I work with adults to support them with a range of issues relating to identity, mood, anxiety, emotional regulation and interpersonal issues. Using a developmental focus, I work with people to consider how challenges have developed and where they want to be in the future. A key part of my practice is affirming people's identities, whether this relates to neurodiversity, gender, sexuality, relationship types, race and/or other factors. This ensures that we build towards goals that are determined by the person and align with who they are.

Couples come to me often feeling that the constant arguing is wearing them down, that they are at the bottom of their partner’s priority list, or that they feel more like roommates rather than lovers. Others complain of constant bickering, walking on eggshells around each other, or living like ships in the night. I also see couples for pre-marital counselling and specific problems such as sexual difficulties, infidelity, money, in-laws, addictions and parenting. In working together we will build insights into patterns that are no longer serving you, and develop action so we can move you from stuck to thriving again.

Psychotherapist
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy adheres to a case-by-case perspective. Namely, to the assumption that every individual is unique and requires a different course of treatment. The basic working hypothesis is that every analysis is different in its content, in its trajectory, in its frequency and duration. Through the act of free association one speaks freely about anything that comes to mind and engages the issues brought up in depth. The trajectory of treatment is directed by the speech of free association, along with the analyst's interpretations, toward the singular truth of one's symptoms and their subsequent alleviation.

Sometimes we require a helping hand when adjusting to an ever-changing world. I want to help you develop skills and tools to create sustainable fulfilment within your life. Common challenges we all face include issues with self-esteem, processing negative or strong emotions, work-life balance, adjusting to change, developing meaningful relationships, and discovering our purpose. In addition, stress, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and interpersonal conflict can obstruct our ability to experience life to its fullest potential. You have the ability to unlock your own power, and I want to help you discover that inner strength.

Everyone is on a different journey and we all have our own struggles and stories to tell. I specialised in working with adults, teenagers, and children (6-12y-o) to identify their inner core strengths, maximising their potentials, skills, and abilities to strive for a well-balanced life. I was born in Borneo, identify as gay , and I have experience living in different countries and cultures. My lived experience has filled me with compassion and empathy, and these strengths allow me to connect with individuals on a deeper level regardless of their backgrounds. I speak fluently in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Indonesian, Hakka etc.

Proud member of LGBTQIA +.
We have all been affected by the state of the world in recent years. In combination with the challenges of every day life many of us have moved out of our window of tolerance leaving our nervous systems feeling taxed. Relieving stress can be a process of disengaging from negative patterns and feedback loops while re-engaging with crucial resources. That being said, stress has a physical quality to it and learning to release it from our bodies by leading a more present, mindful and embodied life day by day is an important and often overlooked part of the process.
