Coronavirus Policy

From the beginning of June 2022, I will be offering a hybrid service of online therapy and face-to-face sessions in the therapy room in my home.

Clients have the option of choosing whichever option they prefer. There are circumstances when clients who choose face-to-face sessions may still need to be seen online. These include:

A member of my household has reduced immunity. Therefore, should client or therapist experience a loss of taste and smell, a raised temperature or any symptoms of a respiratory infection – regardless of the results of a LFT or PCR test – we will need to change to online work until symptoms have subsided.

It is possible that I will be relocating part-time out of Bristol and there may be occasions when I will need to work remotely.

Client’s circumstances.

I will communicate to clients about any need to change to online sessions as soon as possible.

In order to reduce the risk of infection:

I will be asking clients who visit my home to use hand-sanitiser (provided) on entry.

Surfaces will be cleaned between client sessions and the room will be thoroughly aired.

A HEPA air purifier will be in operation.

We will continue to maintain a distance of at least 1 metre throughout the session.

This policy will continue to be updated as necessary
