Life Therapist & Certified Yoga Teacher
Colette Barras met Dr. Soliman 20 years ago when she was working in Obstetrics in the hospital. At that time, he asked her if she would like to provide counseling to his patients at NewLife. Since then, Colette has been providing therapy to couples and individuals experiencing infertility. If you were to ask Colette why she gets out of bed every morning with a sense of purpose and anticipation, her answer would be: “I love walking alongside people during their most vulnerable times and being able to provide them with hope and practical strategies to navigate their journey in life”.
Colette is passionate about providing evidence-based therapies to her patients and making tools and skills easily understood. Colette has her Masters Degree in Social Work and training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness/Meditation and is a Certified Yoga Instructor. She has also recently completed training in Yoga-CBT for Anxiety to provide complete relief for the mind and body.
Colette has a unique ability to build trusting, therapeutic relationships with individuals and couples, empowering them to regain control over their lives while building a toolkit of strategies that will enable them to manage through the challenges of infertility.
When Colette isn’t working, she loves spending time with her family and going for long hikes with her 2 Labrador retrievers, Daisie and Jersey.
