John Woychuk, Practicum Student Counsellor


My name is John Woychuk and I’m a counselling practicum student working with the VIU Counselling team. I have been a teacher for the past twenty-two years including teaching overseas for seven years and working as a faculty member at VIU for over a decade.

The connection between teaching and counselling for me is the joy of supporting others in their development. My life has contained a strong thread of personal and spiritual development from a young age and I enjoy bringing that thread into conversations and feeling the aliveness and energy of that exchange.

I thank the VIU Counselling team for this amazing opportunity to learn, the students of VIU for the honour of supporting them, and the Snuneymuxw people for the opportunity to live and work on their traditional territory.
