Based on advice from government & health officials about the importance of social distancing to reduce overburdening our healthcare system, I am holding appointments virtually until we are advised otherwise. Ensuring counselling supports are available as usual, along with protecting everyone's health and safety, are my top priorities. Please rest assured that my office hours will remain the same, and that virtual appointments via ZOOM (a free, secure video calling app) work very well.
