Can you access counselling right now?

Now we are in 2021, the uncertainty continues as we move into further Coronavirus restrictions. If you need help with something in your life right now, you can still receive counselling and psychotherapy.

Therapists are moving more and more to remote working – that is, holding sessions by remote means (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp etc), making use of the wonderful technology available. In my experience, these methods of working are proving very successful and I, like many therapists in Lancaster, will be providing more remote services in the future.

However, I recognise that many people, for all sorts of reasons, cannot attend counselling by remote means and need to come to a consulting room.

Now Offering Counselling by Video and Phone during Coronavirus Uncertainty

Well Life Counselling is now offering counselling by Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp and Facetime, including a FREE 30 minute initial consultation, to help people access counselling during the uncertainty brought about by Coronavirus. Key workers are being offered significant reductions in the cost of counselling during lockdown. Don’t let Coronavirus keep you from the counselling you feel you need – call me today to discuss your requirements as help really is only a phone call away. There’s no obligation and no hassle. I look forward to hearing from you.

Coronavirus Response

On Thursday 12 March 2020 the UK government announced that we are moving out of the contain phase and into the delay phase in response to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. It set out what we should be doing in response to these guidelines and it is important that my clients and prospective clients are aware of what Well Life Counselling is doing in line with the latest guidance.

All clients have been made aware of Well Life Counselling’s intention to abide by the latest UK government guidelines on Coronavirus and are also aware of what to do in the event that they experience any symptoms (a high temperature (37.8 degrees and above) or a new continuous cough) and the actions we will take in relation to ongoing therapy. All necessary measures are being taken to ensure that therapy can continue within the guidelines set out by the government and any need to self-isolate for a period of 7 days from the point of displaying mild symptoms.

If you are someone considering coming to Well Life Counselling for help, you can be assured that your safety and wellbeing will be taken very seriously and all precautions will be taken in line with the latest government guidance.
