Meet Shannon Azzarello

Hi, I’m Shannon.

I’d like to give you a warm welcome to Kind-Natured Psychotherapy! Reaching out for support from a psychotherapist can be a big step, but it says a lot about your bravery. I’d be honoured to be part of your journey by providing in-person therapy services for infidelity, anxiety, depression and more in Peterborough, and virtual therapy appointments online.

I hold an MA and am a Registered Psychotherapist (CRPO #11110), and focus on providing professional therapy services for infidelity, anxiety, people pleasing, and anything else you might need guidance on. My goal is to work with you to help you find peace, understanding, and your inner values in a safe, supportive environment.  I also have additional training in Gottman Level 1 & 2, EMDR, and APSATS (Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model for Partners of Porn/Sex Addicts).

I absolutely love my work and feel privileged to embark on this transformative journey with my clients. Here’s to growth, healing, and lots of shared smiles along the way!  I draw inspiration from some incredible therapists like Carl Rogers, Sue Johnson, John & Julie Gottman and Peter Levine, who have shaped my approach to therapy.

I believe in keeping life simple and living each day true to my values, which are:

  • Authenticity
  • Empathy
  • Kindness
  • Balance
  • Autonomy
  • Compassion
