy.
Therapists are moving more and more to remote working – that is, holding sessions by remote means (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp etc), making use of the wonderful technology available. In my experience, these methods of working are proving very successful and I, like many therapists in Lancaster, will be providing more remote services in the future.
However, I recognise that many people, for all sorts of reasons, cannot attend counselling by remote means and need to come to a consulting room.
