Meet Bex Troock
she/her/hers

Hi, I’m Bex and I’m honoured that you are considering inviting me into your journey towards self inquiry, compassion and belonging.

First, I’d like to respectfully acknowledge that I live and practice on the unceded territory and ancestral lands of the Syilx Peoples. Alongside this recognition, I practice in a way that not only acknowledges but also actively works to mitigate intergenerational and intersectional inequities through advocacy and community engagement. This work is continuous and reflexive.

I believe healing is possible when we are able to be curious about, explore, learn from our triggers and emotional pain without shame and self-judgement. Through the Compassionate Inquiry lens, I have learned that trauma “shapes our lives. It shapes the way we live, the way we love and the way we make sense of the world. It is the root of our deepest wounds.” Essentially, trauma manifests as a disconnect from the self, and oftentimes, from our gut feelings and innate inner wisdom. That means that my work is in assisting and guiding you back to your authentic and whole selves. Our pain and struggle often requires an attuned witness to hold a space of genuine warmth and nurturance and THAT is the backbone of my professional philosophy. In addition to these attributes, my practice modalities and clinical approaches are evidence-based and ethically sound. I believe, deeply, in the power of somatic, body-based approaches and modalities.

Areas of Focus: Trauma (PTSD/CPTSD); Adverse Childhood Experiences; Anxiety; Depression; Strengths; Resilience; Mindfulness; Grief; Forgiveness; Shame; Emotional regulation; Communication; Self compassion; Addiction; Radical acceptance.

Integrated Approaches: EMDR; Relational Psychodynamic; Compassionate Inquiry; Somatic Experiencing; CBT/DBT; ACT

In my practice, I often draw from the works of: Gabor Mate; Francine Shapiro; Daniel J. Siegel; Peter A. Levine; Bessel van der Kolk; Brene Brown; Kristin Neff; Joe DIspenza; Russell Kennedy; Pema Chodron; A.H. Almaas; Tara Brach, Emma McAdam; Don Miguel Ruiz; Eckhart Tolle; Beck Institute; Richard Schwartz; Yolanda Renteria; Andrew Huberman; Alexis Florentina Borja; Judith Herman; Daniel Goleman; Mel Robbins; Andrew Leeds; Brianna Wiest; Diego Perez (Yung Pueblo); and, Diane Poole Heller.


I hold a Master’s Degree in clinical Social Work, and am a Registered Social Worker with the British Columbia College of Social Workers. I have completed trauma-focused certificate programs in Compassionate Inquiry (240hr) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Basic. Currently, I am enrolled in Peter Levine's (Ph.D) body-oriented therapeutic model, Somatic Experiencing, Intermediate Level. I am currently a volunteer for Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelics Canada (MAPS Canada Podcast '21).

As Peter Levine, author of, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, famously said, "I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening—a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation."


It’s almost always the case that whatever has wounded you will also be instrumental in your healing. I am here to offer you a safely guided exploration of your emotional suffering. We are not meant to do this deep inner work alone and I would be honoured to walk alongside you.

*Please note: I do not offer Couples/Marriage Counselling and only work with adult populations.

*80min and 210min (half-day intensives) sessions only.
