Thursday 10 October 2019 is World Mental Health Day; an opportunity for employers, organisations and individuals to think seriously about how they can address the stigma attached to poor mental health and seek to improve the lives of millions of people who suffer, daily, from mental health issues. Suicide prevention will be at the very top of many peoples’ lists this year as hundreds of thousands of people are still taking their own lives globally each year and suicide is still the leading cause of death among young people aged 20 to 34 years in the UK.
- 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.
