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 firstname.lastname@example.org
June 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 especially been impacted. Furthermore, some clients are less nervous about going to counselling now, feeling comfortable seeing me in their own home, some have not had to worry about organising babysitters. Not having to travel has been an added bonus, you can have a session from anywhere in the country. Also, a couple do not have to be in the same house to have therapy together.
Take care. Be kind to yourself and others.
