My Approach to Helping

Everyone has their unique story, and all stories are worth being heard and understood with no judgment but genuine acceptance and presence. With the right therapeutic environment, people can find their ways to outgrow from the stuck point that they face in different stages of life.

Due to the high demand, I was given the opportunity to gain substantial and consistent amount of counselling experiences on a daily basis in the past few years. Having the experiences and training in dealing with clients who struggle with complex psychological issues from various age groups have taught me the importance of continuous learning from the professionals as well as the clients. I believe that there is no one intervention that can fit all clients for everyone of you is unique in your own way. This belief has guided me to be humble and attentive to all the stories that have been unheard and neglected in people's lives.

Holding a firm value on do-no-harm and keeping myself equipped in the mental health field, I have attended training and workshops as well as supervision on complex traumas, severe mood disturbances such as depression and anxiety, grief and loss, family and couples issues, behavioral issues, suicidal and homicidal tendencies and also sexual and gender-based violence. . Incorporating these experiences and skills adopted from different modalities such as Choice Theory Reality Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, and Relational and Systemic Therapy, I am grateful to have transformed and touched many lives.

It is such a touching moment to bear witness how clients have transformed from not being able to function in their daily lives, from losing hope, feeling overwhelmed and devastated to feeling empowered as a person, establishing a healthier sense of self and finally finding meaning in life to continue striving again. It touches me when family reunites; when couple restores their broken vows or promises; when adults find what they want and where they belong; when children and teen grow healthily in their mental well-being; when individual finds peace, acceptance and forgiveness towards others and self. This is why I am here to serve you.

Groups I Work With

    Starting since 2016, I ventured my journey in counselling and psychotherapy field with adults who struggle with intense and complicated psychological condition resulting from post trauma such as violence (verbal, physical, emotional, financial), depression, grief and loss, suicidal or homicidal ideations. All these have interconnectedly affected their relationships with others such as spouse, children as well as colleagues and friends. I later on have further ventured into helping children, teens and young adults who present with behavioral and emotional struggles through family therapy, forming a resilient and supportive system together with the family to help the development of the children, teens and young adults.
