COVID-19 - 08 JANUARY 2021 UPDATE
The Queensland Premier announced this morning (Friday 8/01/2021) that the Greater Brisbane area will enter a three-day lockdown to stop the spread of the highly contagious UK strain of COVID-19.
As all Mental Health Practitioners, we are considered an essential business. Therefore, we would like to confirm that at Mindful Perspectives Psychology, we will continue to operate as usual during periods of lockdown. As we have been navigating through COVID times since its onset in 2019, we continue to take all the necessary measures to ensure our service to you is not interrupted. As your safety and wellbeing is paramount, we will continue to adhere to our COVID-Safe Plan by ensuring safe and good health practices such as social distancing, use of hand sanitisers and face masks, cleaning surfaces in between consultations, and encouraging clients to stay home if they feel unwell.
If you have booked in for a consultation and you have concerns about attending your appointment in person, please contact our helpful admin staff as soon as possible to discuss your personal needs. While some clients may prefer to continue in-person consultations, some may prefer to attend their appointment via TeleHealth and we are more than happy to accommodate this.
We would like to once again, take this opportunity to express our gratitude for being mindful of the current dangers in the community and for being so diligent in following the recommendations of our Queensland Government to ensure the safety of our community.
Please remember to check in with us regularly for more up-to-date information as it becomes available.

From 6:00 pm tonight, people are permitted to be outside their homes for any purpose, subject to restrictions below:
Face masks must be carried at all times when leaving home, unless a person has a lawful reason not to do so. With the exception of home, people must wear a mask in indoor spaces including:
- indoor workplaces (where it is safe to wear a face mask and you can't physically distance);

It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when outdoors if you are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people, such as busy walkways and thoroughfares.
In keeping with the recommendations, we encourage all our clients to wear a mask when attending appointments. Face masks will be available in the event you forget to bring one.
