Personal Assistant to Marianne

Hannah is fabulous, everyone should have Hannah in their lives. 

She handles appointment scheduling and terms and conditions. 

She likes a good cup of Yorkshire Tea. 

With the exception of Sarah's auricular acupuncture, all therapeutic work with Good Thinking psychological Services is currently conducted via zoom or skype sessions. Our clients have found this to be an effective way to engage with therapy. Working in this way helps us keep everyone safe and allows us to continue to practice to support your mental health during these testing times.
