North Dublin Counselling

Covid-19


In line with HSE, Public Health & the IACP Covid-19-Return-to-work-guidelines,(https://iacp.ie/Covid19-Return-to-work-Guidelines-for-Members)  I have taken the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of clients who are attending for face-to-face counselling. 


In line with Department of Health guidelines, if contact tracing is requested by the relevant Health authorities, your contact information will be disclosed for contact tracing purposes only.


Due to the dynamic nature of the Covid-19 times we are living in, ongoing risk assessments for face-to-face counselling will take place. 

What this means is that :

  1. in the event you are feeling unwell, 
  2. are waiting for or have completed a Covid-19 test and are awaiting results  
  3. or are self-isolating, 

I would ask that you let me know at least 24 hours in advance of any scheduled counselling appointment and do not attend the Practice in Portmarnock. Online/Skype sessions can be facilitated. . 


Similarly, I will notify you in advance of any scheduled appointments if I am unable to conduct face-to-face sessions. 

Hygiene and health protocols in-between sessions will be strictly adhered to.


When  you attend - please feel free to bring your own small bottle of water if required . 


If you wish to wear a face mask, please do so. If so, you must keep it in place until after you have left the building and it is safely disposed of. 


Hand sanatizer is provided on entering and leaving the room. 


Appointments will start and end as scheduled, to ensure the appropriate cleaning of counselling room in-between sessions can take place. 


To ensure social distancing is maintained, there will be no waiting outside the room.


Online payment is preferred however cash payment is accepted.


I have given careful consideration to ensure my safety and welfare and those of my clients, is in line with Public Health guidelines and recommendations and will review this on an ongoing basis. If you have any questions on any of the above, or would like to discuss further, please do so .
