    The Easing of Restrictions

    This month's podcast looks at life slowly returning to normal with the opening of shops and outdoor eating following another lockdown, and the anxieties that can come with this. We discuss how we will be approaching all the changes and how we can be kind to ourselves during this time, as what one person might be comfortable doing someone else may not. In this podcast we acknowledge how everyone is different and will react to these changes differently.
