As at 5 pm 21/9/2020 my books are closed - that is I am not taking new referrals with some exceptions noted below.   If you want Compassion-Focussed Therapy, please call me after reading the conditions in 'Conditions of Counselling' and request that your GP calls me to affirm you are willing to do this and that you are not prescribed Benzodiazepines. I will then consider your request as things change.  The other exception is anyone who is a regular attendee of the support meditation groups I run either locally or internationally for the CFMSC.

Everyone can still apply for group therapy that is currently on offer.

In the meantime, you may like to try some of the meditations available in the shop 'Things to Buy'.

If it is an emergency, please contact your local doctor, local Emergency Department or Lifeline on 13 11 14
