COVID-19 Support

I am now offering outdoor counselling sessions in line with safe distancing measures. There are several walks near my practice where we can safely and confidentially walk and talk.
I also offer an outdoor telephone counselling session. This can take place on your daily walk, in your garden or outside space. This can be a ‘face-time’ call or a traditional telephone call.

We are all affected by the Covid-19 virus, whether that’s dealing with the day to day restrictions, managing relationships, work disruptions, financial difficulties, concerns for the health of loved ones or concerns for your future. Perhaps for you there are some additional difficulties that are overwhelming. Talking things through might help you find ways to manage your situation better.

The safe confidential space near my practice allows us to sit overlooking a wood, an open field and wonderful views down the valley. This can often help us get perspective on our current situation. We will walk to this space and sit on my chairs or you can bring your own.There is one stile to negotiate.

A telephone counselling session can take place during your daily exercise, on a walk, in your garden or outdoor space. You will need to be on your own, have access to a mobile phone and be able to create an hour’s space in your day. I will contact you and I will either be on one of my regular walks or in my garden space. It is a confidential safe space and all the usual agreements around client confidentiality are maintained.

An online counselling session is an hour long session through the safe online platform Zoom. You will need access to a laptop, PC or smart phone and to have a quiet safe space within your home.

If you would like to find out more about these sessions, please either email me or give me a ring to find out whether this approach is right for you. Contact me here
