The UBC Psychology Clinic offers comprehensive psychological services for children aged between 4 to 12 years old, adults, and families. Our clinical services are provided by graduate students from UBC’s doctoral programme in clinical psychology. Student clinicians are closely supervised by Registered Psychologists from our faculty and the community.
Most of our services are offered in the form of individual therapy, however, group treatment may also be offered depending on the frequency of referrals for particular problems.
Assessment and treatment services are offered every weekday between September and April. Our services are offered on a limited basis from May to August.
