"A person's a person, no matter how small" - Dr. Seuss

Life has changed dramatically for so many of us and it is ok not to feel ok in this time of uncertainty . All of us are adapting to a new way of life and some aspects are harder than others. As humans we have an in-born desire to be connected to others, we need human contact - to help us feel loved, valued, wanted and part of something. This is especially important when we are faced with difficulties, as we would normally turn to family or a trusted friend.

But things are different at the moment, that family member or friend may not be so easy to reach out to. So, if you have moments of feeling alone and not sure how to move forward with a difficulty, please be assured that this is natural.

You can connect with us via video or telephone call - in response to the current climate our service is currently free of charge. If you would like us to contact you, please complete the contact form. Once we have received this we will give you a call.

We may not be able to respond immediately, but we will be in touch. In the meantime and if you need support out of hours all of the below websites are fantastic resources to help you get through
