Areas of Practice:
Employee assistance program (EAP), Face to face counselling, Telehealth, Critical Incident, Onsite Counselling

My years of study and practice in the counselling profession have filled me with gratitude and humbleness, as I continue to be amazed by the intricacy of human beings, their personal stories, emotions, and the challenges life throws at them. It is an immense privilege to accompany someone, as their fellow traveller, on their journey of self-discovery, which may lead to a more honest and authentic life.

Following a person-centred approach, I incorporate various approaches in practice, such as emotion-focused/ experiential approaches, and narrative therapy, with an integration of mindfulness. I also tend to understand people’s struggles within a broader systematic and developmental context, with an emphasis on therapeutic dynamics, attachment, individual strength and inner resources.

If we have the opportunity to meet during a counselling session, I would like to get to know you as a whole person. You may currently feel overwhelmed by challenges or difficulties, but these are the very things that have inspired you to seek alternatives. I applaud your courage, and the light within. We may take on a journey and see where it may lead.
