Sport Psychology Associates are committed to maintaining the health and wellbeing of both our clients and psychologists during this difficult and uncertain time. While we strive to meet client needs with appropriate flexibility, we are also committed to following Governmental advice and guidelines and those of our professional bodies.
As such, we respectfully ask that if you feel unwell, have a cough, have returned from overseas in the last two weeks or are required to self-isolate, please contact your therapist to discuss an online appointment. In view of the Prime Minister's announcement today March 23 2020, please be aware that some of our psychologists may choose to offer only on-line/phone appointments until we progress to Level 4 after Wednesday 25th March 2020 until further notification. We aim to work collectively to overcome these challenges and appreciate your understanding.
The Association of Applied Sport Psychology has offered a very helpful guide to support us in our collective goal. This has many tips for athletes, coaches, parents and our sporting communities. https://appliedsportpsych.org/blog/2020/03/the-covid-19-pandemic-tips-for-athletes-coaches-parents-and-the-sport-community/.
Please note however that this is an American resource so not all of the information is relevant to us here in NZ. In particular, for urgent mental health support please contact your own General Practitioner, After Hours Accident and Emergency service or dial 111 if there is an emergency and you need immediate help. The mental health organization offers many resources also https://www.mentalhealth.org.nz/
