Psychotherapy Support During the COVID-19 Restrictions

The global response to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in increasingly severe restrictions on the citizen’s rights to freely move, speak freely and travel.  In the UK, at the highest level of restriction, we have been told by government not to leave our homes unless absolutely necessary, leaving millions of people disconnected from friends, family, employment, and support services they would normally attend.  Our social and civil liberties were already under daily attack from governments keen to control more and more of our lives, and this has only worsened under a Corona virus narrative that has brought unprecedented levels of control and devastation to small businesses, local communities, and individuals, as the corporations, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos continue to thrive. The experience of social isolation on ordinary people can begin to impact upon us as varying and confusing levels of ‘lockdown’ continues, adding an additional burden upon those who may already be struggling with existing problems.

Scotland: you can still attend mental health related appointments in-person

In Scotland The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 allows for citizens to physically attend services referred to in paragraph 37 or 38 of schedule 1 i.e. “including services relating to mental health” [The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 Section 8(5)c, Schedule 1, Part 3, 37].  This means that if you are physically healthy and not exhibiting symptoms of cold, flu or a cough, that you are permitted to travel to psychotherapy appointments and other mental health related services.  Those services should still be implementing physical distancing measures within their premises, as well as relevant hygiene and decontamination practices e.g. disinfecting door handles and other surfaces.

Alternatives to Face-to-Face Appointments

There is absolutely no reason to stop or interrupt your existing psychotherapy or personal development work during the Corona Virus restrictions.  Wherever you live in the world, even if you remain concerned about infection, patients can still be assessed or continue psychotherapy work and counselling just as effectively via SKYPE from the safety of their own homes.  See my website for further details and ways to reduce costs for those most in need of support.
