About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling unhappy because of unfulfilling relationships in your life? As social animals, how we feel often reflect how well we are getting along with ourselves and with others.

As a relationship counsellor, I help couples and individuals think about all the relationships in life: with self, with family, with partner and with the world at large. I believe the quality of these relationships is at the centre of our life experiences, shaping our identity and affecting our ability to flourish.

I have worked with couples of diverse backgrounds and relationship issues. Even though all couple relationships go through ups and downs, when there are particularly testing circumstances or when problems seem intractable, couple counselling can be useful in working through issues and restore sense of safety and connection in the relationship. When working with couples, I focus primarily on the dynamic of emotions as the key to understand destructive patterns and disconnections but also offer practical strategies to manage stress and conflicts.

Another very important relationship is one we have with ourselves. You may have recognised that the feeling of not being good enough is holding you back from achieving goals in life. Or perhaps you have noticed you tend to avoid negative feelings and potential conflicts to the detriment of your own happiness. Exploring these issues and others may help you live more authentically, engage with the world more fully and achieve a firmer sense of purpose and well-being.

My training encompasses psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment theory, Mindfulness practice and Positive Psychology. The relationship issues I counsel my clients with range from managing anxiety and depression, developing self-confidence, dating, sexual problems, recovery from break-ups and affairs, parenting concerns and divorce and separation.

I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese.
