Please contact our clinic to discuss your circumstances and we will ensure you get services.

Our counselling interns

When you work with one of our counselling interns, you’re working with someone who is eager and excited about their career and helping others achieve wellness. At Crossroads Collective, we only accept the best of the best. All of our Masters of Counselling Students are supervised by an accredited supervisor with additional training in mentoring and guiding our student interns.

We offer supervision for counselling interns specializing in play therapy, child and youth, adult counselling, couples counselling, high conflict, music and art therapy. We provide students with the opportunity to gain speciality training in these diverse and in-demand areas of counselling. And, when we provide this opportunity, it provides affordable services to those in need.

Why Hire A Counselling Intern in Kelowna?

There are a lot of reasons why people choose to work with our counselling interns in Kelowna. After talking with some of our esteemed clientele, we have boiled it down to 6 main reasons why you should consider Crossroad Counselling for this amazing service:


As mentioned earlier, the rates for counselling interns are lower than if you decided to
work with a licensed professional. It allows people with a lower income to have access to
the services that they need today.


Licensed professionals will work mostly during office hours. Interns will often be available during the evening and after working hours. It might be more convenient for you to meet after working hours and not have to worry about taking time off.

New Perspective

Our counselling interns in Langley and Kelowna are learning and up to date on the latest treatments and interventions. They bring a fresh look and perspective to ailments and issues that can be afflicting you.


One of the biggest misconceptions about counselling interns is that they do not
offer quality services. Not only are they qualified, they also benefit from supervision from our seasoned practitioners.


Our interns are excited to work with you. They want to prove themselves & continue learning every single day. They are committed to the process and eager to help you.


Crossroad Counselling hires only interns that can provide professional services. During the interview process, they need to show that they have integrity and that they are committed to go above and beyond.
