We can have sessions safely

Social distancing
I’m on the ground floor and once I’ve buzzed you in you can come straight through the spacious entrance halls to my large therapy room where the chairs are currently placed over 2 meters apart.
Increased cleaning/sanitisation
A hand sanitising station is provided at the entrance to the building – please wash your hands thoroughly after entering. There is an increased cleaning schedule in the building with cleaning contractors attending daily to sanitise any high touch surfaces such as doors and handrails. Signage is displayed throughout the building to remind all occupants and visitors to adhere to social distancing rules, thorough hand washing practice, and to indicate when a wash room with multiple facilities is occupied (to allow for use on a one in one out basis).
Video sessions
I have always offered video sessions and have worked successfully with many clients in this way. Research indicates that online counselling can be as effective as face-to-face consultations. Talking to me via Skype is very secure. Skype’s video and chat services use encryption technology, which is one of the most advanced forms of internet security available. Even if a person managed to intercept a message, it would be in a complex code that they would be unable to decipher. If you would like to use this option for some or all of your sessions, as long as you have a safe, quiet, private space and laptop/computer from which to engage then you can easily connect with me on Skype, even if you don’t currently have an account, by using this link (it’s free): https://join.skype.com/invite/bIdwSULX2JYn .

If you have any questions about anything on my website, or would like to arrange a free initial telephone conversation to discuss how we can work together, or if you’re ready to book your first session, please complete and send the contact form below.

I aim to reply within 24-hours regardless of the contact method used. However, your patience is appreciated as this may be delayed in some cases.

Address: 6 Baring Crescent, Exeter EX1 1TL

I am based at Baring House, 6 Baring Crescent, Exeter, EX1 1TL. This fine period building is in a secluded central location, a 10-minute walk from Exeter High Street and Central Station. The entrance to Baring Crescent is opposite Waitrose, we have dedicated car parking space on site, a waiting room and toilets. My room is quiet, private, spacious and elegant. There is limited access for people with disabilities, so if you need to discuss entry to the building we can talk about this prior to your appointment. Alternatively, if you find it more convenient we can arrange to meet online via Skype (see Why Video Sessions?)

I look forward to hearing from you.
