About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for your interest in my private practice. Currently I am offering individual online counselling to clients in Europe. Since qualifying in 2005, I have worked in a variety of settings such as University counselling centre, EAP schemes, secondary school, mental health rehabilitation center and medical service. 

I work intensively with the following issues:

Anxiety: general anxiety, social anxiety, phobia, panic attack, OCD, procrastination, constant restlessness, unable to relax

Low self-esteem: self doubt, sensitivity to rejection and criticism, perfectionism, lack of assertiveness, easily feel guilty

Stress: work stress, study stress

Trauma: one time event trauma or developmental trauma

Expat Issue: severe cultural shock, difficulties with relationship/family due to immigration/oversea study

Bereavement & loss: health, family members

Feeling sad, loneliness, hopeless, powerless, empty, oppressed, isolated

Relationship: affairs and betrayals, drawn to same type of unhealthy relationship repetitively and/or can not walk away from it

My client work is informed by various theories, including CBT, humanistic, and existential approaches. I also adopt and integrate other elements, such as solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, attachment theory, defensive mechanisms, and trauma-informed therapy. 

In our session together, you will have a safe environment to express your feelings and thoughts bottled up in your mind without the worry of being judged - we all took different external and internal journeys to the place where we are now, I'm here to support, not to judge.

I'll be there to help you become more aware of the choices you have and develop a greater sense of ownership with yourself and your life, instead of drowning in the loop of your thoughts and being overwhelmed by your emotions.

I have a multicultural background, Chinese origin but have lived in U.S, U.K, Spain for more than ten years. I take equal opportunities seriously and embrace the principles of diversity. 

Practice description

Online Session

*Please note that at the moment I am only able to offer online session for clients in UK

I have been providing online(audio/video) counselling for years. It helps save time and money for many clients and works as great as face-to-face therapy.

For clients who are not familiar with online therapy, I offer initial consultation to test if you will feel comfortable or not in an online setting. Many clients, in fact, came with doubts but ended up with very positive experience.

Having a session online is different to, but not inferior to face-to-face therapy.Researches have shown that online counselling works as effectively as therapy in person, while in practice, it could show more advantages. It provides those who, maybe because of phobia or depression or disability, have difficulty stepping outside their home or find traveling extremely distressing a chance to access support and service.

In other cases, one can be free from squeezing in public transportation or traffic, trying to catch the counselling session at the other side of the city anxiously, which sometimes already drains your energy before you start the session. Meanwhile, a one-hour session can be a lot easier to fit in your tight schedule than a three-hour trip. If you were already struggling with anxiety and restlessness, travelling stress is probably the last thing you want to add on.

Other than these, many people have found that having therapy at their place allow them to feel safer and in control. Especially when they have sessions in the environment that they have their daily struggle, it becomes very natural to connect with their deep feelings and I also get the opportunity to sense their difficulties in a more direct way.

For years, I have been able to develop deep emotional bonds, insights and go on incredibly internal journeys with many people around the world, even when we never met in person.

All you need is a smart phone or a computer with internet and I will guide you through the rest.



My first session

The initial consultation/assessment session would be a chance for us to know each other a bit better before making the decision to carry out counselling or not. You can tell me what is troubling you at the moment and your expectation of our work together and I will introduce my method of working in details and assess if I can meet your expectation of the service. 

Before/during the initial consultation/assessment session, we will be using a few psychometric inventories and semi-structured intake to help eveluate your current status and your preference of the counselling to help you make decision.

You do not need to commit any further sessions by coming to the consultation, only when you decide to carry on having counselling with me, your slot will be blocked out especially for you. Normally each session lasts 50 minutes and is usually on a weekly basis. A gentle reminder here: if you can not show up for the session scheduled, please give me at least 48 hours notice to reschedule or cancel. Full fees will apply with any notice shorter than that, except absolute emergency. .
