our response 

During this time of uncertainty, Bridge Counselling wishes to continue reaching out to those who need our support. At the same time, we are mindful of safety both to our clients and counsellors.

For the time being, we will continue to offer online counselling via Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp Video or similar for those who have the technology and the privacy at home to use them. We acknowledge online counselling can have limitations and may not be appropriate for all circumstances.

A Covid-19 risk assessment and cleaning procedures are in place for using Bromham Baptist Church premises provided that:
  • the current government restrictions allow us to do so
  • the counsellor is able to work face to face without putting themselves at significant risk and
  • the client does not have any significant health issues which may put them at greater risk

This can be discussed at the initial interview and it is possible that circumstances may change, outside of our control, during the period of counselling.

During this time, the best form of contact is by email – as the Coordinator may only pick up phone messages and post on a weekly basis.
