Updated 23rd March
To my clients,
Following the Prime Minister's address this evening and after taking best practice advice I've made the decision to discontinue face-to-face counselling sessions at this time.
We get to try something new!
Your mental health is so important (especially at the moment!), I hope we can try out adjustments to see what counselling support can look like over the coming weeks.
I am able to offer counselling sessions via Zoom (a free, secure video conferencing app) or by telephone contact (me phoning you). I have been working with a number of clients online for many months now and it does work (with an occasional, technical glitch).
As per my previous information, I appreciate that situations can change quickly so if you do need to cancel sessions there won't be any cancellation fees.
Finally, as always, I take confidentiality very seriously. If I were to contract coronavirus and the NHS required contact testing, for the interests of public health I may need to share with the NHS your name and contact details but not the context in which I know you.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do talk to me.
