My services are available for couples, adults of all ages, teenagers of 16 years and are suitable for queer people.
Integrative psychotherapy is delivered interpersonally and is well suited for individuals and couples with developmental and/or relational trauma and neglect. I'm warm in my approach and endeavour to create a collaborative and attuned therapeutic relationship, one which prioritises an experience of feeling safe and understood. I hold a strong perspective that psychotherapy has dynamic potential for change and well-being, with this perspective being continually reinforced through my own continued journey, research and training.

I work with adolescents and adults who are experiencing challenges with how they relate to themselves, others and their environment. I value my clients as unique individuals and aim to foster a sense of hope, determination and resilience in people to make positive changes in their lives in whatever capacity is meaningful to them. I work a lot with people to help them identify, manage and regulate difficult emotions. This also involves a deeper understanding of emotional reactions and an opportunity to benefit from learning from past experiences.

I work with adults who are experiencing Anxiety, Panic attacks, OCD, Depression, Low Self -Esteem, Acute and Chronic stress, Burnout and Trauma. My approach is to: (1) Understand the client as well as the environments in which they function (2) Teach clients effective techniques and coping strategies (3) Build strong skills to create sustainable change. Many people have seen various therapists throughout their lifetimes. Often they find themselves relapsing back to the same problems. Clients who undertake counselling with me will be guided on how to change long standing patterns of negative behaviours and progress forward.

I chiefly treat trauma & Autistic adults (diagnosed or undiagnosed), initially looking at relationships, emotions & productivity.
Many people sometimes struggle to understand their emotions and behaviour - maybe they get angry too easily, or become upset for no apparent reason. Other people are often well aware of why they need some mental health support, due to historical and / or current problems. I always ask clients: "What do you want to be different in your life when our work is done?" The client's answer may be specific or vague, surprising or long-known to them. Either way, I can help you answer those and many other questions - but only if you truly want to overcome the mental health challenges that stop you from behaving like the person you want to be.

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.

My approach to treatment takes its direction from experience, both in the lived sense and specifically in terms of psychoanalysis (having undergone an analysis and formation as an analyst). My practice pays particularly close attention to the person him or herself, the dynamic cultivated in the session, and am far less interested in peripheral issues such as diagnosis.

Managing stress and changing behaviour is a complex matter. It can be even tougher when you try to do it alone. My clients are looking for the tools to manage their situation effectively and bring about positive behaviour change and improved performance. The people I work with want the power that comes from combining the best elements of coaching, positive psychology with the best therapeutic practices, including both traditional and state of the art methods. They want both coaching support and clinical expertise to help them cope, build their resilience and ultimately thrive across a range of complex situations and experiences.

In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging and growth of confidence in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!
