Finding the Entrance to the SFU Surrey Counselling Centre

The SFU SCC is located near the SW corner of the school building. 

From 122nd Street, enter the parking lot to the south of the school.

Look to your left for a tall metal signpost and sign that says "SFU Surrey Counselling Centre." 

Follow the paved path from the sign to a blue door on the outside of the bulding (near a set of blue stairs on the outside of the building).

The blue door opens directly into our waiting room.

Where do I park?  

Free parking is available in the lot south of the building (entrance off 122nd Street).

History of the Counselling Centre  

Since the SFU SCC opened in 2008, 80 Counselling Psychology Program graduate students have provided more than 2780 hours of free counselling services to close to 360 individuals. Historically, approximately 1 in 3 of the individuals who receive services at the SFU SCC have been students, or parents of students in SD #36.

Are the Counsellors Qualified?  

Yes! SFU SCC is a training Centre for students in the Master's Program in Counselling Psychology in the Faculty of Education at SFU.  All students in the Counselling Psychology Program complete an important component of their training as professional counsellors at the SFU SCC: the Supervised Clinic courses.  During these courses, students spend 8 months providing free counselling services to children, youth, and adults in the Surrey community.  The students' work at the Centre is closely supervised by fully qualified counsellors and psychologists who teach in the SFU Counselling Psychology Program and who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of counsellor education.
