Covid-19 Update

Urgent Client Notice 23/03/2020

In this rapidly changing situation and in light of current national guidance we have made the difficult decision to postpone all appointments with immediate effect, in order to protect our clients and staff. If you have an appointment booked in March, April or May, please do not attend.
Appointments will be re-scheduled in August 2020. Sandra will be contacting you to arrange this.
If you wish to make a new appointment please email
We apologise for the inconvenience that this may cause but we believe that it is essential to reduce face-to-face contact to a minimum for at least the next three months, for everyone’s health and well-being.
