Easy to Access Support

Available online throughout BC and in unregulated provinces, and in person in Vancouver.

East Vancouver Counselling (EVC) is a well-established teaching centre and an approved practicum site for many highly reputable graduate training programs. We have carefully selected our graduate-level Interns from a pool of hundreds of candidate applications.

When you work with an Intern, you get their recent learning about the latest research in psychology, as well as their supervisor’s attention, focus, and oversight of your care. 

Intern rates are $60/session (+gst) and sliding scale options may also available with Interns; please ask about this if needed. 

There may be some more complex psychological needs that would be better helped by a licensed team member or referred for specialist care. 

If you’re not sure who to book with, please contact us for help to find the right person. 

Want more information before booking or not clear how to book? You can contact our practitioners directly to set up your appointments, or reach out to our Admin team and we’ll help you get settled in with the right person.
