Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC) provide quality mental health and substance abuse counselling to tens of thousands of British Columbians each year. An RCC will have a Master’s Degree in counselling psychology or social work which included an internship and coursework in human behaviour and development, effective counselling strategies, ethical practice, and other core knowledge areas. Many RCC’s are also certified in various other counselling techniques and strategies such as EMDR. Professional counsellors adhere to a Code of Ethics and Standard of Practice that protects the confidentiality of the counselling relationship, prohibits discrimination, and requires understanding of, and respect for, diverse cultural backgrounds. The code of ethics also mandates that professional counsellors put the needs and welfare of clients before all others in their practice. An RCC maintains membership in good standing with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors.
