Insight Psychological Therapists - Cody Cobler

Cody Cobler, Registered Provisional Psychologist, B.Sc, MC, (He/Him)

I believe that life happens fast, and that every person carries their own personal experiences. I understand that reaching out for support can feel extremely vulnerable, and that it takes a lot of courage. In my experience, there can be a lot of shame and stigma surrounding asking other people for help when things aren’t going well.

I also believe that everyone has strengths, and the ability to create meaningful change in their own lives. I see my role, as a therapist, as someone who can help people see this in themselves and support them in finding ways to make these positive changes happen.

Please note that Cody can work with children aged 10 and up and younger school age children upon request. 

More About Cody Cobler

I have a Masters in Counseling from City University of Seattle’s Edmonton Campus, and Bachelor of Science in Honours Psychology from MacEwan University. My current research interests are the ways that technology and the online community impact mental health I have been working in education and mental health for the last decade, and have experience working with populations with a large variety of diagnoses, and in areas such as trauma, social and interpersonal skills, self-esteem, self-regulation, self-harm, and bullying.

When working with clients, I utilize an eclectic approach, and incorporate strategies from a variety of treatment modalities. Although I strongly utilize a client centered and cognitive behavioural approach, I don’t believe there is a one size fits all approach for therapy so I tailor my approach individually for each person; I think everyone is unique, and that their journey in therapy should reflect this. I also believe that creating a relationship is an essential component of effective therapy and understand that trust is something that needs to be built throughout the therapeutic process.

I also view therapy as a collaborative journey, and that clients are the experts on their own lives, so it only makes sense to have their input and wisdom as part of the experience. I believe in a practical, evidence and skill-based hands-on approach to counselling, and that humor and seeing the silver lining can be an essential part of dealing with life’s adversities.


What is your favourite quote?

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves” or “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”. I think this is a great metaphor for life.

What do you think the world needs more of?

I think the world needs more people to slow down. I find we all get so busy trying to make a living that we lose sight of the more important things in life, like connecting with people and enjoying the time we have.
