Please note that the current guidelines from the Chief Medical Officer of Victoria state that patients may only attend in person in an emergency
During these difficult times, our aim to continue to provide therapy for those who need it for as long as possible.
Of course people are very worried and we aim to help support them. As COVID-19 spreads, more and more people will have to go into isolation, this in turn increases risk of depression, especially for those who live alone. Please do not hesitate in contacting us if you feel your mood changing. Refer to our pages on depression and anxiety to help identify whether you could do with support.
For clients who are in any way sick, please do not attend the practice in person. We can provide you with video or phone sessions. Please contact our reception to make arrangements on 1300 73 72 51.
For those attending the practice, rest assured, we are doing as much as we can to reduce the chances of spreading the virus, such as; wiping down chairs and surfaces with anti bacterial cleaners regularly and if any staff show signs of sickness, they will not be coming into work. We are in a good position that generally, therapy happens with a greater distance than 2 metres between the client and the practitioner so if everyone is mindful of good hygiene the chances of spreading the illness are quite low.
If your Psychologists has to go into home quarantine, they will still be able to provide therapy via video or phone. You will be notified in advance of your appointment. Click here for more information about Telehealth.
If your Psychologist becomes sick, we will let you know as soon as possible and you will be offered an alternative Psychologist if you need ongoing treatment.
When you attend the practice, we ask that you:
Use the hand sanitiser on arrival,
If you need to cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow or into a tissue and dispose of it immediately,
Be mindful to touch as few things as possible.
