Guidelines for face to face sessions during Covid-19

With new government guidelines coming into effect from the 4th July 2020 I will be recommencing face to face sessions, if you elect to come for a face to face session I ask that you adhere to the following;

  • Please only arrive for your appointment at the allotted time – there will be no space for waiting inside the building.

 

  • Please do not attend an appointment if you or anyone you have had contact with has had symptoms of Covid-19 (i.e. persistent cough, fever, loss of taste and smell, difficulty breathing etc.) in the last 14 days.

 

  • Please attend your appointment on your own, if you need someone to attend with you please discuss with me as soon as possible.

 

  • On arrival press the buzzer (cleaned between clients) and wait to be buzzed up.

 

  • On coming up stairs I will have already opened the counselling room door and will be standing out of the way in the kitchen.  Please walk straight into the counselling room and have a seat under the window.  When it is time to leave the I will open the door and again walk to the kitchen while you exit the building.

 

  • All door handles/buzzers and surfaces will be cleaned in-between clients.

 

  • Chairs will be sprayed with disinfectant between clients

 

  • There will be hand sanitiser available, please use this as frequently as you feel you need to

 

  • Face masks are available, please ask if you would like one and want me to wear one also. 

 

  • Tissues are available but please take them away with you rather than using the bin in the counselling room.

 

  • If you need to use the toilet please ensure you wash your hands thoroughly afterwards and use a paper towel to dry them.

 

  • Unfortunately, I will not be able to offer drinks to you so please bring one if you feel you will need it. 

 

  • If the government/BACP/insurance guidance changes at anytime your sessions may have to change to telephone/online
