Practice OPEN for in person sessions and also by phone + Skype
A little bit about me: I walk the talk, meaning: I live a healthy life-style. My outlook on life is holistic caring for my body mind and spirit. And I encourage you to do the same.
I am happy to continue our sessions in person or if you prefer also via Skype.
Please call me on: 01727-750088 or
email me on: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a session to take place
in face-to-face or via Skype.
My practice is open for anyone, vaccinated or not vaccinated. Your personal choices matter here!
If you are unable to find a place to yourself where you can’t be overheard by others, you might consider e.g. a garage, garden-shed, or your car – an option others have taken in the past.
If you can’t think of ways to make it work, call me and we can discuss your options and best way forward.
If you can't attend the session in person, please make sure that you are in a room where you can not be overheard or disturbed by others. Reason for this: to create an environment of confidentiality for you to feel safe and comfortable to speak with me about anything in your session much the same way as you do when we meet face-to-face.
To emulate the in-person experience you may find it helpful not watch the TV or computer in the background. This is not a chit chat, this is your therapeutic session. In turn, I will be sitting in the consulting room on the same place as always.
Should you have booked a couple-/joint-session and you are at different places, we can have a conference Skype call. I have good experiences with others of this option.
Throughout my therapeutic work of over 25 years, I have followed common sense guidelines for hygiene, safety, respect and well-being.
Currently I’ve added: one-use plant-based recyclable cups, mostly natural hand-sanitizer at the entrance and in the consulting room.
Please inform yourself and follow responsible guidelines and common sense - and make informed choices.
DO I NEED A TEST TO BE SEEN BY YOU?
It is up to you if you feel safer with a test, or if you find it distressing to be continuously testing without experiencing symptoms. I won't be checking any certificates, or health passes.
Our therapeutic relationship is based on mutual trust. As such I trust you that you take responsibility for yourself - and others - and that if you acutely suffer from any easily transmissible disease, have fleas or head lice, etc, that you won't attend in person but rather on Skype, . The same applies to myself.
DO I NEED TO WEAR A MASK?
Again it is up to you, how you feel best. Part of therapy and especially holistic humanistic therapy as I practice it, is that I rely in the sessions on your words, on what you don't say, as well as your facial expressions. Hence I ask you to book a Skype session should you wish to wear a mask or should wish me to wear one.
DO I HAVE TO BE VACCINATED TO ATTEND SESSIONS IN PERSON?
No. I believe that if we as a society want to improve our well-being and connections with each other, its best to minimise discrimination. Thus I welcome you whatever your health choices are, whatever the colour of your skin, sexual orientation, your background, career, goals, purpose, religion, spirituality, philosophy of life, ...
As always: if you are unable to be available for your booked session, let me know as soon as you can and with a MINIMUM of 72 hours notice – i.e. 3 days - otherwise the full fee is payable.
Please bear in mind if you need to change your appointment due to unforeseen circumstances, I always endeavour – especially in the current global situation - to offer you an alternative for the same week at no additional cost. However please be aware that at times I have no alternative availability.
Thank you, for your understanding.
In the hopefully unlikely event that you are admitted to A&E, I will not charge you for the missed session and we continue the sessions when you are out of hospital.
My best wishes for your speedy recovery.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
Look after your overall well-being - physical health, psychological well-being and with a mindful approach to life.
