For some, the lockdown has been a blessed relief from dealing with everyday life, which they otherwise found overloading and stressful.
For others, the enforced break from ‘normal life’ has been equally distressing, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation.
All of these issues are very familiar to us and we see them frequently amongst many of our clients.
