COVID-19 / Coronavirus

It is with great regret that for the short term I will not be providing appointments for any hands-on therapies.

I am following the advice and guidance given by my insurers, professional and regulatory bodies as well as the current Government advice regarding social distancing.

I am happy to provide sessions of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Bach Flower Remedy consultations via FaceTime/Skype/WhatsApp video calls. Bach remedies can be collected from my porch (preferred) or posted out to you. Payment can be made by bank transfer or PayPal.

If you have booked onto a Reiki course I will contact you nearer the time of the course to discuss the current COVID-19 situation and whether the course can run. If I am unable to run the course I am happy to either transfer your deposit to an alternative course or return it, whichever you prefer.

I have spent over 20 years building up a very loyal client base and it greatly saddens me that I can’t continue to treat you at the moment. I thank you for your support and friendship and hope that we can soon recommence your treatments.

As soon as I receive confirmation that I can resume appointments, I will update this message.

In the meantime, I wish you, your families and friends all the very best in these difficult and uncertain times; feel free to stay in touch by email, text or phone.

Stay safe, healthy, and cheerful.... and see you soon!

In the meantime, here is some information that I hope will prove useful to you:

How To Protect Yourself and Your Family and Friends

There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
  • washing your hands more often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitiser when you get home or into work, when you blow your nose, sneeze or cough, eat or handle food
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid close contact with people who have symptoms
  • cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands
  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home

Hand gels and antibacterial wipes are useful to keep with you, in your handbag, car, etc., if you do not have immediate access to hand washing facilities, but are proven not to be as effective as handwashing with soap and water.

Useful Tips To Reduce Contamination

  • use disposable gloves or a tissue when handling petrol pumps to fill up your car
  • use a clean tissue to open and close doors on public buildings, public toilets, etc., then bin immediately
  • use antibac wipes to santise your steering wheel, door handles, window controls after you have visited public places, shops, etc.
  • use antibac wipes to sanitise shopping trolley and basket handles before you use them
  • clean/wash your hands as soon as possible after you have been shopping, used public transport, etc.

What should you do if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 / Coronavirus?

  • the same guidance applies to the general population and those at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 / Coronavirus
  • if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature and/or new and continuous cough), self-isolate at home for 7 days
  • new evidence is emerging that loss of taste and smell up to seven days before developing other symptoms is a sign of the virus being present
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms, this will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious
  • do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • you do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home
  • testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home

Getting Assistance With Foods and Medicines If You Are Reducing Social Contacts

  • ask family, friends and neighbours to support you and use online services
  • if this is not possible, then the public sector, business, charities, and the general public are gearing up to help those advised to stay at home
  • it is important to speak to others and ask them to help you to make arrangements for the delivery of food, medicines and essential services and supplies, and look after your physical and mental health and wellbeing

If you receive support from health and social care organisations, for example, if you have care provided for you through the local authority or health care system, this will continue as normal.
Your health or social care provider will be asked to take additional precautions to make sure that you are protected.

What Should You Do If You Have Hospital and GP Appointments During This Period?

  • the advice is for everyone to access medical assistance remotely, wherever possible
  • if you have a scheduled hospital or other medical appointment during this period, talk to your GP or clinician to ensure you continue to receive the care you need and consider whether appointments can be postponed

Looking After Your Mental Wellbeing During Social Distancing

Understandably, you may find that social distancing can be boring or frustrating. You may find your mood and feelings are affected and you may feel low, worried or have problems sleeping and you might miss being outside with other people.

At times like these, it can be easy to fall into unhealthy patterns of behaviour which in turn can make you feel worse. There are simple things you can do that may help, to stay mentally and physically active during this time such as:
  • look for ideas of exercises you can do at home on the NHS website
  • download the free Headspace App for guided meditations you can do to help stay calm and grounded
  • spend time doing things you enjoy, this might include reading, cooking, other indoor hobbies or listening to the radio or watching TV programmes
  • try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water and try to avoid smoking, alcohol and drugs
  • keep your windows open to let in fresh air, get some natural sunlight if you can, or get outside into the garden
  • go for a walk or exercise outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others
  • text or email me!

Stay safe and well....and see you on the flip side!
