My Approach to Helping

Counselling help individual to make better life choices and to move forward in their life. Sometime for some client, counselling help them to find that missing puzzle in their life and for some to find their authentic self, inner peace, or to cope and to manage better whatever issues they are going thru. etc. I attuned my approach based on clients’ needs and work on from there.

A therapy session with me, means a session of support, emphatic, and a non-judgmental, therapeutic safe space for you to explore and express yourself freely. So, let’s take the first step in your healing journey. Allow me to walk the journey with you.

“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.”
Rumi

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am passionate about helping individual to work thru their issues especially traumas, distressing childhood memory, stress, burnout, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attack as well as PTSD.

On top of seeing individual client, I also work with EAP (employee assistance programme) in the capacity of counselling, critical incident stress management as well as giving talk and webinar on mental wellbeing.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Generally, in life there will be moment that we got stuck and things seems to go haywire. What we need is a lift to unstuck us and put us on the correct path again, and this is where counselling or therapy can help.

During pandemic, it?s quite common to see client struggle due to the pandemic that impacted their mental wellbeing. Counselling help client to manage their emotional regulation and navigate their life to be back on track again.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

With the current battle against the pandemic, I find myself forced to adapt to many changes and challenges as an individual as well as a therapist and this had push me out of my own comfort zone. This made me relate well to client that impacted due to the pandemic itself. With the wonders of technology, am able to provide psychological support to client from the comfort and safety of each other home.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Over the years I learned a lot from client and one great thing I learned is that going to therapy does not mean you are weak or flawed. It takes a lot of courage, determination and hard work to explore and move forward for client. In fact, along the journey, we learned to accept self even with some flaws, its ok and that is what make life worth living and we are unique and special in our own way.

At times, am amazed by some client who dive in and work at the roots of their issue, and work hard in their healing journey. If that is not courage, what could it be.
