I thought it might be helpful to share how Jane Kershaw Counselling is offering appointments at the moment and moving forward.
All first appointments for one-to-one Counselling are free of charge and currently online, using Zoom or WhatsApp. Clients have the option to remain online or have face to face appointments in Sea Mills or Whitchurch.* Clients can choose to make these appointments a mix of online or in person, as and when they need or want.
The wearing of masks is optional and respected. Distancing will be maintained as much as possible and spaces are ventilated.
All Couples counselling is based in Sea Mills and in-person. First appointments for Couples Counselling are free of charge. Again, the wearing of masks is optional and respected. Distancing will be maintained as much as possible and spaces are ventilated.
Reflective Practice and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) appointments are being offered the same as one-to-one Counselling clients, subject to individual contracts.
Feedback from recent and current clients about the mixed online and in-person one-to-one sessions have included.
They felt more in control about how and where their sessions are held.
Found the flexibility of a mixed approach to be more convenient for meeting their needs.
Their online experience to be as helpful as meeting face to face.
The availability of online sessions when needing to self isolate, enables them to continue with regular appointments.
It is planned to continue with this mixed approach to sessions in the current climate and in response to client feedback.
*Appointments in Whitchurch are currently on Mondays only.
