Shauna Paynter- Registered Clinical Counsellor
As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, I support individuals experiencing generalized anxiety, post-traumatic stress syndrome, grief and depression using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). This empirically-proven method of intervention focuses on discovering and understanding your values. We then refine these down to your CORE values and it is from here that we base your goals and actions.
How will your life be different after seeing me?
- Ability to accept and make space for your anxiety and other difficult emotions.
- Clarity during decision making- doing what is right for you and staying true to who you are despite difficult circumstances.
- Knowing exactly what your core values are, what you stand for and why.
- The ability to create meaningful personal goals and take effective action toward those goals.

Mindfulness training is a big part of ACT, which effectively addresses issues of emotional regulation, self-regulation including the Pause, Notice, Accept what might be flowing through us in any given moment. Tools for dealing with crisis situations or overwhelming anxiety are covered and practiced.
