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.
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
