The New Year – a time to say goodbye and a time to say hello….
A final thought for 2020 and what a year it has been. Full of restrictions, losses and immense challenges; and yet there is hope for a better future if we can all continue to pull together to help create it.
As the strain of the restrictions due to COVID-19 roll on, help is still available through online or telephone counselling and whilst you may prefer face to face, these approaches can still allow you to explore your issues and find solutions.
