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.
