Srolic Barber

Three beliefs that colour the way I work with my clients:

I believe…

That there is nothing more human than asking for help.

I believe…

That every moment is an opportunity to do what is meaningful or important to us.

I believe…

In the redemptive power of pizza.

Get to know me

My secret talent:
Still back-flipping into the pool at 32.

What’s it like to be in a room with me?
My clients describe my counselling room as relaxed and comforting, a place where they feel supported and listened to, and yet gently challenged to move towards their goals and the kind of person they want to be.

My life motto:
Who do you want to be when you grow up right now?

My background and experience

With footprints in metropolitan cities, developing countries, and remote townships, I have more than ten years of formal and informal counselling experience, tutoring and mentoring teenagers to gain practical life skills, supporting individuals through grief and loss, and helping people to tackle their anxiety, build their confidence, and find clarity and meaning in their lives.
