I do the majority of my life coaching via video calls and it works brilliantly.  I have clients throughout the UK, Europe and even further afield.  Obviously, this provides effective and 100% COVID-safe life coaching.

That said, there are people who choose me as their life coach because they want to work with together in person.  They find they get something different from the face to face sessions.  For some, it can be important to get out of their own environment to be able to think clearly and talk openly and honestly.

As such, and in line with the UK Government guidelines, my coaching space in Durham is open for in person sessions.  Obviously, safety is my top priority.  I have implemented many changes which surpass regulations to provide COVID-secure life coaching.  Mask wearing is not needed because of these protocols, however you are of course welcome to wear one if you choose.

With the onset of Omicron which seems to spread more easily, I am asking clients to take a lateral flow test before their appointment and only attend if it’s negative.  I do the same.

COVID-Secure In Person Life Coaching

  • Touch-free access from the road to the coaching space

  • No need to enter main body of house

  • Well-spaced appointments (max 2 per day)

  • No crossover with other people

  • Thorough cleaning protocol

  • 2 metre social distancing at all times

  • Well ventilated room (heating on but windows open so wear layers!)

  • HEPA air filter

  • COVID-safe toilet facilities available if required
    (please wear a mask)

Infection Prevention and Control

Anyone who comes for face to face coaching has to adhere to my COVID-19 Infection Prevention & Control Policy.  This document highlights what measures I am taking to make the coaching as safe as possible, and what clients are also expected to do.  In addition, this specifies that no one will attend their appointment if they feel unwell or have any symptoms.  This also applies if you are living with, or sharing a support bubble with, someone who is unwell or has symptoms. Or if you have been advised to self isolate by the NHS Trace and Test scheme.  There will be no fee for late cancellations/amendments in these cases and, if feeling well enough, coaching can be transferred to Zoom instead.

Of course, these regulations apply to me also.

Sadly, right now, there is always an increased risk with seeing people in person so if you have reservations or are in the higher risk categories, I would strongly suggest that you choose the option of video call coaching.  It’s a really effective method and eliminates any risk altogether.

If you would like to know more about any of this, and chat through your options, please just get in touch.
