Health and The Nervous System

I hope you are keeping well and safe. Friday 20th March was my last day in ‘clinic’ as in face to face, as Neal’s Yard have closed all their rooms and shops for the foreseeable future, so ALL my clinic sessions are online, so do connect with me if you want to book a session. Having spoken to my parents who hear a lot of the ‘fear’ around being vulnerable and the ‘deaths’ from the pandemic, keep in mind all those who have...
