Due to new regulations regarding Covid-19, I am now offering online and telephone sessions. However, from 13th May 2020, the updated British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) recommendations have set out clear guidance on clinical work within the consulting room.
Following the BPC guidance, I am now able to offer face to face consultations following a telephone risk assessment as safety is paramount. We would need to discuss known risk factors, pre-existing health conditions, age factors and how to access face to face therapy as safely as possible.
An ethical decision making process will be on an individual case by case basis regarding the provision of face to face therapy sessions.
Although masks are not currently a requirement, should you wish to wear a mask in the session, that is entirely appropriate, and will depend on your personal circumstances. If the wearing of masks becomes compulsory, individuals would need to provide their own face masks.
For more information please read the PDF file below published by the BPC.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
