Life is difficult... This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. Everyone is on a different journey and we all have our own struggles and stories to tell. I would like to support you throughout this journey together! I have extensive experience working with people from all walks of life, helping individuals to identify their inner strengths, maximising their potentials and abilities to strive for success throughout their life journey. I'm very approachable, gentle, non-judgmental, honest, and empathetic. I'm a proud gay man, born and bred in Borneo, and I have experience living in different countries before coming to AUS.
I'm a Registered Psychotherapist and Mental Health Social Worker with more than 10 years of professional work experience in psychotherapy, counselling, LGBTIQA+ support, and community work. My lived experience from a culturally diverse background has equipped me with unique skills and knowledge when working with clients from all walks of life.
I'm down to earth, honest, reliable, and practical in my approach to counselling and psychotherapy. I'm dedicated to encouraging people to take greater responsibility for the long-term functioning and health of their minds. I can communicate fluently in 6 languages. Please feel free to get in touch for a chat. Thank you. (NOTE: Medicare rebate available)
