Dr Sally Barros

Dr. Barros has had her own private practice since 1992. Although Dr. Barros’ initial area of therapeutic interest was children, for the past fifteen years she has worked primarily with adults and couples. While people’s issues vary, major concerns include depression, anxiety and interpersonal difficulties. As well, Dr. Barros’ had developed expertise in the administration and provision of employee assistance programs, providing short term and crisis counseling to employees and consultation with management.

Dr. Barros uses a variety of therapeutic approaches and is know for her use of hypnotherapy as an adjunct to other methods. Dr. Barros sees therapy as an educational process where clients are helped to understand their own ineffective patterns of behaving; and learn new, more effective ways of coping.

Before moving to private practice, she had a varied professional experience including working at a mental health clinic, a rehabilitation hospital and with a community college. While at the community college, she both taught and developed courses; and for three years, Dr. Barros was the director of the College's daycare. She has also been a consultant with the provincial government in the area of policy development.

Dr. Barros has a Ph.D. from the University of Alberta, and has been an active member on both community and professional Boards. She is particularly proud of being the President of the Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis - Alberta division from 1996 - 1997, and President of the Psychologists Association of Albera from 2004 - 2006. She has presented numerous workshops throughout her career and has presented expert witness testimony on over 50 occasions.
