Notice to the Public:
The past 3 months have brought tragedy, sacrifice, and change to our world as we faced the first pandemic in a generation. However, despite our struggles, we have come together in ways that collectively demonstrate our courage, tenacity, and perseverance in the face of adversity.
Skinner Coaching & Psychotherapy is proud of our community and the steps you have taken to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19. As such, we remain committed to doing our part to keep our community and clients safe during our re-emergence from the pandemic. In accordance with public health and regulatory guidelines, we will resume in-person visits with clients effective June 1st, 2020
To maximize our efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, we do encourage clients to continue, where possible, the use of telephone or video sessions offered through our Cozy At Home E-Counselling service. This service will be offered indefinitely to support public safety and to provide an option to clients seeking a more flexible service.
To protect the safety of the public and reduce the chances of community spread, BSCP will take the following precautions including, but not limited to:
- Pre-screening of clients prior to each in-person appointment using a COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire approved by the Ontario Ministry of Health.
- Practice social distancing in sessions.
- Limiting access to communal spaces and waiting areas.
- Limiting office access to staff and essential service personnel.
In addition to these supplemental measures, we will continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines as well as effective hygiene practices to support Infection Prevention and Control. Non-medical masks will be available free of charge.
B. Skinner Coaching and Psychotherapy will continue to lead as the world re-opens and we re-establish a new way of life and business. We extend our sincerest thanks to our clients, who have placed their trust in us and our staff who have worked tirelessly and adjusted graciously to uphold the highest standards of service. Finally, we say ‘Thank You’ to you, the public, for doing what you could to flatten the curve. You have inspired us! Whatever comes next, know that we will continue to be here for you!
