SFU Surrey Community Counselling Update (January 2022) 

To our valued Clients and Referral sources:

We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening at our new location at the SFU Surrey Campus in February 2022!

We began offering telehealth online counselling on Wednesdays and Thursday afternoons and evenings in September 2021. Approximately mid-February, we will begin offering in-person counselling at our new site on the 4th floor of the SFU Surrey Campus. 

Counselling is facilitated by the SFU Counselling psychology master’s students under the supervision of their clinical supervisors. Sessions are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings at set recurring weekly times.

If you believe this service may be of benefit for you, Please call us at 778-706-0085 and leave us a message, clearly and slowly stating your first and last name and the phone number where we can leave a message for you. Someone will get back to you within a week to discuss whether this service may be a good fit for you and to potentially schedule a phone intake session.

PLEASE NOTE: *In person services will be conducted under our Covid-19 protocol which includes the wearing of masks throughout your time in the Clinic. More information will be provided on this website and upon inquiry.

SAFE Program

The SFU SAFE Program continues to accept referrals on an ongoing basis.

Most sessions are delivered via Counselling Psychology Master’s practicum students under the supervision of a Clinical Counsellor who is an SFU Faculty member, and are conducted in-person or virtually via online video. SAFE prioritizes referrals who:

  • are youth and families at-risk of, actively involved in, or targeted, by gang or related criminal behaviour;
  • reside in Surrey;
  • have moderate or higher level of mental health severity, risk, and/or substance use needs;
  • involved/identified/in need of multiple supports (MCFD/CYMH, Fraser Health, School District, community agencies).

If you are a client or professional referring to this program, contact the research assistant, Michelle Hubble, at safe_admin@sfu.ca with "SAFE Referral" in the subject line.
