Shama Zeynep, RTC – SEP Integrated Counselling, Somatic Therapies and Breathwork

Shama is a Somatic Therapist and Therapeutic counsellor with more than 15 years of experience in body-centred therapies.

Her purpose is to help individuals who are suffering from emotional, mental or physical symptoms due to difficult or traumatic events. Her work especially targets depression, anxiety, chronic pain and stress-related conditions. Shama’s focus is to help her clients build a healthier foundation in order to create new neurological pathways in their nervous system. This can make a difference in the areas of their lives where they feel blocked or are searching for support to move in a different direction and the possibility of transformation. She likes to inspire and encourage her clients to move beyond the limits of conditioning and step into a new way of being: living life with a lightness that comes from unburdening oneself, bringing more awareness, ease, and laughter!

Your Needs, Shama’s Focus:

Personalized Help for Everyone

In her journey of understanding the depth of human psychology and herself, she participated in dozens of therapy groups, workshops and she has trained in many different body-mind healing modalities. Through her many years of learning, practicing and combining eastern and western therapy methods as complementary to each other in her work, she ultimately found her unique way of working with people. Shama likes to create a custom-made session series for her clients. She believes that every nervous system is different and as a result of this difference everyone has to be approached in a different way, according to their unique needs. In her sessions she combines breath work, Somatic Experiencing® techniques, bioenergetics, bodynamics and meditation techniques for the integration of being.

Understanding Brainspotting: How Shama Uses It to Help You

Shama integrates Brainspotting into her diverse therapeutic approach, offering a powerful method to address emotional, mental, and physical challenges stemming from trauma and stress. Brainspotting works by pinpointing and processing deep neurological issues, aiding in the release of trauma and pain. This technique is effective for a range of conditions including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and stress-related symptoms.

Shama uses Brainspotting to complement her other methods, such as breathwork, Somatic Experiencing®, and meditation, tailoring each session to the unique needs of her clients. Her goal is to facilitate profound healing and transformation, helping individuals to overcome limitations and embrace a more liberated and joyful way of being.

Shama lives in Vancouver and besides her private practice, she facilitates meditation events, meditative therapy groups, breath workshops, and training. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with others all around the world.

“My goal is to help people reach their goals in life, release the old stored tensions in their system to open more space for self-regulation, self-trust and happiness. We are much too active in our minds and we can no longer experience true relaxation or meditative states. I am using all my techniques to free the system from the shackles of the busy mind and life so that we can re-learn again to drop into the space of relaxation, silence and access the real source of our beings, our true nature, which I call love!” © Shama
