Corona Virus

I know it is an uncertain time for everyone .

Hopefully this post will answer any questions you

 may have and put your mind at ease related to therapy

and supervision  .

We have an ethical duty to prevent harm to our clients ,

 it is important to strike a balance between taking appropriate

precautions while not causing undue concerns as some

 of you may feel increasingly anxious at this time.

At this stage we remain open offering face to face support

 and  we continue offering online and phone therapy as an alternative.

There are many simple steps that can be taken  to support

 our safety whilst meeting  face to face .

We are washing our hands thoroughly before and after clients 

 and  encourage all  clients to use the  hand sanitizer  provided .

We are disinfecting  door handles and hand rests of chairs

 and any equipment that has been in contact between clients.

There is plenty of space within the therapy room and it is 

possible to sit at a recommended distance .

Physical contact is to be avoided  .

We will air the therapy room between consults

We would ask if tissues are used within session that you

 take them home and dispose of them your self 

or place them  in the disposable bags provided .

We would ask if you or your household  fall in to the symptomatic 

or  at risk categorie to follow the guidelines given and self isolate .

Please let us know so that we can agree  a plan of support to suit you .

 This might be the option to put your therapy on hold to reschedule

 you appointment  or to continue  therapy through online and

 or telephone support .

Connecting Space Journals – Online Therapeutic Community

Connecting Space Journals – Online Therapeutic Community

Regular Summary One – May 08

Hello to all of you who are interested in subscribing to our no fee Connecting-Space Journals. We hope you will find this site a safe enough space to excavate new depths in yourself and in relationship with others. Our hope is for this to become an online Therapeutic Community. We expect to publish regular summaries giving an overview of activity on the site, so that you can estimate whether this site is for you. Guest Passes are available if you wish to view site prior to becoming a member: please email

This is the Registration hyperlink off the main web site. All are reminded that this process is semi-automated and requires an invitation code to be allowed on to the journal part of the site. If you already have a user name and password this link takes you to the Logon Screen and the part of the site where you can put up a post, or an image.

Connecting Space is an ‘organic’ website structured in such a way that a person has the opportunity to explore their hopes and fears with others. The posts are given character with the use of images which describe the writing. So far the site is being tested by a small numbers of subscribers. Just like a seed grows slowly and requires time to germinate, so we are allowing the site to show itself as we work together with our own particular insights and gifts. We welcome your positive feedback and contributions to the site.

There are different categories that can ‘contain’ various themed posts, together with contributions. The ‘MattersTitles’ are also links to that part of the site that grabs your interest; they of course will not work without you being logged in.
