Due to Covid-19 I understand there will be a raise in panic and depressive symptoms without the usually salary and means for funding. I'm reducing my fees from £80 to £65 per 50 minute online or telephone session for individual sessions for the next few months so that support is accessible for more people. Rest assured...
