Canadian Certified Counsellors:
A National Certification Program for Professional Counsellors.
Some clients have Extended Health Benefits which may cover the cost of my counselling services and courses. Each benefit plan appears to be different and clients can refer their benefits plan administrator to the information on this page to see if they will cover these expenses.
I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, which is a national certification. The local provincial equivalent for British Columbia is the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and there equivalent Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC).
I have a Masters Degree (MA) from a recognized professional school called the Adler University. Here is more information on my credentials
In 1986, the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association established a credentialing service for its members. Certification represents a successful evaluation of a member’s qualification to practice and permit the use of the letters CCC as the appropriate statement about qualifications to practice counselling.
The Canadian Certified Counsellor certification is a national service that identifies to the public those counsellors who CCPA recognizes as qualified to provide counselling services in Canada. Obtaining the status of Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) includes recognition of standards of professional preparation, continuing education, and a formal code of ethics. As a non-statutory self-regulating body, CCPA provides advice and discipline for members on matters of professional conduct.
Only counsellors who are certified by CCPA are permitted to use the trademarked title Canadian Certified Counsellor and/or the acronym ‘CCC’. Certified Professional Members also receive a certificate which their clients should expect to see displayed at the place of work.
