The Community Counselling Centre (CCC) provides long-term, low-cost, and low-barrier counselling services to adults (18+) in and around the community of Prince George, BC on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T'enneh Nation.
Existing as both a counselling facility and training centre for students in their graduate studies, the CCC has been serving the community since 2009.
Individualized one-on-one counselling can provide you with the opportunity to explore personal struggles in a safe and validating environment. This exploration is done with the intention of increasing insight, understanding, and meaning around personal life challenges in order to work towards increasing your overall quality of life.
It is important to know that at times, due to the nature of exploration that things may feel worse before they feel better. That said, safety in the therapeutic relationship is a key foundation of therapy at the CCC and our counsellors will work with you at your own pace.
Under the supervision of our Executive Director and Clinical Coordinator, all counselling sessions at the CCC are conducted by graduate level students who are working towards their Masters degree with a specialization in counselling.
Local practitioners interested in accessing clinical supervision through the CCC should contact our Executive Director.
Couples couselling will be returning to the CCC in early 2023. Under the supervision of Dr. John Sherry our counsellors undergo specialized training to provide opportunities for couples to gain insight, emotional understanding, work on healthy communication, and more.
We are still developing our couples intake process. If you would like a phone call when we are ready to begin, call the front desk and let them know.
At this time we are unable to offer family counselling services.
At this time we are unable to offer group counselling services.
WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING
At times the CCC offers workshops and training opportunities to practitioners from outside of our centre. If you are interested in being informed of these trainings, please contact our Executive Director.
Individual Counselling: $20.00 per session (50 mins.)
Couples Counselling: $40.00 per session (50 mins.)
By the nature of our low-barrier service, all of our services at the CCC are on a sliding scale. This means that should you not have the financial means to accommodate the cost of counselling we will not deny you access. Paying for your sessions helps the centre cover overhead costs like rent, supplies, equipment, and training. However if you are unable to pay you may still access counselling services through the CCC.
