About COVID-19 infection prevention measures

(Updated: April 8, 2020 )

Period of measures
From April 8, 2020 to the conclusion of the situation
About the implementation of consultation
・ Implementation
If the counselor or client is not feeling sick or infected, we will do it. The location of the implementation is at the client's home or in our counseling room. For business trip consultations, if you are worried about a counselor invading your home, we will only do it outdoors. Please send your request to the counselor in charge.
In either case, diligently disinfect your hands, wear a mask, and ventilate indoors at all times.
・ Cancellation
If the counselor or client is not feeling well or has an underlying illness, we will stop. If you are a client and feel unwell, please feel free to contact the counselor in charge.
Cancellation fee / for the reservation of transfers
As a general rule, there is no cancellation fee for cancellations due to poor physical condition of the client or COVID-19 positive.
If any of the above cancellations occur during the period, we will give priority to the transfer date. Reservation status is constantly changing and we do not guarantee transfers. Please note.
Seminar implementation (updated August 24, 2020)

Based on the current situation, in principle, the venues (Okayama, Hiroshima, Okinawa, Kagoshima, Tokushima, Yamaguchi) where we will travel by plane will be held by online seminars. At other venues, we will implement it in accordance with the infection prevention measures specified below. If the venue is held, an online seminar will be held at the same time in a place where the Wi-fi environment of the venue is good. However, even if the venue is held, it may be changed to an online seminar due to changes in the situation.

If you are attending an online seminar, please check the following notes.

Target: Seminars held after September 1, 2020 (including seminars already being recruited)

・ Advantages of online seminars

There are many benefits to participating online. Feel free to choose according to your purpose.

・ To prevent infection

・ Being able to participate even if the event is held far away

・ Being able to concentrate on taking classes

・ Being able to take classes at home

・ The dog can relax

Currently, we are making various efforts to make online seminars more enjoyable. If you have any requests, please contact the person in charge of the seminar.

·Precautions
-The line may be interrupted due to network problems (Wi-fi environment is recommended).
・ The workshop held at the same time as the venue will be distributed only when the network environment is good.
・ If you want to take the course online, you need to make a bank transfer in advance.
