Covid-19 Update

Using the term “post COVID“ suggests that COVID is either on holiday or given up on us mere mortals! At Breakaway SW Counselling some restrictions remain in place in an effort to keep everyone well and to be able to continue to see patients.

These limited restrictions are not intrusive just sensible.

Please don’t hesitate to call on 01822 832082 or 07884076949 for face to face appointments, video or phone. No long waiting lists!

We still have a one-way system in the building.

Patients are asked to message when leaving the car park (2 mins away) so that we can facilitate safe entry, and we are operating on the basis of ‘no appointment, no entry’ until further notice.

Hand sanitiser and gloves are available for patients upon entering the consultation rooms, and patients are welcome to wear face coverings.

Unfortunately, I will not able to meet with Patients who:
  • Have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 7 days
  • Are waiting for a Covid-19 test or results
  • Are themselves, or live with someone who is, experiencing a fever, new or continuous cough, a loss of, or change to, their ability to taste or smell
  • Live with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19
  • Have been notified by NHS Test and Trace in the last 14 days that you are a contact of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19

Please let me know if you’re unable to attend an appointment in person. I am continuing to offer appointments via telephone, FaceTime and WhatsApp.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.

Life Can Be Challenging Sometimes

There are times when life can be challenging, frustrating or just downright chaotic. It’s during these times when seeking the help of a professional therapist can be both useful and empowering.

Kathy has really helped me

I have been in and out of therapy for a very long time and none of them seemed to be right. Then I met Kathy. Kathy has helped me develop confidence in myself and in talking about difficulties I have face in the past and things I still face now. I have always thought that

Thank you Kathy

Seeking help from a counselling service was a first for me. Over the last few years I have been struggling with a personal issue which I was reluctant to face but managed to hide it from my everyday life. The final straw for me was when I was facing redundancy from a job I loved
