Counselling and Covid-19

Here at the Bridge Counselling Service we take counselling and Covid-19 very seriously.

Since re-opening for face to face sessions, we have been following the Government’s guidance on reducing the risk of transmitting Covid-19.

We undertake regular risk assessments and the measures which have been put in place are detailed in the risk assessment below. Please check back regularly for updates.

We want to be able to offer a counselling and Covid-19 safe space and believe the measures we have taken minimise the risk to you and us.

If you’re extremely vulnerable or feel in any way anxious about having face to face sessions, you can arrange to have online or telephone counselling. You can change back to face to face sessions at any time.

This flexibility means we can continue to support you in a way which feels comfortable during the Covid-19 pandemic.
