I provide individual and couple counselling for adults from the age of 18 to seniors for anxiety, depression, anger issues and traumas in English and Mandarin Chinese. My practice focus is with clients suffering from life and/or career transition, or relational issues either with parents, partners or children, or clients who find it hard either to start a relationship or maintain a relationship. In addition, I provide pre-marital counselling for young couples to help them preparing their new life with less stress and anxiety. I also provide career counselling for university students, and executives with emotion or work fatigue.
I believe - the client is not the problem, the problem is the problem - 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 treat traumas in brief therapy with Brainwork Recursive Therapy (BWRT)
My specialty is to work with Chinese immigration families whose teenage children are in trouble or crises, including depression, anxiety or anger problems and i also run parenting workshops regularly for parents of teens to help them learn to better communicate with their children to reduce mental health risk or harms.
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.
