Psychological support in pandemic

Given the current grip of the Corona virus on our collective stage, we would like to contribute our services to honour our shared humanity.

We hope that these online spaces will enable people access their inner resources and coping skills to better face the ongoing challenges of this difficult situation.

We are offering the following services gratis till end April 2020 for the following people.

1. Psychological support for healthcare providers involved in relief efforts, their families, and care-givers of people impacted directly and grappling with the consequences

Participants can use the individual one-on-one confidential sessions to work out their own conflicts, dilemmas, stresses, anxieties and fears. We also offer healing work with traumatic experiences.

Healthcare providers (medical / nursing staff)

– 4 online individual sessions, spaced once / twice a week (as sought)

– session duration: 40 minutes

Families of either healthcare providers, or care-givers of people impacted directly

– 2 online sessions, spaced a week apart

– individual or joint session (max. 2 people in a session)

– session duration: 50 minutes

* Please note that these sessions are meant to provide interim psychological support and are not intended to replace regular therapy, or initiate one.
