At the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Institute, we understand that everyone has a part to play in keeping each other safe and healthy during this pandemic. For maximum safety, we are offering sessions via online, confidential telehealth platforms (PHIA and FIPPA compliant). We also are offering in-person sessions with important safety protocols in place for those who prefer.
For any in-person sessions, we ask that you self-screen for any safety risk (https://sharedhealthmb.ca/covid19/screening-tool/) and make alternate arrangements for your session if any risk is present (switch to telepsychology or reschedule for a later time). We also ask that you remain outside of the building until your appointment time, you use the hand sanitizer provided upon entry to the office, and you maintain 2 metres (6 feet) of distance from anyone you encounter in the building. If anyone accompanies you to your appointment, they must wait outside the building. Our team is careful to keep up frequent handwashing/sanitizing and we thoroughly sanitize our space between appointments. We also are happy to accommodate requests to wear personal protective equipment in addition to distancing according to your comfort level. Payment is accepted via e-transfers for added protection but we continue to accept payment via credit card and debit (with sanitization protocols in place between transactions).
Please stay safe and try to remain optimistic. We will get through this together.
