CLEAR, COVID-19 and Lockdown 2
We have reviewed service delivery in light of the advice on the restrictions that come into force on Thursday November 5th. The current approach of CLEAR is as follows:
Children and Young People
Where face to face therapy has commenced, this will continue subject to the consent of the therapist, client and carer, and the availability of a safe space to deliver.
For new Children and Young people referrals options will be discussed on a case by case basis.
Where face to face counselling has commenced, this will continue subject to the consent of the counsellor and client, and the availability of a safe space to deliver.
If face to face is no longer possible then therapy can be switched to remote support (telephone or online/video call) or the client can be put on hold.
For new referrals we will maintain our current position of remote counselling as the default for the adult service.
We continue to prioritise the wellbeing and safety of our workforce and clients, and to respect individual circumstances through these difficult times.
Previous Covid-19 statements are available here: 25 September, 18 July, 25 March, 18 March
At the moment we do not know if the new lockdown will continue past the current 4 week period - we will continue to keep our approach under review as the situation with the pandemic evolves.
