From Colin

Update on 17th October 2020 to reflect the London Tier 2 changes.

After consultation with other psychosexual therapists, masseurs and massage organisations I confirm that following the recent changes in government restrictions on social contact ( 17/10/2020) I am continuing to see clients for individual sensual massage, psychosensual treatments and private training sessions. However, there continue to be no group workshops until further notice.

My personal position is this.

I have taken a view on my situation as a therapist who works close at hand with clients. Since I work from home and do not travel on public transport nor do I have to mix in large crowds or office space and I see only between 7 – 10 clients a week, I believe that my exposure to infection is less of a risk than most.  On this basis, I have decided to continue to see clients for sensual massage treatments, psychosensual treatments, private workshops and sex and relationship coaching.

However, all appointments are to be taken at my London Bridge treatment room where I can maintain a high level of hygiene and I continue to have in place sensible practical protection for both myself and my clients.

If you wish to make an appointment or training, please read and agree with the following requirements when booking.
