Strategies for coping with the impact of the Coronovirus outbreak
I've updated one of my handouts specifically to help with current stress around the coronovirus. You can download here. Just click on the link.
If you need copies of any of my resources and handouts you can download them here. You can choose to print them off or why not save to your ipad or tablet and then you'll always have them to hand. Just click on the link.
At times I may not be able to assist you, either because I have no spaces or because you require a different type of therapy, or area of expertise. Whilst I can't recommend other therapists, as it's very much your decision, these are therapists who I have worked with or who I'm aware can offer alternative expertise.
Adrian Langham is a gay male therapist who specialises in working with men as well as gender and sexual minorities. He is also a qualified Mindfulness practitioner. He has experience in many areas of mental health. Contact him via his website.
