Resources for working safely with clients online

Resources for working safely with clients online


We are creating new resources on coaching and working digitally.

This is an urgent need, because although many coaches, mentors and supervisors already work digitally with their clients, there is going to be a marked increase with the coronavirus epidemic, with its severe limitations on physical proximity.

We already have two resources to share, as follows:

Information Commisioner’s Office – has issued a notice clarifying that health professionals are able to contact their clients about health concerns, this being an emergency.

BACP – has an excellent fact sheet, ‘Working Online in the Counselling Professions’, which sets ethical guidelines for how we work ethically and safely with clients online.
