Is it worth going to therapy during Covid-19 and is it even possible?

Dear Roe,

I’m in my 30s and have a really rewarding but stressful job. I do have wonderful friends – who I don’t want to burden as everyone is quite stretched with life at the moment. I’m single and don’t live at home but do have a warm, loving family. If honest, I had quite a challenging childhood and as a result have found it difficult to think I’m worthy of love. Often I think I’m self-absorbed, even though I don’t discuss this with anyone.
