SFU Surrey Counselling Centre Update (April 2021) 

To our valued Clients and Referral sources:

We are moving!

The SFU Surrey Counselling Centre is excited to announce that we are in the process of moving our location.  We will be updating you with more information in July of 2021.  

Thank you to Surrey School District #36

We wish to express our utmost gratitude to L.A. Matheson Secondary School and the Surrey School District  #36 for housing the SFU Surrey Counselling Centre since 2010. We have provided over 500 hours of counselling service a year to the Surrey community with the support of SD 36. Our Faculty, Counsellor-trainees and
Graduate students are grateful to have built their skills in such a supportive environment. 

Next steps

For now we will be closed and regret that we will not be offering group or individual counselling until September 2021. Please come back to the site in July 2021 for an update.

Please find here a resource list of free and low-cost counselling services that we hope will serve you during this very difficult time in the world.

SAFE Program

Though the SFU SCC Clinic is closed, SFU SAFE Program is still accepting 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 Virtually via online video, with some limited availability for in-person appointments. 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 Clinical Supervisor, Richard Tatomir, at rtatomir@sfu.ca with "SAFE Referral" in the subject line.
