In accordance with Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) guidelines to maintain continuity of care for my clients the best way I can during COVID-19, I am now only offering counselling online or via tele-health. This is either using  Zoom conferencing, a good way to counsel people and still be able to share counselling sheets and tools, or counselling by FaceTime for clients with an iPhone who prefer that method.

For your enquiries and concerns, I can be contacted by phone on 0416 665 165 or email me at macarthurrelationships@gmail.com 

November 2020: While I was first hesitant to use online counselling, I have since found Zoom to be a good delivery mechanism for therapy, and body language and tone have not been impacted. Furthermore, some clients are less nervous about coming to counselling, feeling comfortable seeing me in their own home. Some have not had to worry about organising babysitters or having to travel. An added bonus is that you can have a session from anywhere in the country. Also, a couple does not have to be in the same house to have therapy together.

I also want everyone to know that I would never use any means of therapy delivery that did not aid and assist my clients in the best possible way. 

December 2020 Update: At this stage, with the likelihood of a COVID-19 vaccination being available by Feb/March 2021, I will resume face-to-face therapy at that time. Fingers crossed. However, because Zoom has become so popular, I will continue to offer online delivery to those clients who prefer it. It will be nice to offer both options to any potential or ongoing clients. 

Kind Regards,
Karen.
