January 2022 Update - Reiki and Hypnotherapy are back!

Updated: Feb 15

Now that restrictions are easing again, I am delighted to offer the full complement of my therapies alongside face to face, individual counselling. Counselling is at the heart of all the work that I do but incorporating other therapies and skills helps facilitate healing on different levels and they are part of a treatment plan. As I still need to manage risk, all clients will still need to be able to comply to my COVID-19 policy and my terms and conditions.

Face to Face Sessions for both Individual and Couple Counselling

I am accepting new and returning clients who are committing to having a minimum of 6 regular sessions of individual therapy or couples counselling. This means that my sessions are only taken up by regular clients which minimises the risk of COVID-19 to both myself and others.

How am I keeping you safe?

I continue to be responsible for protecting myself and others from the risk of COVID-19 as restrictions have eased at the moment yet still need to make sure that anyone entering my premises is at a low risk of being infected with COVID-19 or infecting others as we continue to get back to normality.

Any new and returning clients will still need to read and read and agree to the my terms and conditions and my COVID-19 Screening Policy before attending a session.

Will I need to wear a face mask?

No, as it is no longer mandatory. I will still take your temperature as you enter and ask you to use the hand sanitiser.

Cleaning and sanitising

Whilst I cannot eliminate the risk of COVID-19 completely, I have done everything that is reasonably possible to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to my clients, myself and others.

There is hand sanitiser available for you and tissues in a wipeable box.

A glass of lemon water can be provided for you but If you prefer you can bring your own water.

All surfaces in my room are disinfected between each session and the room will have time to be aired between clients.

There is a toilet facility with plenty of hand wash and paper hand towels which can be disposed of in the pedal bin. The toilet and handbasin will be sanitised after each use.

Would you prefer to work Online?

Like most of us I had to adjust to working online during the first lockdown and this has taught me how successfully we can still form very good therapeutic relationships and achieve good outcomes with online counselling and psychotherapy.

I will continue to offering online counselling sessions to new and existing 1:1 clients. Some of my clients like to mix and match online sessions with face to face sessions which works really well.

Online therapy offers the advantage of being able to work with clients who are out of the Swindon area and/or need to juggle childcare and work.

It is easy to set up and effective. It is beneficial if clients are on a tight timetable or if you are having to self isolate.

You can experience all of the benefits of regular face to face sessions from the safety and comfort of your own home. Reiki and Hypnotherapy are only available during face to face sessions.

How do I Pay for my Session?

Face to face sessions: Please make sure that payment is transferred before the session starts. Alternatively, I can accept card payment at the start of the session (+£1 ). Cash is also accepted.

Online sessions: Please make sure that payment is transferred before the session starts. Alternatively, I can accept card payment on the telephone at the start of the session (+£1).

How do I agree to the COVID-19 Policy?

Whether you are a new client or an existing client, you will need to make sure that you have read and agreed to the COVID-19 Screening Policy before you arrive for your session. You can access it from the front page of my website at the bottom under "FOR CLIENTS" heading - click on "TERMS AND CONDITIONS". Once you land on my "Terms and Conditions" page you can read them and the COVID-19 policy underneath. Once you agree you can hit "REGISTER NOW" and fill out the short registration form. Once you submit the form you are agreeing to the policy.

Please remember that you do have a responsibility to inform me if your situation changes in regard to the policy and if we decide we are at risk and shouldn't continue with our face to face session, we will still be able to proceed online or over the phone instead.

If you are interested in face to face or on-line therapy please fill out the enquiry form on the front page of my website or alternatively, you can contact me by phone or text on 07957 970784.

Stay safe! Tina
