As of close of business Tuesday 24th of March, Guidestar clinicians and therapists will cease face-to-face consultations. From Tuesday 24th of March, all consultations will be via Telehealth with all clinicians, in whichever format is negotiated between clients and their therapists (videoconference or telephone). Your clinician or therapist will contact you directly regarding the method of service provision they are transitioning to, the type and timing of this service, and the date from which this transition will affect you (or you can email your clinician/therapist and clarify your preferred option at this time – firstname.lastname@guidestarlife.com.au).

Guidestar is committed to supporting you through this process and finding pro-active solutions to difficulties or obstacles. Our goal during this time is to continue to assist individuals, families, carers and service providers to access the supports and therapies they need, in whatever form we can. We truly hope to provide you with the care and support you need in the coming weeks and months, so please ask your clinician or reception if you have questions or concerns.

Reception will continue to be available via phone or email during this time.

Thank you in anticipation for your understanding.

Kind Regards,

The Guidestar Team
