As the UK continues to ease restrictions, please check with your insurer and liaise closely with your practice managers to ensure the re-opening of businesses takes place in a safe and secure fashion.
We recommend you also monitor the government’s advice on the Covid situation which can be found on its main website: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
There will, of course, be a number of people in London, who, understandably, may be a little weary of returning to normality at the present time.
Some may reach out for help and, of course, it goes without saying that you should work remotely if the situation means that it’s best to do so.
Perhaps now is the golden opportunity to talk with your supervisor to look at ways where you can help people who’re looking to improve their levels of social confidence – ahead of June’s planned full re-opening of all aspects of UK life.
For many, it may be the first time where they may have significant interaction with others. It might be something they’re looking forward to, but, equally, it could cause a little unease if they feel ‘out of practice’ in social situations.
Helping someone who has social anxiety can provide a wonderful sense of release for them as they start to look forward to a new life where they can enjoy meeting other people and chat freely with them.
The ongoing vaccination programme has now seen tens of millions of people receive a jab.
There will still be a number who have a minor fear or phobia when it comes down to needles. It’s perhaps worth remembering a hypnotherapy practitioner can help someone who doesn’t like the idea of the ‘sharp scratch.’
Even the initial consultation can swing the intellectual brain behind the notion of vaccination, when, perhaps, the primitive brain would prefer we didn’t.
With the (hopeful) ending of lockdown and restrictions, it’s also worth remembering to take some time out for you.
And, perhaps provide yourself with a chance to positively reflect on the difference you’ve made over the past year in helping existing clients (or new ones) by utilising the knowledge you have.
Knowledge which can help to ensure people have a chance to remember the importance of positive thinking, positive action and positive interaction – even if it’s on a remote platform.
