Shawna Bot – Clinical Counsellor

Shawna BotMy approach to counselling is built on warmth and acceptance. I seek to create a space that is judgment free and open to exploring whatever you bring to the table. I believe that each individual is the expert of their own lives, which means that therapy will not consist of me telling you what to do, but be a collaborative discussion around what you have seen work, or not work, in your life and how we can move towards health and wellness in light of that. Each individual who comes to therapy is unique and requires a treatment plan tailored to their needs. Therefore, I will not fit you into a prescribed method if it does not work for you. Therapy is, after all, about getting you what you need!

In order to help you achieve your wellness goals, I pull from a variety of approaches; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Strengths-Based Therapy and Attachment Therapy to name a few. Utilizing techniques from various theories allows me to have a larger toolbox to pull from in order to work with you the way you would want. While I work with a variety of clients, I have speciality training in working with couples, utilizing the Gottman Method and Emotion-Focused Therapy. I have an extensive history and passion for working with individuals who have experienced trauma, with particular emphasis on intimate partner and domestic abuse, utilizing the EMDR model to treat and process trauma.
