COVID-19 Online Services
With the COVID-19 pandemic becoming part of our new normal, many people are telling me that the crisis is powerfully disrupting their grief.
Having daily lives upturned, being kept indoors, and seeing people less can increase emotions that were already hard to cope with. On top of this, even the most supportive family and friends can be preoccupied by their own responses to the crisis.
Hearing these difficult stories inspired me to partner with Nathan MacArthur from Sydney Grief Counselling Services to offer extra online services. By working together during this time, we are able to offer more services, more support.
As therapists with clients throughout Australia and overseas, we are well-experienced in providing online and telephone counselling services. We support research findings that show online therapy, or 'telehealth', is just as effective as in-person therapy. We both believe online therapy is a convenient way to access support during this crisis and beyond.

A free and downloadable Surviving Grief in the time of COVID-19 information sheet
Upcoming Online Support Groups to bring people together to access support in this time of physical isolation
