Every single person, without exception, is coping with the pandemic and lockdown differently. Please respect everyone and how they are individually coping.
When we are able to open, at the moment scheduled for 4th July 2020, which may change…here is information about what we are putting in place in order to protect YOU and us and our families and friends.
We may ask you these questions when you book your appointment with us:
· Have you tested positive or had treatment for COVID-19?
· Have you, or has anyone you are in close contact with, had any of the following signs or symptoms associated with coronavirus ( see BMJ report on the link at the top of this page)
· Have you been strictly following the social distancing measures outlined by the government during COVID-19?
· Did you check your temperature this morning and was it normal? (We may ask you to carry out a temperature check in front of us, using a forehead strip or ear thermometer which will be provided).
We will be, for new patients, providing online consultation forms to remove the need for handling paperwork and pens.
Before you leave we will encourage you to stay safe and to be vigilant in terms of any signs or symptoms that you or someone close to you may have COVID-19.
There is further support available att fht.org.uk/blog. If you feel your mental health is suffering please consider using our Coaching Services: we offer talk therapies, and Health & Wellness Coaching. We will be spacing appointments at our clinic allowing 60 minutes between patients in order to carry out
enhanced hygiene protocols; and ensuring that you aren’t leaving and the next patient is arriving at exactly the same time.
It is possible that the government and other authorities may change their guidance on certain matters, from who should be wearing what sort of PPE and in what contexts, to re-introducing social distancing measures if the number of people affected by COVID-19 rises again. Bear this in mind as we may have to change our working practice.
Q: Will you be comfortable to treat what the government defines as ‘vulnerable’ or ‘high risk’ clients, or those shielding someone who meets the criteria?
We will be treating high-risk patients as defined by government guidelines provided that all criteria above are met by you. You may be asked to sign an additional Waiver in order to receive your treatment. We will update this regularly.
What if you are a vulnerable person or uncomfortable about resuming work?
Enhanced hygiene measures
We already adhere to high standards of hygienic practice, as outlined in the FHT Code of Conduct and Professional Practice, which includes appropriately cleaning the hands and treatment area between clients.
However, in light COVID-19, it is important that we have put in place and have enhanced our current hygiene measures we already have in place. This now includes:
· front doorbell and knocker
· handles, handrails and bannisters, where appropriate
· light switches
· toilet and sink area
· chairs in our waiting area
· payment terminal – we will not be taking or handling cash. You may pay via BACS on site, or by debit and credit card.
We will be undertaking these checklists between each patient. We will have a printed checklist in order to show each patient our checklist when you arrive for treatment, we will also display this on our treatment room wall, we may include it in a special COVID-19 policy, to give you confidence in our enhanced hygiene and health and safety protocols.
We will also be providing complimentary masks and gloves for those of you who would like to use them.
Whilst in general terms, it is sometimes hard for children and teens to sit still long enough to learn how to be more mindful and meditate, we offer fun sessions using items around the home and their toys to create a new and relaxing and fun experience, where they actually do slow down, listen and stop. We have had so much fun teaching this to young Brownie packs, as well as older teens of all ages.
It is very good for
- calming their mind
- helping with sleep
- dealing with outbursts of anger
- helping focus
- learning new ways to live their lives
- Whilst parents get hooked at the same time, seeing the results of their children

In this unprecedented time of the global pandemic, we would like to share with you how we are trying to adapt. 99% of our business is 1-1 in person. With the Lock Down instructed by the Government and Public Health England, it has found us literally with no income at all. In order to encourage engagement and ongoing communication with our many patients and our Corporate Clients, we have brought our Relaxation, Meditation & Mindfulness Workshop and our Life The Life You Deserve Workshop online, with a rolling start date. The RMM Workshop (5 x 2 hour sessions) and LTLYD Workshop (3 x 1.5 hr sessions) are very interactive and will be conducted via Zoom, WhatsApp Video, or if a 1-1, the choice can be FaceTime and IM. What this means is that you will be able to choose from a parameter of times and dates, when you would like to participate. The first step is for you to contact us and register your interest. All the notes, support pages, and tutorials will be sent to you in advance via email. In recognition of many people unable to work, work hours restricted, payments dropping to less than normal, we are offering a 30% discount off these Workshops. Make use of your spare time, and learn something new, that can change your life in a positive way.
We are also offering 2 X Free 30 minute online Meditation & Mindfulness Sessions, every Monday: 11am Monday mornings (including Easter) and 6pm Monday evenings. These will be available via Zoom only.
Our bi-weekly Meditation & Mindfulness Sessions are now every week on a Tuesday from 7pm for roughly 40 minutes. These are paid classes, £5 a class. They will follow the same format as our in-person classes: i.e. A welcome and introduction over a cup of tea, water, or coffee (you supply your own , a short breathing meditation, followed by a longer Meditation focussing on a particular area (different every week). It is then followed by a Blessing Card reading – as this is now online, we will be asking you to choose a number, and that will be your card which will be shown to you, and you then can decide whether you wish to share the meaning of the card with the group, or just keep the word and reflect on it through the week.
We really hope that you will make some time to sign up to one or all of the above classes and workshops.
