Terry Shevlin, MSc Counselling, Certified Psychotherapist, Senior accred BACP
Covid 19 - Corona virus and Newday's response.
To follow Government guidelines and practice ethically I have moved all my work to 'on line' in a variety of modes- Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, What's App etc.
I will not be seeing any people 'face to face' until this is deemed appropriate by Government medical advice.
Stress and/or low moods can obviously be triggered by these unprecedented times, that is understandable .....but attending to these symptoms can help with our immune system as we are a combination of mind / body/ spirit. So therapy can be very important for some people.
I AM OFFERING PRIORITY AND CONCESSIONARY APPOINTMENTS TO 'FRONT LINE' NHS WORKERS - DOCTORS, NURSES, SUPPORT STAFF WHO ARE IMMERSED IN THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS AND EMOTIONS OF THIS CRISIS TO HELP THEM WITH TRAUMA RESILIENCE.
