Counselling Fee Changes

Hello Peak Resilience Community!

As of July 15th we will be changing our fees for incoming clients. We deeply appreciate and value the relationships we have with our clients (you!), so we are offering a grace period to our current clients. To show our gratitude and honour the relationships we have built with you, we will not increase our fees for current clients until October 15, 2019.

As a team, we’ve thought a lot about our fees, and our tendency to shy away from increasing them despite not raising them for 4 years. As women and counsellors we try to be aware of the messages we have internalized that make it hard for us to ask for what we’re worth - this is a part of our own work. The reason we are increasing our fees is to provide the best quality service and that also means being transparent. 

Practicing Body Positivity

This time of year can be pretty tricky when it comes to what it’s like to be a body in the world.  It’s hard not to notice the ‘get a beach body now!’ messages popping up on magazine covers and hear people shaming themselves for eating ice cream. It’s also been heartening to see some pushback (especially on the internet) about this - things like memes about having a ‘bikini body’ (spoiler: have a body, put a bikini on it).
