Happy New (& Improved) Year!
Ontario continues to be in the Grey/Lockdown level of Ontario’s COVID-19 Response Framework. As members of the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO), the recommendations for how we operate (as regulated healthcare professionals) have not changed. As such, if you have an appointment booked during the lockdown, you can anticipate this taking place as planned. If you had previously been permitted to be seen for an in-person appointment, this will also take place as planned at the office (unless you have been contacted directly by your clinician, or if you fail our symptom screening questions).

July 20, 2020 - September 6, 2020
As you probably know, London was permitted to enter Stage 3 of provincial "re-opening" on July 17th. Since that time, psychologists have not been given any new recommendations when it comes to getting back to normal and seeing our clients in the office.

Archways Centre for CBT is continuing to offer therapy primarily virtually (by telephone and secure video), as recommended by the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO). However, when virtual therapy is neither practical nor clinically appropriate, a client might be permitted to be seen for an in-person appointment.

The Chief Medical Officer of Health has stated that “Health Care Providers are in the best position to determine which services should continue to be provided remotely (online, by telephone or other virtual means) and which should be provided in-person."  Therefore, the decision to offer in-person sessions at Archways Centre for CBT is at the discretion of the individual’s psychologist or psychological associate.

If you are in distress or need emotional support immediately, please call 1-833-456-4566 (Canadian Suicide Prevention and Support Line). If this is an emergency, please call 911.
