The New Westminster UBC Counselling Centre is a training facility that is operated jointly by the UBC Counselling Psychology Program and the New Westminster School District (SD 40).
The Centre has been providing counselling services to the New Westminster School District, the New Westminster community, and the surrounding lower mainland area for more than 35 years.
The mandate of the Centre is to provide high quality counsellor education to students in the Master’s and Doctoral programs in Counselling Psychology and to provide effective counselling services to the public. All counsellor trainees receive direct supervision from university faculty.
The New Westminster UBC Counselling Centre provides free counselling for adults, children, and youth from September to June. Day and evening appointments are available. All counselling is provided by students in the UBC Master’s and Doctoral programs in Counselling Psychology.
Counselling can be helpful for addressing personal problems, interpersonal difficulties, life stress, career and life transitions, and challenges related to work or school.
If we are not able to help we may be able to provide alternative service referrals.
