Covid-19 Update

Update - 11/8/2020

As the government guidance continues to change we are committed to ensuring safe and ethical work is carried out at Chapters. We have updated our H&S policy with additional considerations for staff, students and clients and we are constantly checking the validity of the way we do things.

At present we are making plans to begin new courses online in September until we have a better idea of how things will be, but once we are able to safely work in the classroom then we will begin blending in some classroom learning. As for seeing clients in-person, we were beginning to feel ready when the government guidance changed again on 8/8/20. This leaves us in a difficult situation where we are unable to take on any new clients face to face at present. We are still able to see clients remotely via Skype or Zoom or by phone and hope that  over the next few weeks we will get back to being ready to see clients in-person (although numbers will be minimal). We will update existing clients first who were put 'on hold' when we went into lockdown and then offer any  additional sessions to new clients. One of the current issues is that we may be required to wear masks. This feels safe but difficult on many levels. We are looking into the possibility of purchasing masks with windows!! 

Until our next update, please take very good care
