I provide individual and couple counselling for adults from the age of 18 to seniors for anger issues, cross cultural issues, intimate or couple relationship issues, or women's issues in English and Mandarin Chinese. My clientele are international students, white collars, 1st or 2nd generations of Chinese immigrates, who either speak Chinese or English. My expertise is couple counselling, especially cross-racial couple counselling, as my focus on couple work is not only restricted to more transparent communication, enhancing intimacy, i also address the cultural and value aspects of couple relationship so that unspoken vocies get heard and renewed healthy way of interaction get promoted.
I believe - the client is not the problem, the problem is the problem - by externalising the problem from the client, from the relationships, we seek alliances to face the problem together, clients find it easier to deal with their issues. I adopt narrative approach from a multi-cultural perspective, while I borrow techniques from other modalities including, but not restricted to Gestalt, CBT, and mindfulness therapy for intervention and coping skills .
I am warm and compassionate, believing in good therapeutic relationship as foundation for effective counselling. Clients are expert in their life, however, they fail to identify or deny their strengths and abilities when they face too many life challenges. I will provide sufficent emotional support and help clients re-establish their confidence to cope.
