About me and my therapy practice

I grew up in Taiwan, lived in Hong Kong for three years and then moved to the UK in 2007. I am particularly aware of the cultural differences between East-Asia and Europe, and cultural influences play a major part in our identities as well as in our values.


I aim to support clients in finding a way to cope with the demands of stressful modern life while maintaining a sense of your authentic self. In addition, I have a lot of experience in helping clients go through challenging times and transitions in life, especially when facing adversities or an unknown future, etc.


My latest book about psychotherapy was published in Taiwan in March 2018 (only available in Mandarin). It covers experiences of dealing with losses on personal and collective levels. Loss is an inevitable experience that, sooner or later, we all will encounter. In East-Asia culture, it is still a taboo subject to talk about. We neither know how to be with the intense emotions which are triggered by grief (such as anger, sadness, and fear...), nor could we offer empathic company to other people who are in bereavement. However, working through loss is essential for being able to feel love, connection and hope in life again.    


My training background is integrative, meaning I do not have a fixed model to work with you; instead, I aim to understand your worldview and adapt to your needs. I provide a safe, confidential, trustworthy, non-judgemental and compassionate space for you to explore issues that you find difficult to deal with. In particular, I have a strong interest in working with dreams to help you be in touch with deeper feelings, the characters which have been repressed or dissociated, or your inner resources, such as intuition or spiritual guidance. Clients are encouraged to record dreams and bring them to the therapy sessions.
