Clinical Counsellor

Why I should be your counsellor/therapist 

With seven years of training and practice in counselling field at Canada, US, and UK, I have equipped with a fund of knowledge and rich practical skills of working with various mental health concerns and diverse population. I greatly value therapeutic relationships and commit to provide a safe space to my clients in which they can freely express themselves. Clients will be totally accepted as who they are. 


Issues or presenting concerns I have skills or interest in treating (E.g., approaches, modalities etc.) 

I am adept at addressing psychological concerns such as depression, anxiety, social anxiety, panic, eating disorders, trauma, identity issues, family or intimate relationships and cultural adaptation. I integrate multiple approaches based on clients’ unique needs including emotion-focused therapy, psychodynamic approach, cognitive-behavioral therapy, art therapy and mindfulness. 


What to expect after working with me 

I believe a trustworthy working alliance is therapeutic itself. Through working with me, clients will experience being fully accepted and understood by another person. Clients usually feel less distressed, more peaceful and calmer after therapy sessions. Clients will also gain insight on sources of their concerns and have a better understand of the formation and development of their psychological mind. In addition, clients will learn cognitive and behavioral skills for managing disturbing thoughts and emotions. 


What Integrative Psychology means to me

Integrative psychology is a holistic approach to treatment which believes body and mind are integrated and interconnected. I would like to explore the link between body and mind with clients and facilitate balance and well-being under the guidance of Chinese healing traditions. I will integrate different approaches and tailor the treatment to meet variety of individual needs and concerns of clients.
