COVID-19

 

The outbreak of coronavirus is affecting many people throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. The problems associated with the virus are not just physical. Many of those who are not directly affected by the illness itself may still experience symptoms of fear, anxiety and depression. Previously existing symptoms may become worse. With government-led lockdowns in numerous countries, many are experiencing long periods of life on their own, or in some cases having to spend extended time with relatives where relationships are strained. Traditional sources of support from friends, work colleagues, GPs, counsellors, religious affiliations or others, may simply be less available or, at worst, unavailable. At Hartland Psychology, we continue to respond to clients via electronic media. So don’t hesitate to contact us if you think we can help.
