About me and my therapy practice

(My offices are in N1 & W6)

Eudaimonia (Ευδαιμονια in Greek philosophy), whose Latin translation is Beata Vita (Happy Life), is an ancient term equivalent to Optimal Mental Health.

Also, the concept of Nirvana in Buddhism means the same thing.

How, then, can we attain Eudaimonia/Nirvana?

By means of right living, correct way of life, or authentic way of being in the world with others.

What is the right way of life?

Pursuing Ethical Values, such as Truth, Wisdom, and Humility – in other words, becoming more truthful, wiser, and humbler.

If growing in Truth, Wisdom, and Humility means something for you, then you have found the right person to be your fellow traveller.

I am tri-lingual (English, British Sign Language, and Korean).

Due to my hearing difficulty, I use a microphone/transmitter and a receiver when I work with hearing clients. For d/Deaf clients I use BSL and/or lipreading, while for d/Deaf-and-Blind clients Hands on signing. I offer online counselling only to BSL users.

About me and my therapy practice

Dear Supervisees

Here is some information regarding what to expect from me as a supervisor:

1) I have got a Phd in philosophy, and it has shaped how I integrate the Existential/CBT/Philosophical idea of ‘worldview’/‘schema’/‘internal working model’ and the Object Relations Theory (ORT) in psychodynamic. Also, I can easily work exclusively in Phenomemological-Existential approach.

Note that the tenet of the ORT that there are many selves in ‘me’ originates from the philosopher Plato via Freud. Also, there are striking similarities between CBT and philosophy, in terms of thought, feeling, and action/behaviour: these are trinitarian.

2) In understanding the client the application of hermeneutic circle (i.e., a dialogical relation between the part and the whole in texts: we have to refer to the whole to understand the parts and the parts to understand the whole [e.g. in understanding sentences and the words within them]) is crucial. This is to say that I always endeavour to understand a client in a wider context of that client in terms of, e.g., relationship, environment, sexuality, etc.

3) While working with clients (even for assessment), I often explain the rationale for my interventions. This helps clients to understand how I work, to become more reflective, and to avoid the situation of getting stuck.

4) I have regularly been treating a wide range of mental health issues with a good number of client contact hours (both short-term & long-term) every week.
