What have you found helpful accessing the service via the Telephone?
It was lovely to talk to Sarah each week, she has a lovely personality and she made me feel happy at each call. The encouragement was really helpful. I was happy with the telephone appointments, and would not have attended a group setting.
Having someone to talk to for 12 weeks until the stress was over, helped me enormously
