Physical (Social) Distancing
For appointments at the studio face-to-face in person: physical distancing guidelines, hygiene standards and 4m sq/ person are in place to help assist with clients health and safety. As such there is a minimum of 1 hour between clients to allow for cleaning of the studio. Only 3 people can be in a counselling room at one time and up to 10 in the group room.
~ We continue to offer appointments face to face, in person at the studio*.
~ You DO NOT need a mental health care plan or to visit your GP to make an appointment
* May I respectfully ask however if you have recently returned from overseas, and as of 2 July 2020 Victoria and declared other 'hot spots' by the Queensland Government and suspect you have been in contact with a known person with Covid-19 (community transmission) OR are feeling unwell in anyway, that you stay at home and re-schedule your appointment by emailing us, for an online E-counselling session instead.
