Covid-19 Information and Resources

The current global Covid-19 pandemic and our response to this is causing massive impacts on everyone. My practice changes if we are in Alert Levels 3 and 4.  In these levels, I will provide all assessments and treatment via telehealth. I have a bit more information about telehealth in my FAQ section. In Levels 1 and 2, I will continue to do most sessions in person, or in some cases I can provide services using telehealth. In Level 2, I will wear a face mask, and will need to screen all clients before they attend their sessions, before we can conduct any face-to-face sessions.
Please access information about Covid-19 from reputable sources such as the covid19.govt.nz website or the Ministry of Health website: health.govt.nz
