Anxiety Apps

Anxiety Apps are increasing in popularity, as the COVID pandemic has continued people are struggling with their mental health more and more, and particularly their anxiety. People’s anxiety may be about the pandemic itself and catching the virus, around family, being in lockdown and always being with those we live with can put strain on relationships. It could be anxiety about jobs, how it will be when we return to work, or if in fact we might lose our job.

Counselling Support no matter your locationRemote counselling sessions delivered online or over the phone

Because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, my face to face counselling services are closed until further notice.

However, I am able to offer counselling sessions via telephone or online video calling. There are many advantages to this, such as keeping yourself and others safe, but you may find it's more convenient to have your sessions from the comfort of your own home as well as saving time and money.

My services are no longer restricted to a location and you are welcome to contact me if you need support regardless of where you live. Call now on 07843 813 537 to book your first session or if you would just like a friendly chat about your issues and how I can help.
