Still Swimming Along in the Tide of Change
A year on and therapy sessions have survived a 12 month period of working remotely with a whole range of client problems. Video calls have been more popular than telephone consultations, with people quickly overcoming any camera shyness or reservations.
The CoVid vaccination programme has inspired many to keep going now with hope for the future and a return to a new normal, but losses are still impacting many.
Loss of loved ones to the virus with a failure to grieve and concurrent despair for the future being evident. Cancer patient's left worrying about treatment delays and the possibility of negative outcomes.
