Information for our clients

June 2020

The Coronavirus (CONVID-19) continues as a significant threat to public health and there are a number of steps that we can all take to keep each other safe. This includes social distancing.

With recent changes to Government advice and as the virus spreads in the last 3 months, I have had to adapt my approach to the delivery of counselling. I am laying out below how II have been working with clients successfully and how I hope to work with clients and supervises during this difficult phase.

These may change as the situation develops so please keep checking back. First I would advise that you keep up to date with the relevant health advice on keeping yourself and your loved ones safe you can find our information on how best to do that here:

We take the care of our clients very seriously and want to do all that we can do to protect you from the spread of the virus while receiving counselling. You should be aware of the following changes to our normal operating procedure.

  1. I am unable to provide face to face counselling while the CONVID-19 infection restrictions are in place.
  2. I am able to provide on line and telephone counselling  with the popular methods of meeting such as Zoom/Skype/Facetime. I am happy to talk you through the main features of using the programs/apps and talk about how they are different from face to face contact.
  3. As restrictions ease it may be possible to return to face to face counselling, however, clients should be aware that is unlikely to be before phase 3 or 4 of the Scottish government plan and after appropriate risk assessments. It is not likely to resume in the near future and I would ask that you consider in-line therapy.

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
