Indvidual session: online support available now
Support groups aren't for everyone and can be a little overwhelming at first. If you'd prefer to talk to someone 'one to one', in confidence, we can offer an online session with one of our trained volunteers. Zoom is user friendly, effective, and we can talk any time.
