Social worker vs. counsellor

Why a Social Worker

Choosing a mental health professional can be very confusing, especially if you are trying to understand what all the letters following counsellors’ names mean. First of all, it is important to note that the terms “counsellor”, “therapist”, and “psychotherapist” are not regulated in British Columbia. This means that anyone is able to set up a private practice and call themselves a counsellor. Yes, absolutely anyone… even if they have no education, training, or experience! 

SOCIAL WORKER is a “guarded title”, which means that it is illegal for a person to use the title unless they have completed the required training and are registered with British Columbia College of Social Workers.
