Due to the current outbreak of Covid-19, restrictions have been put in place to ensure the safety of the clients and the therapist, and minimise transmission of the virus. Please read the following carefully and answer the questions at the end of this page to the best of your knowledge.

Please reschedule your appointment even if you only have mild cold symptoms as many people with Covid-19 experience very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. Cancellation fees would be waived.

If you prefer not to take any risk, please book a video appointment, they are very convenient and effective, many people prefer them.   

Office cleaning:

  • There will be hand sanitiser available for you at reception, in the toilet facilities and in the office.
  • All areas that you are likely to come into contact in the office with will be cleaned with anti-bacterial spray and/or wipes. This will be done before and after each session. 
  • I am unable to open a window for ventilation, but the treatment room will be ventilated during the extended 30-minute gap that I have put in place in between treatments.


  • Please arrive on time for your appointment, no more than 5 minutes before the start of the session. If you arrive earlier you will have to wait outside until your appointment time. 
  • Your temperature will be taken with a no-contact infrared thermometer.  If your temperature is over 38 degrees then you will be asked to return home and call 111 for advice.
  • There will be no handshakes or physical contact.

During the session:

  • Christophe is fully vaccinated.
  • The office has been arranged so that we can maintain a 2-metre distance.
  • There is an air-purifier running non-stop to help keep the air fresh and clean.
  • There will be no physical contact.
  • Those measures mean that wearing a mask is optional in my office, I'm happy to wear one if you prefer. 
  • Talking is thirsty work, so please bring your own drink with you.

In the event of a full lockdown preventing face-to-face therapy:

  • You will be offered online therapy sessions; alternatively you may postpone until the lockdown is lifted.

If Christophe gets Covid-19:

  • If the symptoms are mild and allow me to work, I would offer an online alternative.
  • You would be offered to postpone the appointment.
  • You will be offered to be referred to a colleague.
  • Cancellation fees will obviously not apply.

By attending your face-to-face appointment at the Folkestone Hypnotherapy office:

  • You agree to my contact details being given to NHS Test and Trace in the interests of public health.
  • You understand that the face to face conversational element of therapy, combined with the length of exposure during a typical therapy session, puts you and your therapist at particular risk.
  • You agree to the necessary adaptations required to treatments before and during sessions and agree to social distancing measures.
  • You understand that these adaptations help to reduce the risk of Covid-19 but cannot eradicate it.
  • You understand that receiving treatment may increase your risk of exposure to Covid-19.
  • If your situation changes prior to the session, you will inform Christophe to reschedule the session.
