Coronavirus and your mental health

COVID-19

A message about coming to sessions, or contemplating seeking out sessions, during this critical time. My practice takes this issue with COVID-19 very seriously. It is for this reason that you need to know that if you would like to have a session and are self-isolating, worried about being in a medical environment, and/or are part of the vulnerable populations listed, please be aware that you can opt for a phone or video consult. However, if you wish to come and see me face-to-face I will be regularly wiping down surfaces, especially desks, arm chairs and EFTPOS facilities after every client, and front reception will be asked to do the same.
There is one great piece of advice from Professor Graham Medley, Professor of Infectious Diseases, “act as if you have the virus and behave in a way you would to not pass it on to others”. Your physical safety and your emotional safety is of paramount importance to me during this difficult time to our community.

"Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know it just as well as you. We are all learners, doers and teachers."
