Connect like a Mother
We are excited to announce that we will be offering another series of our online Motherhood Group, starting in March!

Motherhood at the best of times is messy and confusing. Due to the increased demands on us during COVID-19 -  juggling responsibilities, managing relationships, maintaining a home, and navigating an endless amount of uncertainty - it is an entirely new and complex experience. 

Many of us are feeling even more exhausted, anxious, and isolated than ever before. In response to this, we decided to offer a 4 week online Group for Mothers this past summer. 
After running this first group, we heard loud and clear what moms are needing now more than ever: more opportunities for connection, support, and community building with fellow moms. So, we are facilitating another series of this group, to do just that!

The intention of this group is to connect as a community of mothers, raise awareness and challenge some of the ways that we are oppressed through mainstream messaging, all in a safe and therapeutically supportive environment. We want to engage in discussion about what it’s like to be a parent during a global pandemic. 

What have you learned about yourself? 

What have you let go of? 

What is a “good parent” and who taught us what that label meant? 

Through these conversations, we can share stories of success and struggle, learn from one another, and hopefully walk away with some different, more helpful perspectives.

The “Connect like a Mother” group will run weekly for 6 weeks starting Tuesday March 30th from 1:00-2:30pm. Each week we will focus on a different topic:

Week 1: Motherhood & COVID-19
Week 2: Beliefs about Motherhood
Week 3: Emotion Regulation & Mom-Guilt 
Week 4: Self-Compassion & Self-Care 
Week 5: Mindfulness & Conscious parenting
Week 6: Harnessing Values & Reclaiming our voices 

If you’ve read some of our other blog posts, you know that at Peak one of our values is honouring that we are humans first before we are counsellors. This group will be facilitated by Clinical Counsellors Anuschka and Robyn, who are both mothers and who are also navigating parenting during COVID-19, alongside you, in real-time!

Registration for this group is $80 per 1.5 hour session, for six sessions. However, we want to make this group as accessible as possible to those who wish to participate, so we have a limited number of scholarship spaces available. Please inquire if you wish to be considered for a scholarship.

Curious about where your money goes? Charging a registration fee for this group covers our administrative costs, compensates our counsellors for their time and group expertise, and allows us to continue to offer groups such as these at a reduced rate and offer scholarship opportunities to those in need. By paying the weekly session fee, you are gifting another spot to someone else who might not be able to afford these services!

For more information or to register for the group, please email our Admin Coordinator Annie at annie@peak-resilience.com.
