These are uncertain times for everyone, but particularly difficult for those experiencing challenging life situations, psychological or relational problems. So we are especially pleased to announce that some face to face therapy sessions are again available at Asana Health from Monday 18th May, for anyone who:
- Is not self-isolating
- Is not feeling unwell
- Is not having Covid19 symptoms – high temperature; persistent cough; loss of sense of taste or smell
- Has not been in contact with anyone suspected of having coronavirus in the last 14 days
- Is not considered clinically vulnerable and in need of shielding
The government advice is that mental health services are actually exempt from closure, as long as they follow relevant social distancing guidance. After careful assessment of our premises and business operation and due adherence to the latest government guidance, we have drawn up an operational plan that will enable our therapists to safely use the facilities at Asana Health to see their clients, if they wish.
Whilst we believe that traditional face to face counselling is always preferable and definitely more effective, online technologies have enabled some of our therapists to offer their clients therapy in this format over recent weeks. Indeed, several therapists are choosing to continue with online working where their own personal circumstances dictate that this is their safest method, or only available option, of delivering therapy for the time being. Each therapist’s profile carries information about their current mode of working. Please contact your chosen therapist directly to discuss your needs and arrange appointments.
Every therapist will have a copy of Asana’s Operational Plan and Hygiene Procedures that will ensure your visit to Asana Health will be well managed and take every precaution to keep both our clients and therapists safe.
