The treatment frameworks I use include Cognitive-behavioural therapy, Schema Therapy, Cognitive-processing Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and other strengths-based approaches.
I am passionate about creating a safe space for people from all walks of life. I see people who may have concerns around anxiety, depression, low motivation, stress, trauma, relationship difficulties, physical and/or chronic health conditions that affect mood and functioning. My therapeutic style is typically compassionate, warm, down-to-earth, honest, transparent, respectful, encouraging, and direct. I work collaboratively with clients to tailor evidence-based treatments to their needs, values, and treatment goals. I also take careful consideration of their psychological, physical, emotional, cultural, and spiritual influences.

I primarily utilise Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
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.

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.

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.
