I have retired from my clinical practice, so I am not able to offer individual advice. However, there are many dedicated professionals working in a variety of organisations who are available to help if you have questions or concerns.

This is a list of some of the websites that may help you to deal with your own questions and concerns. It isn’t comprehensive, is mainly UK-based, and there may be excellent services available to you that I am unaware of. I haven’t attempted to make this an exhaustive list, but it’s a place to start.

All of these links are run by organisations that will ensure that they are reasonably up-to-date. If you find other helpful websites, do compare their advice with the advice available through these links. If it looks similar, you have probably found something you can trust. If the information on unlisted sites is very different from those in this list, treat it with caution.

I hope you will find the advice you are looking for, and with it the peace of mind that makes our difficulties endurable.
