Psychodynamic Psychotherapy & Trauma Responsive Counselling

Meet Amelia

Meet Mark Shelvock,
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Establishing a relationship with the hidden or unconscious aspects of your mind (psyche) and body (soma) can help you learn how to live with your deepest emotional wounds, while also offering you the opportunity to discover vitality, freedom, and joy.

I can support you in learning how to lean into your pain and grow your edges so that you can express yourself more authentically. 

I help individuals reach their full potential by integrating psychodynamic psychotherapy, attachment theory, jungian psychology (dream interpretation), somatic experiencing, neuroscience, and expressive arts therapy. 

My clinical expertise is in issues relating to human development and its interruption. I am deeply passionate about facilitating restorative and expansive post-traumatic growth.
