I hope you and your loved ones have managed successfully though this challenging time. With Level 4 lock down about to be introduced by the government, I want to advise you that we will be opening Lighthouse Therapy Centre for face to face counselling again. This will take place on selected days of the week depending on demand from clients. Please note that should you wish to attend face to face counselling, the strict precautions recommended by the government at this time will need to be adhered to, namely the compulsory wearing of face masks at all times, and the maintenance of social distance. Following the Health Professions Counsel of South Africa (HPCSA) guidelines, we will also be introducing certain procedures at the practice to reduce the possibility of viral transmission such as seeing clients at 15 minute intervals, waiting in your car rather than in reception whilst the rooms are prepared for each session, using the hand sanitizer spray provided on arrival and departure, and limited use of the bathroom facilities.
In order to reduce as much of the transactional procedures around payments, we would like our clients to continue making advance payments to secure a session. Clients will still have the option of conducting their sessions remotely via Zoom, which has been working very effectively in stage 5 lock down, at R700.00 per one hour session, or see me face to face at the practice at R900.00 per hour. Should you require after hour sessions, after 5pm weekdays or on Saturday mornings, whether remotely or face to face, these will be R900.00 and R1000.00 respectively. Payments should please be made to B Blem at FNB, 62012344214, and a proof of payment sent to 0722033203 with your surname and contact number. I will then personally be in touch with you to ensure we meet within the following five working days.
Before a prearranged session, should you experience any of the classic symptoms of Covid-19 such as shortness of breath, fever and a dry cough, or in any way feel physically unwell, please advise us immediately and do not attend the session. Apart from exceptional circumstances, we would still require 24 hours’ notice for cancellations.
Please be assured that Annie and myself will work tirelessly to ensure your health and safety, whilst attending to your more immediate psychological needs in the most professional manner. Please do not hesitate to contact me should your require any further information.
