COVID-19 Updates and Procedures

To all new and current clients, the Ministry of Health revised directive dated March 19th, 2020 allows healthcare providers to gradually return to non-urgent, in-person practice.  As of May 19, 2020, professionals or organizations that provide in-person counselling services are listed as an essential business. As this comes as *welcoming* news please note that I will adhere to the comfort/safety level of each individual. I will continue to practice with the option to be seen virtually (platform: Jane app and/or Doxy.me). 

 

There is no pressure to be seen in-person and I ask that you check in with your own comfort/safety and research as to risk assessment.  Should you choose an in-person session, I will underscore and ensure you have done so with informed consent, signing a waiver form and full understanding of the in-office COVID procedures. Also, please note

that these directives are dynamic and are always changing based on
health safety. I will always ensure information is being communicated via email, my booking site (Jane App) and this website.

**I accept all clients and will not ask your private health decisions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.**

COVID In-Person Procedures 

There will be a COVID-19 Screening and Waiver Form that is a mandatory form to be completed through our *Jane* booking site prior to your appointment, should you choose to attend in-person.  The Screening Survey questions will need to be answered prior to every appointment and automatically sent via email.

PPE will be used as outlined in my attached detailed COVID-19 procedures and I have increased the frequency of disinfection in the office in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Please read and adhere to the following requests:

  • If you have experienced any of the COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to anyone with these symptoms in the last 14 days - PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE. 

  • Upon entering the office, please wear PPE, use the hand sanitizer provided in the front entrance and keep your shoes on.

  • Please come alone to the office unless this is absolutely unavoidable or pre-arranged.

  • Please wear your chosen PPE upon entering.  I appreciate that you can choose to remove, once sitting at the 2 metre distanced chairs.

  • It is imperative that you inform me of any symptoms or diagnosis of COVID-19 at any time.

  • Please note: the limits of confidentiality may include the requirement to disclose client names, appointment dates, time of entry and departure to Public Health to aid in contact tracing should I become aware that a client has a confirmed infection.
