Transformative Therapy is a special sanctuary for men and women. This is a safe, trusting, and inclusive space for you to share your concerns, challenges or complex situations in confidence. Past experiences can impact our thoughts, our actions, and all our relationships. It can feel lonely in your world as you try to navigate through the confusion & challenges. I support you closely with each step as we explore what it means to be you in your experience. I assist you through deep empathy in accessing your strengths & skills to begin transforming your life into one which is meaningful and fulfilling to you.

Change is never easy, and neither is it easy to be stuck in the patterns that are keeping you from achieving the life you want for yourself. Whether you are struggling with a mental health condition and want to live symptom free or you are trying to achieve a life with more confidence to pursue your dreams, it starts with realising the need for a change. It requires bravery and strength to create those changes. Having a supportive, empathetic and knowledgeable, professional by your side can make the process more manageable and less isolating. It is important to find a professional who can understand your unique perspective.
I am a bilingual (English and Chinese 普通话) counsellor specialise in helping adults and adolescent clients that experience depression, anxiety, grief and loss, culture differences, and relationship difficulties.
25 years of counselling experience really does make a difference. Having worked with thousands of clients I can recognise what’s happening for you faster. Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma, trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & sensorimotor art therapies (Guided Drawing & Clay field therapy) to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.
Our approach to relationship counselling assumes that what occurs in your relationship is co-created. When we shift from “your story versus mine”, we move from a focus on the individual to “the between” of your relationship. As you may have experienced, relationship patterns repeat, the same ideas and themes keep knocking on the door. With the support of your therapist you are invited to explore “the between”, to engage in a process that helps you to understand how you got here and to begin to experience your relationship differently.
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.

I have a deep interest and expertise in couples therapy or work with any two people in relationship conflict. This is an area of therapy that is deep, wild and transformative. I love to find a door to walk through to re-ignite the aliveness that can be lost in the universal struggle of life, by finding an open hearted way to listen and wrestle with the layers of hurt and pain, and to re-connect and honour the space between. It is a bold step that couples must take, but it is a journey that is met with rich reward.
