Learning from COVID

Making a safe space
Please check out our
working agreement which describes the steps we can both take to make this a safe and productive place to work. In particular, please note that:

  • I continue to ask people to wash their hands on arrival.

  • The counselling room is regularly aired and has an air filter to keep the air clean.

  • If you want to use any creative resources, I'll invite you to use a skin-friendly antibacterial gel (or to wash your hands again) before and after using resources that other clients may touch.


Here is the Government COVID guidance.


Longer sessions

To allow time for handwashing and other enhanced safety measures, I now offer up to 60 minutes for face to face appointments. I also offer up to 60 minutes for phone and video appointments.


We can work online if needed
If either of us feels physically out of sorts but well enough to meet, rather than potentially bringing germs into a shared space, I ask that we work online instead. This has extra relevance given that COVID symptoms often overlap with those of colds and flu.


Sometimes, if time is really tight or energy levels are low, connecting online is the better option. Let's look after ourselves!
