“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ​ - Audre Lorde. Hello, and welcome to Pamati Counselling. Pamati means listen in Cebuano. I am from mixed Asian ancestry, including Filipino, Chinese and Vietnamese. I was born in Toronto, the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. My pronouns are she/her/they/them and I identify with the LGBTQ2s community. The intersectional movements of MeToo, and MMWGI, and Black Lives Matter inform my work.

I am of Asian background, mostly Chinese.
You are an entrepreneur, artist and truth seeker. You identify as a relational anarchist and a creative spirit that is determind to design your life and the structure of your relationships. You seek your own answers as to what it means to be living a meaningful life. You are motivated by the fear of leaving the earth not having lived your life to your fullest, completely governed by unconscious drives, and not having examined your suffering. Most importantly, you can no longer bear not speaking your truth and living your most authentic expressions of self. Finding your soul's purpose is one of your driving principles in life.

I focuses on Mind-body therapy, Energy Healing and Stress reduction. Many of our physical illnesses may directly relate to our feelings and thoughts. Negative emotions, suppressed and repressed feelings may exist in our conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious minds. Can you catch up as many mind-body signals as possible to be proactive in your health. Do you talk to your mind-body regularly to understand what they need. Do you work collaboratively with your mind-body to reach the maximum healing, health, and longevity? I will help you reach and maintain the best status of your mind-body.

In the constant battle to match societal norms you may find yourself sticking out like a sore thumb. You might find that no matter how well you adapt to your environment you have an inner desire to just be yourself and to stop caring what other people think. But the pressures to perform, be productive and be useful overpower that voice within, limiting its expression. I help guide you to find ways to express and live a life that is aligned for you through inner child and shadow work by working with your body, mind and soul.

I've found the work of counselling to be incredibly fulfilling, and feel honoured when trusted with the opportunity to learn about someone’s life.

"There are gifts and transformations embedded within trauma." My counselling approach is holistic and relationally based with a focus on a somatic (body) awareness to bring congruency between the mind and body. Many of our wounds occurred within our most trusted relationships causing us to have difficulties getting close to loved ones. Also, we become disconnected from ourselves when we experience trauma or disruptions in relationships. The good news is, with the right support, everyone has an inner capacity to heal and transform from their struggles.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Downtown, Vancouver?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.
