About me and my therapy practice

Are your feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness or anger a result of unfulfilling relationships? Perhaps you are not happy with yourself or with the relationships in your life.

I am a relationship counsellor: I help couples and individuals improve relationships, such as those with the self, with family, with partner and with the world at large. I believe that the quality of these relationships is at the foundation of our life experiences, shaping our identity and affecting our ability to flourish.

Arguably the most important relationship is one we have with ourselves. Do you feel dissatisfied, in spite of professional and material success? Does life feel out of control, in spite of your best efforts? Or perhaps, deep down, you are not sure if you are truly 'loveable'? Exploring these issues in therapy may help you live more authentically, engage with the world more fully and achieve a firmer sense of purpose and well-being.

As a couple therapist, 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.

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.

In addition to English, I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
