Due to public health concerns about COVID -19 I, like many of my counselling colleagues, have decided to work solely on-line and not offer face to face counselling sessions for the time being.
This is a huge change, made at speed and with very little consultation with my current clients- not the way I usually l like to work AT ALL. So, it was a difficult decision. And in many ways goes against my philosophy of offering accessible, warm support which is gadget-free and relational.
These are unusual times and though it may feel counter instinctive, I must act for the greater good and take swift action to protect my current clients, family and community to avoid social contact and potentially spreading the virus, and to ensure that some support can continue even in these times of restricted movement.
So… for the next month at least, all sessions will be on-line and will mean you need access to a computer / tablet / device (with reliable power source / battery) with a camera and speakers, OR a smart phone. You’ll also need somewhere private and safe to be whilst we connect on-line.
Sessions will be offered at a reduced rate, and there will be increased flexibility as to when sessions happen, how long they are as well as a more flexible cancellation policy.
Sessions may also feel a little weird at first- but then we are all getting used to that! And- as with so many things- we will work together and stay in close contact to make sure you as a client feel supported and get what you need and this strange time.
If you have any more questions then please ping me a message- I am open for business.
Take care, and stay safe,
