corona virus safety when attending hypnotherapy sessions

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for hypnotherapy clients

If you have been shielding or had any form of condition or treatment in the last twelve months which could compromise your immunity you must gain consent from a medical professional before undertaking face-to-face sessions. If you are not sure if you fall under this provision, please contact me for more information.

Therapy during lockdown

There are two rules which apply to offering face-to-face hypnotherapy during lockdown:

  1. The government guidelines for the lockdown starting on 5th November 2020 include these provisions: 'Support groups that are essential to deliver in person can continue with up to 15 participants where formally organised to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support.'
    I have a personal confirmation from Public Health England that this can be applied to one-to-one therapy if you believe it is essential to see me in person and do not wish to use an online platform like Zoom. 
  2. The CNHC (Regulatory body) have had confirmation that CNHC Registrants in England (of which I am one) meet the definition of  “other…health services, including services relating to mental health” contained in Section 47, Part 3 of the Schedule to The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 and can therefore continue to practise.

Your appointment

Therapy sessions will be, as always, on an appointment basis only.

Appointments will run strictly to time to allow for thorough cleaning between clients.

The waiting room will be out of use, so:
- please arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment and wait outside the building until you are called in
- come on your own if possible. Anyone accompanying you will not be able to enter the building (unless you are a child or a vulnerable adult who needs a chaperone).

Please arrive wearing a face covering (mask or visor), unless you are in an exempt group.

You will be asked to sign a confirmation at each appointment that you have not been diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks, and that you do not have symptoms or need to self-isolate.

In compliance with the advice issued by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, with whom I am registered) your temperature will also be taken on arrival by non-contact means and this will be recorded in your notes.

There is a QR code for those using the NHS test and trace app.

As long as you contact me before your appointment, no penalties for late cancellation will be enforced if you are unable to attend because you have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, if you have been diagnosed, or if you have developed symptoms.

Please use the hand gel or wash your hands on entering the building and before leaving.

I will not be able to provide you with drinks, pens or any other item that might be shared with other clients. Feel free to bring your own. The toilet will still be available if required.

We will maintain a 2m distance wherever possible, and I have a screen placed between us during the therapy session. Please don't be offended if I don't shake hands or offer a hug.

Payment should be made before you attend, by bank transfer or Paypal and I will provide details of how to do this on request.

If you really have to pay by cash or cheque, please put the correct amount in a sealed envelope with your name on the outside. This will be isolated for 24 hours, after which I will send a receipt if one is required.

If I have to self-isolate (for example, if I am contacted via NHS Test and Trace) I will have to cancel face-to-face appointments but will notify you as soon as I can and re-arrange the time and date of your appointment. 

Zoom sessions are available on request, please see this page, or ask for details.

Between sessions

The client chair will be cleaned, and the chair covering will be replaced between appointments.

All surfaces will be cleaned and towels etc will be replaced for each client.
