As this is a particularly stressful time for everyone, Aspire Adoption Services has funded Clinical Psychologists to offer rapid assistance to adopted and Special Guardian families, until the end of June 2020. All families are impacted differently by the pandemic and if you and your family are particularly struggling speaking to a psychologist may help with:  

  • Anxieties & fears related to contamination
  • Bereavement/loss of relatives/friends to Covid 19
  • Difficulties within your adult relationships
  • Feelings of loneliness, isolation or depression
  • Employment concerns and anxieties
  • Sleeping difficulties/ exhaustion/ lack of self-care
  • Responding to aggression and violence in the family
  • Responding to withdrawal and non-communication from your child
