SFU Surrey Counselling Centre

We do not provide counselling to SFU students. Please visit SFU Health. 

SFU Surrey Counselling Centre Closure - COVID-19 / January 2021

To our valued Clients and Referral sources:

We have had to make the difficult decision to close the SFU Surrey Counselling Centre for individual, face to face counselling at this time.


SFU SCC is proudly part of Simon Fraser University, and SFU is providing primarily online remote instruction for this spring term

Because the location of our Clinic is currently offsite, it is not possible to ensure safety for students, staff and community members to be meeting for in-person counselling.

We are excited, however, to be offering an Online Coping with Stress group program weekly on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00 pm February 24th through March 24th, 2021. Please leave us a message at 604.587-7320 if you are interested.

Counselling Resources during COVID-19

Please access the resources below for mental health services offered in BC during COVID-19:

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.
