Building / Operational Update
REGARDING ROOM BOOKINGS
UPDATE (10) – 22 JULY 2020
To the Psychosynthesis Trust Community
We are very pleased to share that we are now in a position whereby we can announce our plans in reopening our building for those that rent our counselling and training spaces.
Our intention is to reopen the Psychosynthesis Trust building on Tuesday 1st September 2020
Thank you to everybody that took part in our survey – this has helped inform our decision-making processes to reopen the building. We had a fantastic response with 91 people responding.
We feel it is important to not just align with the Government protocols, but also to listen to our community’s needs, the scientific advice, our peer organisations, and to our own intuition.
The survey asked about the potential of returning to physical bookings. Almost 75% of answers pointed towards a post-September return or were considering when to come back. This response points to a significant interest in coming back into the building to practice.
When analysed, there are 3 key areas of concern that the survey highlighted – the worry of contracting the virus, travelling, and many clients not ready to return to physical meeting.
We have learned throughout this year that things can change very rapidly, and these plans will be under constant review before and after this date. We may have an opportunity to open some booking slots in August for those counsellors, or their clients, that have a more urgent need to return to face-to-face session. We will communicate any such opportunities if and when they arise.
To open safely we are working on a range of measures based on a full Covid-19 risk assessment that we have conducted and verified with our health and safety provider.
The survey gave people the chance to express what safety measures are important to them in returning to the building.
Closer to reopening we will share the full range of measures that we have put in place. The key measures are attached to this email.
We will also need your help when we reopen. We must continue to respect client confidentiality, so it is important that you share the key measures with your clients and manage any track and trace obligations with them if symptoms occur.
The new room booking system development is in its final stages, and a separate communication will be circulated when we are closer to launching this, which will include full details of how rooms will be offered for bookings going forward. For September we will use the new system in a reduced format whilst we help you get set on the system for October and beyond.
Come join us on Tuesday’s between 3pm and 4pm for our #TrustCuppa where you will be able to ask any questions about our building re-opening. Pop the kettle on and come in and out at any time during the hour. We look forward to seeing you there!
#TrustCuppa every Tuesday at 3pm on Zoom
We hope that you and your loved ones are well during these times.
