Covid-19 – Ask the Psychotherapist

What Kind Of Emotional Impact Are You Seeing With People During This Pandemic? 

The emotional impact depends on how people were before this all began. It creates a lot of anxiety for people who have already been bereaved.

How Is Psychotherapy Helping? 

It offers a safe space, even online, to be heard.

What Might You Say To People Who Are Struggling? 

This is a difficult time. It can re-activate some old feelings as well as stir other ones.

Some ICP registrants were asked three questions regarding the Covid-19 crisis. These three identical questions and analogous answers will be posted weekly on the ICP blog and disseminated across the social media channels – Facebook; Twitter; LinkedIn. The purpose of this Q & A is to demonstrate the psychotherapeutic experience during the coronavirus pandemic. The responses are personal to the psychotherapists’ practice and relatable to their fellow psychotherapists. This Q & A presents real life experiences of those in the mental health field.

Every psychotherapist registered with ICP is invited to engage in the programme. If you are an ICP registrant interested in making a contribution, please email your answers / contact details to
