Guidelines for Face to Face Engagement
Please attend your arranged appointment only if you have no symptoms of COVID-19 and are not self –isolating or awaiting a COVID-19 test result.
Please follow guidelines regarding hand hygiene, cough etiquette and social distancing.
Tissues are available as usual but if used please have a small plastic bag with you for safe disposal of them.
Please wear a face covering as you enter the building and until you are inside the counselling room.
Cleaning and maintenance has been stepped up to include the sanitising of surfaces, handles and doors following every use.
It will be necessary to bring your own drinking water during the current restrictions.
Counselling / Psychotherapy is deemed an essential service and validation of your attendance can be provided on request.
In addition to the instances in which confidentially may be broken I’m obliged to share information with the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET). This would address contact details only for the purpose of tracing. In the event that I or a close contact contracts COVID-19 a contact tracer may contact you. Contact tracing is confidential.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your cooperation.
