Sol Mogerman M. Sc. is a Registered Clinical Counsellor in private practice in Victoria, British Columbia.  He is a counselor on the staff of Cogni Care Inc., teaches counseling at City University, Vancouver Island Campus, and is the author of “Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear (Inside Brain Injury)”, “The Story of Jude (A Guide to Rehabilitation Counseling)”, and two books of cartoons.  Sol is also the creator of two counselling theories: “Bilateral Barrier Theory” and “Shape Therapy” that acknowledge and support the primary role of “Life Force” in the healing process.

My counseling practice is built upon the belief that the impulse to heal is innate, always present, and accessible through the conscious understanding and practical use of responsible counseling theory, tools, and attitudes in human relationship.   I am devoted to the encouragement and strengthening of that impulse in all aspects of my personal and professional associations with others.

Papers & Theories


The Discovery and Use of Shape Therapy
Presented at Counseling in the 21st Century Fourth International Conference
Vancouver, B.C., Canada, 1994

Before I embark on any discussion of therapeutic intervention, I want to “give credit where credit is due”.  I would therefore like to give this credit to the “inner healer” which is built into our physical, emotional, and spiritual self.

Bilateral Barrier Theory Includes Charts "Figure 1, Figure2 & Figure 3"
In order to describe a useful definition of trauma and what counsellors can do to facilitate the innate ability to heal, I believe it is necessary to first acknowledge the presence of an energizing force found in all life.  There are many scientific and religious explorations of this phenomenon, but no universally accepted definition.
