Whilst I have an office in central Exeter I am working by zoom or Skype only. Since March 2020 my practice has been on line. This has been working really well and feedback from clients has also been positive they have been able to fit sessions into their working day or around child care and family life without the need of allowing travel time. I have successfully done sex therapy, relationship counselling, emdr, general counselling as well as supervision. Any forms or information sheets have been emailed. I have taken the decision to keep my practice on line except for supervising students who need face to face for the time being.
