SFU Surrey Counselling Centre Update (August 2021) 

To our valued Clients and Referral sources:

We are in the process of moving!

The SFU Surrey Counselling Centre is excited to announce that we are in the process of moving our location to the SFU Surrey Campus.

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: Telehealth Online counselling begins fall 2021! 

In late September 2021, we will begin offering telehealth online counselling on Wednesdays and Thursday afternoon or evenings.

Counselling will be facilitated by the Counselling psychology masters students under the supervision of their clinical supervisors.

If you are interested and believe this 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 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.
