Shivani Wells-Shaw Clinical Counselling

Shivani is the Clinical Director and a Registered Clinical Counsellor at Shivani Wells-Shaw Clinical Counselling in Downtown Vancouver. Her clinical work focuses on treating symptoms related to trauma, attachment wounds, and dissociation. She has a passion for helping clients understand the root causes of their current struggles, foster attachment repair, and reclaim a sense of wholeness and aliveness after trauma.

Shivani’s approach combines EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and inner child/parts work informed by Dolores Mosquera’s and Janina Fischer’s work, the Theory of Structural Dissociation, Ego-State Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. She has advanced training in EMDR to support clients with dissociative disorders, complex trauma, depression, and chronic pain. Shivani is a new mother and has a growing interest in supporting other women+ who have crossed the threshold into parenthood and postpartum.

?Prior to becoming a Clinical Counsellor, Shivani was a yoga and meditation teacher and was in private practice as a trauma-informed yoga therapist for 11 years. Her experience with meditation, mindfulness, and movement continues to inform her work.

?Shivani aims to create a welcoming space at her clinic for clients from all walks of life. She is honoured to walk alongside her clients, hold their stories, and witness their growth and healing.
