This page contains a collection of external website links I have found that may be of use or interest and these will be reviewed and updated from time to time (to check that the information is still valid, appropriate and available and add to the collection). The resources here are not a substitute for proper diagnosis or treatment by an appropriate health professional. However, they may be a good place to find out more information, get additional support or develop good ways of working with and managing distress.
