Disconnection and desperation

The individual sacrifices and efforts for our collective wellbeing are bringing out some beautiful opportunities for creativity, compassion and solidarity. And hopefully a stronger, more fair, more cooperative society will result.

Alongside that, there is also acute pain and trauma stemming from the disconnection. This includes being unable to be with the people we love in the moments we perhaps most want to connect, when we/they are ill or dying. Current NHS visiting guidance (see below) means that only one immediate family member may visit someone in hospital if they are having end of life care. And only if they are showing no symptoms themselves, not at risk themselves.

If you are struggling with the lack of contact with loved ones, of being unable to communicate what they mean to you, of not having the option to hold a funeral, of considering your own mortality or facing your own death in isolation… Or any other challenging feelings and thoughts around living and dying at the moment, counselling will give you the space to share, explore and process that right now.

Free initial session

Book in a free 50 minute session to talk about whether telephone counselling could help you.

louise.allen.counsellor@gmail.com or 07562 635869

I have flexible availability during the day and evening at the moment, and offer that first session for free so you can decide if I’m the right counsellor for you.

My usual rate is £40 per session for phone therapy, but if money is tight we can talk about reduced rates, so don’t let that put you off getting the support you need. Please mention this in your initial contact or during that first session.
