As an ethical practitioner with a responsibility to my many clients, some of whom are vulnerable, when the pandemic started I had to consider the risks for everyone. As my husband was a key worker, I closed my clinic during much of 2020. I reopened (hopefully for good) in April 2021 and of course I follow comprehensive guidelines via GOV and CNHC (https://www.cnhc.org.uk/covid-19-advice-return-to-work-and-working-safely ).
I have a risk assessment checklist to be completed by clients prior to coming into the clinic before each session (please see below to download a copy). I ask clients to confirm with me (usually by WhatsApp/Text), that they are well, they and their household are free of any symptoms and should not be self Isolating.
