My name is Robbie Shaw, I earned a B.A. in Psychology and a M.Ed. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Lethbridge. I offer counselling that is person-centered and grounded in a core belief that every person has the capacity for meaningful change, growth, and healing. My intention is to empower clients to make meaning of their past, cultivate personal insight, and develop the strength and strategies to overcome life’s challenges.
My therapeutic style includes acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness techniques, performance psychology, and psychoanalysis. When appropriate, I take a strengths-based and solutions-focused approach. I do my best to create an environment conducive to change by using evidence-based practices that best suit the specific needs and distinct worldview of the client.
I have experience working with people in addiction recovery, in a corrections facility, and recovering from car accidents and significant workplace injuries. I also have extensive experience in sport as a player, instructor, coach, and sport psychology consultant.
