As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Barb Rogers is knowledgeable, insightful and intuitive. Her energy and optimism are inspiring, and there are many ways she can help you move forward and make positive changes in your life. From a simple reframing of the problem, to longer term exploration of early life experiences and entrenched patterns of behaviour, Barb is able to clarify issues and find individual approaches to resolving them.
Barb has a special interest in working with adolescents as she recognizes the unique frustrations and challenges they face. Caught between the demands of parents, teachers, and friends; trying to fit in socially while establishing themselves as individuals; dealing with daily drama at school and in their social lives; feeling self-conscious and insecure; needing both freedom and responsibility; and experiencing ever changing relationships, the teen years can be very difficult. Barb offers current information to youth and provides mentorship to help them learn important life skills.
Parenting doesn’t have to be a headache! In fact, there is much joy to be discovered along the way. Understanding behaviour is the key to successfully managing the more difficult times, and knowing what is going on emotionally, physically, and developmentally can save you from experiencing a lot of unnecessary frustration. Counselling can be a valuable resource in navigating the ups and downs of parenting. From offering innovative parenting ideas to helping you manage extremely challenging behavior, Barb can provide the support you are looking for.
Group Counselling & Workshops
I love working with groups! There is a very special interaction that takes place in groups that can’t be replicated in individual sessions. Since it can be said that all problems are social problems, what better way to seek solutions than within a social setting? You learn about yourself and you learn about each other; you benefit from your own experience, and you benefit from the experience of others. Barb has developed several groups and workshops to offer support and guidance in this dynamic setting.
