Alive Counselling: Barb Egan

Counselling in Kelowna, British Columbia and Online Counselling

Welcome to Alive Counselling 🙂

I’m Barb Egan:

Owner | Registered Clinical Counsellor | Therapist

Hi, I’m Barb Egan. I offer online counselling and am a counsellor in Kelowna, British Columbia specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT. I help people of all walks of life understand & overcome their “stuff”, such as anxiety, stress, depression, & negative self-talk, and improve confidence & coping skills.

I believe nobody is perfect,  & everybody is welcome.


As a former elite athlete & coach, I specialize in supporting athletes and other high performers in their mental health and mental game to optimize their performance and enjoyment.

I have worked with university students and staff across the United States and Canada for over 10 years.

As a wife and mama, I also walk with people to help with relationships, couples counselling, and mental health care for women and moms, including postpartum depression and anxiety.

I believe we all have “stuff” & can benefit from counselling.

I am passionate about coming alongside of
you wherever you are, because all we can do is start where we are.

Barb Egan- Alive Counselling-Kelowna Counsellor- Anxiety Counsellor- Sports Psychology

Hi, I’m Barb.

Hi, I’m Barb. I work with a variety of individuals from athletes and university students to professionals, couples and parents.

As an online counsellor and a counsellor in Kelowna, British Columbia,  I specialize in helping you overcome anxiety, stress, and depression among others “issues” holding you back. We all have “stuff” in our lives that we would like to change. We work through understanding where our “stuff” comes from so it does not continue to resurface and re-trigger, as well as learn practical coping strategies to overcome it.

As a former elite hockey player & coach, I also specialize in supporting an athlete’s and team’s mental training for optimized performance in your sport and in your life.

I facilitate Speaking Events for Teams, Groups and Organizations, consulting on various mental health topics to optimize your group’s leadership, team-building, mental health, and performance.

From a former elite athlete and coach, to a wife and mother, and now a registered clinical counsellor, I understand the importance of mental health in the game of life. Although my background is in hockey, these skills are transferable to other arenas of life to help you discover and reach your full potential.

I’d be honoured to work with you to overcome whatever obstacles you are facing to help you truly come alive. Showing up can be the hardest part. And you’ve already done that; you’re here.

If you’d like, you can read a little more about my story here 🙂

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come Alive.
