Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Business As Usual – Update

In light of the ongoing situation relating to CORVID-19, I wanted to let you know about the steps I am taking to ensure I can continue to support all my clients and colleagues at this time.

My focus remains the health, wellbeing and safety of my clients and to do whatever I can to protect the wider community, particularly those over 70 and those with an underlying health problem.

Following the advice from Government to implement increased social distancing, stop all unnecessary travel and to work from home wherever possible, I am taking advantage of the flexible working arrangements I already have in place and I am working from home.

Therefore, most off my client consultations and meeting will be conducted remotely via Skype for business which complies with all privacy and security requirements and is GDRP compliant. 

Alternatively, weather permitting, I am taking safe-distance, Mindful Walks in The New Forest, showing my clients the principles of Mindfulness and Meditation as we walk and talk and unwind in nature.

If you would like more information, please get in touch with me, I would be pleased to hear from you.  


Coronavirus symptoms: what are they and should I see a doctor?

What are the symptoms this coronavirus causes?

The virus can cause pneumonia. Those who have fallen ill are reported to suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties. In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against flu will not work. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system. Many of those who have died were already in poor health.

Should I go to the doctor if I have a cough?

No. In the UK, the medical advice is now that anyone with a cough or high temperature should stay at home for seven days, keeping away from other people, including those in your home if you can. This applies to everyone, regardless of whether they have travelled abroad.

You should look on the dedicated coronavirus NHS 111 website for information. If you get worse or your symptoms last longer than seven days, you should call NHS 111. People will no longer be tested for the virus unless they are in hospital.
