Michael Fedunec

MA, CPC, CCC, CPCS, CCC-S, Counselling Supervisor/Counsellor

My name is Mike and I have been the Counselling Services Supervisor at FCSS since January of 2019. I am a Certified Professional Counsellor (CPC), Canadian Certified Counsellor , Certified Professional Counsellor Supervisor (CPCS), Canadian Certified Counsellor Supervisor (CCC-S) and a registered member of the Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta (ACTA).

With over 27 years of counselling experience I have come to believe healing begins with unconditional acceptance and understanding. I offer a compassionate, respectful, and safe environment as we strive together to gain insight into your current struggles. Together we will explore how past events have shaped your beliefs and behaviors and how they are affecting current relationships and present challenges. I will always focus on the skills you already possess, and help you develop new skills and strategies. I believe in therapy that allows you to share your story without fear of judgment.

I have completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, doing a practicum with FCSS, and am a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. After completing my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta in 2006, I taught in public and private schools for about 12 years.
