Updated: May 11
This time has been, for me, a time to slow down, reflect, and focus on what's essential. That has included continuing my work with clients, which I am so grateful for (not everyone has been able to work, nor feel like they have more time for themselves), as well as connecting with nature, listening to music, re-energizing my at-home yoga practice, and just taking time to connect with myself and others. It has, of course, come with some fear, which I realized is a natural reaction to help protect myself and those around me. Connecting with this feeling has allowed me to know at which pace I work and live best, how I imagine organizing my full-time practice work, as well as knowing at which point I'm ready to come back to in-person sessions.
Following the recent announcement from the Swiss Office of Public Health concerning the re-opening of some businesses, I would like to announce that I will begin offering some in-person sessions starting the 6th of May.
I will also continue offering online sessions for those who prefer to work at a distance. This allows clients to choose what feels right for them, so please give some thought to your own boundaries and preferences.
Our office is collectively working to implement the following practices to keep us all safe and comfortable.
For our clients:
Washing hands upon arrival, either with soap and water or with hand sanitizer, which will be provided
Wearing a protective mask during sessions (can either be brought from home or will be provided by the therapist) and taking it with you when you leave
Coming on-time to sessions, as well as coming alone, to avoid using the waiting area
Coughing and sneezing into the crook of your arm or a tissue, as well as avoiding touching your face while in the practice
Staying at home if you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms, or have had symptoms during the past 14 days
For our therapists:
Washing hands regularly, especially upon arrival and in-between clients
Wearing masks while working
Refraining from shaking hands/hugging clients
Disinfecting commonly used surfaces regularly
Staying at home if we have a fever, cough, or other symptoms, or have had symptoms during the past 14 days
We hope to continue to provide a calm and relaxing atmosphere, especially during this time of uncertainty.
New clients are of course welcome during this time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
