The government will look to continue easing limits on businesses as part of Step 3 of its roadmap out of lockdown, published in March this year no earlier than 17 May. As a therapist working in close proximity to clients from all walks of life, in an indoor setting, and where the wearing of face masks is prohibitive to the delivery of effective face-to-face counselling, I have chosen to delay my offer of in-person sessions until this date at the earliest.
I then intend to offer a limited number of sessions to those clients who express a desire to meet in-person, whilst continuing with a majority of sessions online until such time as we are given clear indication that the pandemic is under control. These sessions will command a higher fee than online, and for a minimum of six sessions @ £500 pre-payable in advance, following assessment.
About Virtual Sessions
I have been successfully running online counselling, relationship therapy & coaching sessions with individuals and couples across the UK and overseas (Africa; Asia; Australia; Europe & USA) since 2012. Virtual counselling & therapy is also commonly, and currently, offered by many organisations including the NHS.
Many clients who have used this service report that there is little if any notable difference between this and face-to-face in-person sessions.There can be some limitations such as call disruption, but this is typically limited and manageable.
Skype & Zoom calls are encrypted to protect users from eavesdropping. However, it is every clients' responsibility to manage their own privacy and level of disclosure when meeting online / by phone.
