Recovering from trauma, or any form of grief and loss, is no easy task. Living with a disability also comes with experiences of loss and trauma. You need to make sense of your daily life, your past, your identity, and your relationships all over again. Finding support, and re-evaluating life after loss and trauma can be daunting, especially when people in your life may be contributing to these challenges. Living in a multicultural society also inevitably highlights the nuances of our conflicts. Only in a safe space can we then explore our deepest worries, our racing thoughts, distressing emotions, and spiritual concerns.
We know that difficult life events can transform us, for the better or the worse. I find that an ableist culturally-sensitive holistic approach is important when trying to understanding the mind, developing self-awareness & solutions, working through emotions & making sense of them. I can be the mental, emotional & even philosophical soundboard if you need.
I offer a free 15-min consult for us to get a sense of each other. My work helps uncover more aspects of yourself (your past, your internal world & how you relate to others). By working collaboratively, I am committed towards your goals and your personal growth. As an NDIS registered counsellor, I also collaborate closely with you & your NDIS support team.
