It is hard to stop yourself from worrying. When you do worry about something in particular, like work or health, you can’t control that worry, and so it spreads, becoming worry about other things. You feel it in your body too: you are restless, tense, on edge. . . . You often feel tired. And this makes work or study even harder to deal with—it’s hard to stay focused and sometimes your mind just blanks out. You might also find yourself becoming irritable. Your sleep might be disturbed in some way too, leaving you feeling even more tired. And all of this is taking a toll on your relationships.

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.

Hi, I’m Emily. I am a registered General Psychologist. My therapeutic approach is centered by the belief that each person is unique, and deserves to be seen and heard in a space that feels collaborative, respectful, and safe. I am trauma informed in my practice, and my treatment is tailored to the individual needs of each client using evidenced based interventions and approaches. It is my belief that every client has the ability to break negative cycles and behaviors that no longer serve a purpose, so that they can actively choose a better future. It is my role to support them on this journey.

Through evidence-based therapies, you will develop a stronger sense of confidence in your own abilities and judgement. Even if you don't believe it now, I know that you're more resilient than you give yourself credit for! Trust that you're the expert in your own life.

Counselling provides some time that is all about you, where you can discuss what being you feels like, without judgement. Taking the first step to making changes in your life is a bold and brave move. As a counsellor I will celebrate you in your strengths and support you in your difficulties. Counselling is something everyone can benefit from. See if I am the right counsellor for you

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.

Finding a psychologist who you can trust, be comfortable with, and become the version of yourself that you would like to be is very important. This might mean you need help with managing anxiety or depression, guilt or shame, relationship issues or negative self-talk. Sometimes you might not have anyone to talk about your particular concerns with or you have spoken to friends and family, but nothing seems to change. These are good reasons to seek out counselling. I help people who are experiencing difficulty with their relationship with themselves and others, depression and anxiety, trauma, early childhood issues, and life stress.

Life can get overwhelming, and sometimes we don't know how to cope with certain life situations, so we try and do it the best way we can. Coping with our own emotions is unique to each of us; the hack is figuring out how to do it in the healthiest way possible. If you are aware that you have feelings or experiences you want to process but haven't found the space or time to do so, or if you simply want a space to check in with yourself in a deeper way in order to make decisions based on your true inner wants and needs, a therapy space is the safest way to unpack and see what's there.
