Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated: Mar 18

If you are showing symptoms.

If you are concerned about the spread of infection or are displaying any of the following symptoms -

* A new persistent dry cough and high temperature,

then alternatives to your face to face counselling can be made.


Counselling can be carried out via Skype, WhatsApp Video Call, Messenger Video Call or via the Telephone.

Please contact me if this is something you would like to pursue.


What I will ensure at face to face sessions.

*I will offer hand sanitiser - but it is good practice to bring your own.

*I will ensure the counselling room is cleaned before each new session, this includes all surfaces such as door handles, work surfaces and seating areas,

Sessions will be reduced to 55 minutes (Private practice) to enable me to carry this out.

*I will not offer and physical contact such as Hand shaking or Hugging.

*I will have separate packs of tissues available.

*I will follow any and all other guidelines laid out by the World Health Organisation.


What we may need to do to reduce the spread of infection and ensure continuity to your counselling sessions.

I am personally committed to ensuring the continuity of all counselling sessions in line with all legal and ethical guidelines therefore it may be a case that face to face counselling sessions are temporarily suspended and all Counselling may be carried out via Skype, WhatsApp Video Call, Messenger Video Call or via the Telephone.

I will contact you in due course if this needs to be done.


Below is the advice given by the World Health Organisation, Please read carefully and follow the guidelines laid out for you.


Wash your hands frequently Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why?

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.


Maintain social distancing Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why?

When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.


Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth Why?

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.


Practice respiratory hygiene Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why?

Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.


If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why?

National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
