We are living in uncertain times to say the least. The Corona virus has plunged the world into a unique situation of unprecedented proportions.
As a psychotherapist I consider my profession as one of key importance and perhaps one of the few places that can provide a place of stability, predictability and support at this difficult time.
As an experienced specialist in the field of psychology and mental health, I would never expose my clients to any risk which is why I currently conduct most sessions on Skype, FaceTime or on the phone. Yet, I am acutely aware of the need to offer the appropriate support to suit each individual's need, which is why I have recently begun to see a few number of clients face-to-face as the lockdown has eased. Precautions are taken to control risk with surfaces being disinfected between sessions and sufficient time provided between clients to ensure social distancing.
