Handouts & questionnaires for panic, agoraphobia & depersonalization

Over 900,000 people now access IAPT services each year, and the 'five year forward view for mental health' committed to expanding services further, alongside improving quality."

Love makes labour light.  Love alone gives value to all things. 

- St Teresa of Avila
