Jodi Bergman Counselling

I work as a counsellor, parent and learning consultant; with individuals, families, adolescents, and school districts. I am a member of the Neufeld Institute and have worked with Dr. Neufeld’s approach for many 
years. Living in the Kootenays with my partner, and 7 children where together we are consciously integrating our family based on the threads of connection, somatic understanding, and attachment.

As well 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 support the safety, acceptance, and inclusion of all learners in regard to ability, learning style, culture, gender identity and expression.
