Over the course of 2020-21 schools had 3 periods of remote learning due to the COVID19 pandemic.  This effected the provision of my counselling services which moved to an on-line service.  Support & signposting below.

COVID19 safe private practice


On 14th July 2021 the UK Government published guidance on working safely for close contact services.  Here are the steps taken to reassure any person visiting my consulting room of my COVID safe procedures:

  • Risk assessment completed

  • Ventilated consulting room

  • Option to Check-in via a QR code for NHS Test & Trace

  • Regular cleaning of high touch areas and hand sanitiser available

Notice for any visitor to self-isolate if they or someone in their household has a persistent cough, a high temperature or has lost their sense of taste or smell. They must also self-isolate if they or a close contact has had a positive COVID-19 result, or if they have been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace


These steps are reviewed regularly to ensure safety measures remain current.
