We are all going through a very difficult time. Please look after yourself and each other. Please keep regular meals and structure to your day, even if you are at home. Maintain your sleep pattern if possible. Don’t forget a shower or a bath!
We have to keep our distance from other people but this doesn’t mean that you should be socially isolated. Pick up the phone and call your friends and family, listen to your favourite tune or watch a good programme.
If you are suffering from anxiety, try and keep your thinking under control – remember something pleasant, look at the pictures from your last holiday etc. Use distraction techniques – counting to 10 is simple yet effective, breathing in slowly through your nose and breathing out through your mouth whilst counting is also helpful. Check the YouTube or other resources for more options.
If anyone needs to have an appointment, please note that due to current situation with corona virus all appointments are conducted via video-link.
This service is done through Heydoc and here is the link to explain about video consultations and privacy concerns CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
