COVID-19 Precautions for our Appointments

Welcome to my covid guidance page. If you have been sent a link to this page then you probably have a face to face appointment booked with myself.  The following guidances are given so as to protect you and me and others we may have contact with in our lives.

I have tried to keep them short and as simple as possible.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.

Priority Guidance- when not to atttend

Do not attend sessions if you or someone you live with has been advised to shield by your doctor.

Do not attend sessions if you or anyone you live with has symptoms that could be a sign of a Corona Virus infection.

Do not attend sessions if you or someone you live with has recently been in close proximity to:

  • Someone who has been tested positive
  • Someone who is waiting for Covid test results
  • Someone who is showing symptoms of Conrona virus.

On arrival

  1. When knocking on the front door, please step back so that I can open and move back to let you through.
  2. I usually meet people on the drive especially at our first meeting during the pandemic.
  3. After you have been once, it is likely that the front door will be already open for you if I am not on the drive.

In-session Precautions to Support you

  • Hand gel will be available next to your chair, please help yourself.
  • During session, we will be sat 2 meters apart.
  • Try not to touch any door handles or door frames when moving in and out of the room/ house, allow me to do that.
  • If using the visa car payment facility, payment can be taken via visa card machine by using wave facility at a 2 meter distance.
  • After our session, I will leave the room first opening the doors and you can follow at a 2 meter distance so that you have no need to touch anything.

My Current Contribution to Covid-19 Safety

• I no longer offer drinks, please bring your own.

• I do not supply tissues (please bring your own if you might require them)

• I cannot offer access to the toilet in the property due to covid precaution advice.

• Windows will remain open throughout the session, some people bring a blanket for cold days.

Additional Considerations.

Please be aware that should the government enforce another lockdown our face to face sessions will have to end accordingly and we can decide if this happens, whether we switch to telephone or online sessions, or pause our working until restrictions are lifted.

If I have to self-isolate for any reason then face to face sessions will be put on hold, possibly to be replaced by online sessions or therapy postponed- whichever is most appropriate.

We will need to continue to adjust according to Government guideline updates over the coming months.
