Surrey Community Counselling

Update for April 2023-2024

Unfortunately, our waitlist is now closed and we are full for the summer of 2023.

SFU SCC will be closing August 2023 and reopening with clinical services in August /September of 2024. Clinical service will be temporarily unavailable for the following year.
Staff will be on site weekly through to the end of July 2023, assisting with resourcing for other services.

One of our partners, the SAFE Program - has a limited number of spaces available for general mental health referrals and has a separate intake process.

SFU Surrey Community Counselling is staffed by a dedicated team of Counsellor-educators and trainees from the SFU Master's Program in Counselling Psychology. We offer free individual and group counselling to adults, seniors, youth and school-aged children who live in Surrey and the Lower Mainland.

We do not provide counselling to SFU students. For current SFU students, please visit SFU Health.

Our Services

Reaching out for help takes courage. We appreciate that you are taking an important step in caring for your mental health. None of us can do this work alone- we all need validation and support.

All counselling is provided by Counsellor-Trainees in the Master's Program in Counselling Psychology under the direct supervision of registered counsellors and psychologists who teach in the SFU Master's Program in Counselling Psychology.

Counsellors at SFU Surrey Community Counselling help adults, seniors, youth and school-aged children with a variety of concerns, including:

  • feeling sad, depressed, or overwhelmed
  • coping with stress and anxiety
  • relationship struggles
  • low self-esteem and self-worth
  • grief and loss
  • parenting challenges
  • coping with traumatic experiences
  • life transitions and decisions
  • cultural and identity concerns
  • self-acceptance and compassion
  • balancing relationships, work, and family
  • finding purpose and making meaning

In addition to the above SFU Surrey Community Counselling services, we have a variety of resources to support you, such as the SAFE program, or COVID-19 resources.
