We are continuing to monitor and follow the advice and guidance from Public Health England and the Department of Education in respect to Coronavirus (COVID-19) as we support children, young people, adults and families at Stortford Therapy Space.
Although the confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Essex and Hertfordshire remain relatively low, the number of cases in the UK has increased and as of the 13th March Gov.uk have raised the UK risk level to hight. The advice from the government remains that we continue our normal activities.

Any updates and changes will be sent out to you directly by your therapist/counsellor and on this website, so please check regularly.
We appreciate your cooperation on behalf of the Stortford Therapy Space community.
