I, Sebastian Poichi Ang, have a master's degree in counselling and am registered as an RCC in British Columbia. I use predominantly solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy to work with my clients. I am flexible and open to working with all client types and challenges. However, I see more clients with anxiety, depression, and trauma issues in practice. I also work with clients facing life transition issues.
I prefer to spend more time with the client to talk about what solutions might be helpful to the client than talking about problems. I am solution and strength focused in my approach; I see myself as an agent for change in the counselling process. I engage my client in a purposeful conversation to elicit helpful information and co-construct their desired future with them. I work with the client to clarify "what matters to the client ?" When the client has identified the goals, I will support the client in working out the steps that are just right for the client to take. My best hope is to help my clients learn coping skills to get on with their lives in the most meaningful way.
I offer in-person counselling, video call counselling and telephone counselling. The default counselling language is English. However, I also speak fluent Mandarin and several other Chinese dialects such as Cantonese, Hokkien and Taiwanese. In addition, I can speak fluent Malay (Bahasa Melayu). I am of Chinese descent from Brunei Darussalam, the abode of peace (an oil-rich country in Southeast Asia). I also have a good understanding of the Chinese family's culture, values, and expectations.
I offer a free 20-minute initial consultation to help prospective clients to decide whether there is a good counsellor/client fit. I encourage you to reach out and book the no-obligation free initial consultation. You don't have to suffer alone. Help is available.
