Feeling mentally unwell or not like your usual self?

Psychiatric and mental health conditions are very common illnesses, that are frequently neglected, can cause great suffering and impact any area of your life.

During period of increased stress, like with the threat of the Coronavirus/Covid-19 illness, it is more than ever important to look after yourself. Anxiety disorders, in particular Health anxiety and Obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD) can get develop or get worse. It is important to keep calm and manage your life as best possible but not as easy to do at times. I can help if you feel your mind is getting out of your control and you are losing your sleep and ability to do what you need.
