hI, I’m a group psychotherapist. We’ve been conducting therapy over MsTeams for the past 2 years and whilst the therapy isn’t the same, it works well enough. I have found it great to be able to turn up the sound on my speakers and I have a nice big screen to see everyone speak. I wear 2 aids and they help a lot.
We ar win the process of planing a return to face to face work and this will mean conducting group therapy in a large echoey room with air con and 10 or so people all sat in a circle wearing face masks.
I’m really anxious about it and struggling to see how I will cope. I need to be able to hear people speaking quietly about awful things and I’m starting to dread not being able to hear well enough.
Has anyone else experienced this ? Any tips ?
I work for the NHS here in England and they are pretty good at making reasonable adjustments if you ask, but I have absolutely no idea what to think of or ask for…
