Caring, experienced, skilled, and highly qualified. Having worked in counselling since 2009, I’ve had consistently positive client feedback. I am versatile with the types of work but especially effective in anxiety, depression and relationship work. I am well versed in both NZ and Chinese cultures.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, and couple work. I enjoy assisting clients in unpacking the core of their struggles, and providing and coaching them with new tools to cope more effectively.
I focus a lot on self work. I help clients become more aware of their emotions, thoughts and patterns, and more accepting of selves.
I also emphasize relationships, which I believe goes hand in hand with sense of self. I help clients improve their relationships through more healthy ways to relate and communicate.
I teach and coach practical tools to help cope with challenges, personal or interpersonal.
I use drawing and sandtray to facilitate exploration with the unconscious, which is powerful in helping clients unstuck.
Clients describe me as “empathetic, nonjudgmental, patient, sensitive, insightful and knowledgeable”. I draw from a variety of methods to best serve an individual’s unique needs, background, situation, and style.
I am in my 40’s with two children. Having spent nearly half of my life in NZ and married to a Kiwi, I relate very well to non-Chinese. In fact, most of my clients have been from cultures other than China.
I am currently working for a community agency and a Private Girls Secondary School. Prior to this I worked in school and University counselling practice. I have helped a lot of individuals with depression and anxiety.
I am also experienced and skilled with couples. I enjoy seeing them grow individually and as couples. A previous couple wrote to me, “You are a phenomenal counsellor. We are so thankful that you have helped us build a healthy foundation for our lives and our life together“.
