As you will be aware, a result of the government advice regarding the delay of the spread of infection by the Covid 19 virus, is that all those in vulnerable groups are now asked to avoid face to face contact, as much as possible, until otherwise advised. We understand that this could last for a period of about fourteen weeks.

In the public interest, and for the protection of each of us, we are working out how best to comply with this advice, while, at the same time continuing to provide our therapy work.  We know that at this time of uncertainty and world-wide anxiety it is even more important to maintain continuity in a way that is helpful until we can work face to face again.

We are suggesting that we work over the telephone on numbers agreed between client and counsellor, or by use of a secure online communication.  We are suggesting Zoom to all our supervisors and trainees.  There is a concern that Skype is less secure. We have had confirmation from most of the training colleges that this work will be eligible for inclusion in the clinical placement hours. 

We hope this is helpful and that ‘normal service will be resumed as soon as possible’!

With our very best wishes

The Counsellors’ Collective Team
