Please be assured that David and the team at The Relationship Room are taking precautionary measures in the practice which include:
- Sanitising each room before and after each client has attended with anti-bacterial sprays and wipes. Including sparying and wiping down all contact surfaces. This includes pens that new clients use to complete necessary forms.
- Social distancing – which includes the therapist sitting at least 1.5-2 metres away from clients – our premises is in an old stone wall house which means our rooms are very large and have plenty of natural light and air.
- Providing a warning on the practice door to any client with flu-like symptoms not to enter the premsis,
- Every visitor to the practice on reporting to reception will be asked to sanitise their hands.
