Fee increase July 1st, 2024

At Fieldwork, we are committed to providing affordable, high-quality mental health care to our community. Today, I want to inform you about an important update regarding our service fees.

Effective July 31st, 2024, the fees for sessions with our Registered Clinical Counsellors will increase ~3.5%. For a standard 50-minute individual session, this will mean an increase of $140 to $145.

This decision was not made lightly. Over the past few years, the costs associated with running our practice have increased significantly. Expenses for supplies, office space, insurance, and other overhead have all seen substantial increases. To continue offering the level of service and care you expect and deserve, we need to adjust our fees accordingly.

We understand that any increase in cost can be challenging. However, we are proud to say that even with this adjustment, our fees will remain about 15% lower than other group practices in Vancouver. Our goal has always been, and will continue to be, to keep our services financially accessible to as many people as possible.

Since our last fee adjustment, which involved the inclusion of GST in 2023, we have strived to maintain our rates despite rising costs. Your trust and support have been invaluable, and we want to ensure that our practice can continue to serve you effectively.

We will be communicating this change to all our current clients via email in mid-June, allowing ample time for any questions or concerns you may have.

We remain committed to offering the lowest fees in the area. We hope this reassures you of our ongoing dedication to making high-quality mental health care accessible.

Thank you for your understanding and continued trust in our services. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to me here.
