CURRENT PRACTICE STATUS

Due to the easing of lockdown restrictions I plan to return to seeing clients face to face from the start of June 2021. I plan to offer face to face sessions on certain days of the week at my office at 16 Forth Street. I will also continue to offer teletherapy for those who prefer this on other days of the week.

 

Best Wishes

Dr Fiona Simpson
