Navigating Therapy during COVID-19

Your Psych Centre provides accessible psychological services, in an environment where client safety is paramount.

This clinic follows all current government issued Health Directives as well as implementing a COVID-19 Policy and Procedure framework. This framework helps to ensure our continued service delivery with as minimal disruption as possible.

We thank all of our clients and their families for their ongoing support in an ever-changing environment!

Some of the ways we have adapted our work to keep you safe:

Psychological services will continue to be provided to all individuals throughout the pandemic period.

Telehealth therapy is the safest form of therapy to reduce the likelihood of infection by COVID-19. Telehealth will continue to be available to all our clients and families.

Adults and young people over the age of 16 who wish to visit onsite are required to be fully vaccinated and show proof of this upon check-in.

Everyone working on our premises has been fully vaccinated and will not attend the clinic if unwell for any reason. 

If a COVID directive prevents you or your therapist from attending the practice, your face to face appointment will not be cancelled but will automatically be converted to a Telehealth appointment (phone or video appointment). 

Additional control measures will be implemented at our practice to improve ventilation and ensure the building is clean and sanitised, and as safe as possible for everyone at all times. 

In the event of a possible or confirmed case attending our practice we will support public health officials with contact tracing and follow their advice. 

More detailed information can be read in our 2022 COVID-19 Policy and Procedure documentation.

WHEN YOU'RE UNWELL

What to do if you’re unwell

It is important you look after your health and seek medical advice if you experience any of the known COVID-19 symptoms.

If your symptoms are mild, we encourage you to still attend your psychology session  – as your mental health is equally as important! –  and your session will be delivered via Telehealth.

Symptoms

Most common symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Loss of taste or smell
Less common symptoms:
  • Headache
  • Aches and pains
  • Diarrhoea
  • Rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
  • Red or irritated eyes

Our understanding of COVID-19 (and it’s variants) symptoms is always changing. It is always best to get tested if you’re concerned.
