In psychodynamic work with families, the role of fathers is often neglected . . . .

With increasing suicide levels in men, we are at last starting to realise the vulnerability in men and fathers. 

Many fathers are finding it harder than ever to emotionally support themselves and their children through this anxious time, and in particular cases the challenges for father’s are compounded by the experience of lockdown.

Andrew is hosting a free discussion group to think about the role of fathers.  Meetings are held on alternate Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm.
