From the beginning of August, we will begin to re-open our counselling rooms for face to face counselling sessions. This will happen gradually, with just a few of our counsellors offering a small number of sessions at first.
Since lockdown began and throughout the last few months, we have delivered counselling remotely, either by video or telephone. This has worked well for most of our clients and we have come to see the benefits and flexibility of remote ways of working. However in recent weeks we’ve seen a rise in enquiries from people wanting face to face sessions. As the lockdown restrictions have been eased, more people are feeling ready to resume “in person” activities. Some people find it difficult to speak freely from their home as it’s tricky to find a quiet and confidential space. Others don’t feel comfortable speaking about personal issues online or may be unsure about using the technology. Therefore it now feels important to begin offering face to face sessions again.
Like most businesses, we have put a lot of thought into how we can start to work safely with clients in person once again. We have consulted guidelines from the government and from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. We have conducted a risk assessment and developed health and safety procedures to ensure any risk is minimised. We value the chance to meet face to face and are looking forward to welcoming clients back to our counselling rooms.

Due to limited counsellor availability we currently have a short waiting list for these sessions. Please contact us on 07504492224 or email@example.com to add your contact details to the list.
