Like many people, my plans have all been thrown up in the air by the lockdown. My sabbatical from the Fire Service has been put on hold and I have been moved to a new station. My counselling teaching has been suspended as has the work I was doing in schools and at the Dreadnought centre.
I am having to find new ways to work and to connect with people. I am available to work with clients using technology – Zoom, Skype or phone call sessions each have advantages that I had not previously realised. As a counsellor, I am concerned about peoples mental health during these difficult times and I am pleased to discover there are new ways I can work to continue supporting clients.
