Information for our clients

Coronavirus

Coronavirus will continue to offer healthcare challenges in the future. We will continue to change our practice to keep ourselves and clients safe. This may include restrictions such as facemasks from time to time. We will notify you in advance of your session of what is expected.

Clients

Your responsibilities as a client

  • Not to attend counselling if you have a respiratory illness unless you know (have a test) that it is not COVID
  • Not to attend counselling if you have been in contact with those who have COVID
  • If you have COVID to allow a break of 10 days before returning to therapy and inform us
  • To arrive at your start time as I have no place for you to wait safely

Counsellor

Our responsibilities

  • To keep the counselling room and other areas clean and cleaned between clients
  • To cancel your sessions if I have tested positive for COVID
  • To take a break of 10 days if I catch COVID
  • Provide hand sanitiser for cleaning hands

 

Masks are optional and you can wear a mask if it makes you feel more comfortable. I am also happy to wear a mask if that makes you feel more comfortable.

Particularly in the winter months it is possible that COVID or other viruses may surge and I may ask clients to temporarily adopt an infection control practice.

If your face to face session has to be cancelled because of COVID, you can re-schedule without financial penalty or you can swap to a Zoom session.

Now and in the future I will be guided by best healthcare practice, the Scottish Government rules and COVID safe practices.

Finally, if you have any particular concerns please contact me before your session and I will be happy to talk them through with you.

Kind regards

Graeme
