Covid Measures in place for face to face counselling sessions

July 2021
 

My responsibility as your counsellor:

I will be regular rapid lateral flow test across the week based on levels of face-to-face work.

If I am displaying any Covid symptoms I will be in contact and if able to, will offer to provide your session via Zoom or telephone instead.

I have received all the UK vaccines including the booster.

If I need to cancel a session because of Covid no fee will be due.

Measures in place in Counselling space:

Wearing a face mask to enter and exit the room is optional. Disposable masks are available on request and the wearing of a mask in your session is your own choice.

Please let me know if you would prefer that I wore a mask.

Hand sanitiser will be provided on entry/exit of the counselling room, and I invite you to make use of this. Hand washing facilities are also available. 

I allow a 2-metre gap between seating.

Appropriate cleaning of equipment and surfaces will be undertaken at regular intervals.

I ensure there is a minimum of a 30-minute gap to allow ventilation between sessions.

Client responsibility:

If you are displaying any symptoms (raised temperature, change to taste or smell, a persistent cough or feel generally unwell) please do not attend your face-to-face session and inform me as soon as possible.

If you have travelled abroad within the last 14 days, please let me know.

If you have come into contact with, or you have tested positive for Covid-19 please follow Government guidance.

Zoom/telephone sessions will remain available as an alternative if you are unable to attend face to face.

Please note that cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice will incur the full session fee.

Please bring with you your own drink and tissues.
