CIRCLE OF SUPPORT

Every Journey starts with a first step, glad you are here.

Counselling

I am a registered therapeutic counsellor and consultant working to support clients as they integrate mind, body, spirit, and emotions in the healing process. I am committed to compassionately help individuals in recognizing and following their body-centred intuition towards healing and living a full life. Together, let’s examine your beliefs about who you are and who you want to become.

Consulting

As the parent, YOU are your child’s best bet, and my approach is to walk alongside your experiences, supporting you to see your child through a lens that is focused on connection and attachment. Together we will walk the maze, making sense of difficult behaviours.

Presentations

Working in a group will be both informative and supportive as we bring the challenges into real time-space. Answering questions, exploring the info, and sharing experiences.

Awareness

Using the attachment-based developmental approach we will identify the underlying emotions that drive behaviour and how as adults we can support.

Acknowledge

Together we will explore the blocks that arise as you work towards becoming your child’s answer. We must be able to self-regulate before we can co-regulate. This skill is fostered through inner reflection, self-care, and attention to our own needs.

Action

Together we will develop a plan of action that explores the root of the problem while compassionately addressing troubling behaviours. We are our child’s answer.

Jodi Bergman

I work as a counsellor, parent and learning consultant, with individuals, families, adolescents, and school districts. My relational practice started as a parent of 7 children consciously integrating our family based on the threads of connection, somatic understanding, and attachment.

I am currently employed with SelfDesign Learning Community which is among the largest distance/distributed learning schools and personalized learning programs in British Columbia, Canada. Self Design enables learners to complete K-12 by exploring their interests and taking the lead in their own learning and life. With personalized guidance and ongoing support, learning unfolds at home and within local and online communities. In accordance with Self Design’s approach to learning, I facilitate the safety, acceptance, and inclusion of all learners in regard to ability, learning style, culture, gender identity and expression.

I offer in-person and online counselling supporting families and individuals across the lifespan.  Together, we will examine the context in which you live your life and the intersecting elements that influence your experiences.

I call upon Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s development model where attachment is the foundation of the emotional, physical, and social growth of the individual. My practice orients towards feminist, client-centered, strength-based, and relational-somatic approaches.

I look forward to walking beside you as you explore your being and look towards your becoming.

“Jodi has been quietly learning the work of Gordon Neufeld and integrating it into her family dynamics with her partner and their 7 children. Yes! Seven children!! Jodi is pure light and her compassion shines through as she lovingly supports families to connect and build attachments. Jodi is dedicated to bringing joy into family life and elevating the spirit of our children. Her work is a blessing.”
