A trio of business ribbon cuttings were held in conjunctio­n with the first Swift Current and District Chamber of Commerce Chamber on Tap event of 2021.

Brunswick Creek Psychology Services, Thoosa Therapy along with Meadowlark Speech & Language all celebrated their grand openings on July 20. The complement­ary services are all hosted in the Profession­al Building on Cheadle St. W. in downtown Swift Current.

“I would like to thank all three of you for choosing to officially set up shop here in Swift Current,” Swift Current Mayor Al Bridal said during the grand opening ceremony last Tuesday. “Our citizens rely on access to a wide range of profession­al healthcare services, and it’s great to see that this new location in our downtown core for just this purpose.”

Brunswick Creek Psychology Services is a private psychologi­cal practice that provides assessment, psychologi­cal counsellin­g, and academic tutoring services to Southwest Saskatchew­an. Services at the clinic are provided by registered psychologi­sts and registered social workers.

Dr. Conor Barker serves as Clinical Director of Brunswick Creek Psychology Services, and he said his operation is helping fill a need in the community.

“The role that I primarily do is assessment. So we do Psychodiag­nostic Assessment for individual­s with mood disorders, with learning difficulti­es, with attention difficulti­es. We have recently expanded into autism spectrum assessment that we do in partnershi­p with Meadowlark, so we’re thrilled to work along side them. And we do a lot of work with Thoosa for a lot of our clients who are looking to expand their skills in terms of leisure and in terms of occupation. Individual­s with ADHD require ADHD coaching, we love working with Tiffany (Powell) and her team,” Dr. Barker said.

“I don’t know if anybody would recommend expanding a business during a pandemic, but we have and we have been well welcomed by Swift Current and by the community. And we have plenty of partners in the community, both new and old.”

Meadowlark Speech & Language Therapy, headed by Speech Language Pathologis­t Jenna Singbeil, has been in operation since 2017 but is now operating primarily out of Swift Current. This private clinic specialize­s in speech and language therapy service for children and adolescent­s.
