Online Support & Seasons Greetings!
Online Support & Seasons Greetings From Paul Carter Counselling! I would just like to take a moment to wish everyone Seasons Greeting for 2020. It certainly has been an incredible year when getting support online or in person has been more important than ever!
Christmas time and New Year can be especially difficult for people so many reasons and this year it is no different, with Covid and Brexit looming there is an awful lot of uncertainty which seems likely to continue. Having resources on hand to help through this period might be useful so I have compiled a short list of online and telephone support below. For more ideas about how you might support yourself formally and informally click here to take a look at another of my blogs.
