Counselling/Therapy Services

People come to counselling for a variety of reasons - to understand thoughts and feelings; to explore current and past experiences; to develop effective coping strategies; to improve relationships and interact more effectively with others; to identify what has meaning and discover new pathways. 

Everyone deserves to experience empathy, acceptance and to know their own value. Experienced in working with a diversity of cultures and sexual orientations. I work both short and long term. I am able to see clients of all ages over 10 years old. In essence my role as a counsellor is to facilitate healing in a way that enhances self empowerment, wellness and interconnectedness with life. 

 

Counselling/Therapy Approach

Every person has their own unique story, a different set of needs, aspirations, personal struggles and strengths. Highly effective psychodynamic holistic counsellor while offering practical life skills. I provide an integrated counselling approach drawing on different modalities dependent on individual needs for support. For instance CBT, mindfulness, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Narrative, DBT, ACT, Strengths based and Person centred.

Background and Experience

I am a first generation Chinese New Zealander born and raised in Gisborne. Culturally aware, I have a strong sense of justice and fairness. I come from a broad working background encompassing teaching in secondary schools; hospitality; arts and film industry. Integral to this is a love of working with people, their respective communities and the diversity this brings. 

My counselling practice includes working with adolescents predominantly in schools; adults through external services and private practice. I also have experience in group facilitation, running restoratives and collaborating on programs to develop skills in resilience and learning for young people. Currently, I am focussing on private practice and contract work.
