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.

Living with COVID19 - private practice


On 23rd January 2022 the UK Government published guidance on 'Living with COVID19'.  All legal restrictions will be lifted from 24th January 2022.  I will continue with some of the existing measures to reassure any person visiting my consulting room: 

  • Ventilated consulting room

  • Regular cleaning of high touch items and hand sanitiser available

Whilst there is now no legal requirement for any visitor to self-isolate if they or someone in their household has COVID19, I do recommend if you feel unwell with symptoms that we use an alternative to face-to-face, such as Zoom or a telephone call for that weeks' session.
