At the moment, because of COVID 19, all my sessions are on line. This enables you to have all the benefits of counselling from the comfort of your own home. Not having to travel has advantages but you do need to make sure that you are able to speak freely. You will also need to plan for protected time when you won’t be disturbed or are trying to balance other responsibilities.
As restrictions are lifted and it becomes safe to do so, we could meet outdoors provided that we maintain social distancing. The area we will work in is a large Paddock which has a small wooded area of native trees at one end. The Paddock is open to the public, however there are only occasional visitors so we are unlikely to be disturbed. If someone wanders into view we will stop counselling. We will resume again once they are out of ear shot.
Any walking that we might do together either in this location or other locations are risk assessed and I will give advice where necessary on how to manage these risks. On some occasions I may need to stop a session if I feel that weather or ground conditions are not suitable for us to continue outside.
When it becomes safe to do so, we could work indoors. The room I use is attractive, clean and has lots of unique character. It is well ventilated and there is plenty of room for social distancing.
