I collaborate with clients experiencing ADHD, bipolar , anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, PTSD, sexual dysfunction, relationship issues and eating disorders.
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.

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.

Bipolar Disorder Counsellors
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
