Counselling Fees

Innova Centre counsellors have received professional training and qualifications at the Masters-degree level from different accredited institutions of higher learning. We are also members of either the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) or the BC Association of Social Workers.

We carry the certifications Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) or Registered Social Worker (RSW).

The services that our clients receive from us will reflect our training, professionalism and experience. To get to know a little about each of our counsellors, click here.

Reduced Fees

We believe that people should not be denied counselling due to financial constraints. ​Most of our counsellors can offer a limited number of clients a reduced fee. These limited spots are usually reserved for seniors, students, and those who are unemployed, or who are unable to afford the full fee. Do verify with your counsellor before therapy begins.

If you have any questions at all or if you are ready to book your free 30-minute consultation, please call us at 604-484-2737 or e-mail us at
