The APTL Guide to Covid-19

 Updated on 4th January 2021

 As an Association we are once again very sad that as an industy we have had to close our doors once again. 

It has been a difficult year and continues to chanllenge us going into 2021, both financialy and mentally but the only way to approach the situation is with an open and loving heart and know that  we will all get through this. 

As an organisaton we are still very small and unlike the established associations and federations,  our budget and man power is limited, so our advice to members is to follow the Guildelines issued by the Governement; keep yourself, and your clients safe but also try if you can, to free yourself from the fear. We know it is hard not to worry and be scared, but do your own research, be non judgemental and be true to yourself during these difficult times. 

Please remember, we have members who are meditation teachers and members who are healers, so please reach out if you are struggling emotionally, and make sure that you apply for any available grants if you are struggling financially. These might be Government grants or local council grants. 

We know that to date you have all done your best by following the guidelines, you have done your risk assessments and implemented your Covid Safety measures.  Track and Trace and the requirement to display a QR code is a little unclear, especially if you work from home or do home visits. Not every client has a smart phone so in order to comply a Covid-19 consultation form is a wise addition to your normal record keeping.  Click here for information on QR Code and Track and Trace
