SFU Surrey Community Counselling is staffed by a dedicated team of counsellor-educators and trainees from the SFU Master's Program in Counselling Psychology. Faculty members in the program are committed to excellence in counsellor education and to providing Counsellor-Trainees with instruction, supervision, and learning opportunities that lead to effective, ethical, and professional practice.
We provide Surrey and surrounding communities with high quality counselling services at no cost. Since the SFU SCC opened in 2008:
All counselling at the SFU Surrey Counselling Centre is provided by graduate students (Counsellor-Trainees) in the SFU Master's program in Counselling Psychology under the direct supervision of the SFU Master's in Counselling Program instructional team.
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. Registered counsellors and psychologists who teach in the SFU Counselling Psychology Program directly supervise the students’ work at the Centre.
Counsellor-trainees at the SFU SCC are in their second year, and have completed a full year of theoretical and ethical training. In addition, Counsellor-trainees already come to the program with strong backgrounds in community service.
