About

(

I am a registered member (Registration number: 1829) of BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) since 2001. With more than 20 years of professional counselling experience in both public and private settings, I am passionate in walking with people through their struggles and helping them overcome their traumatic past. My counselling approach aims at helping clients increase their self-awareness, identify any unhealthy emotional blockages, desensitize and reprocess emotional charged memories, promote integration of a wholistic self, improve and enrich interpersonal relationships, and experience the joy of emotional freedom.
I am a Certified EMDR therapist, fluent in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. I work with individual adults, couples, and parents. With my training in Christian theology, I can offer the option of Christian faith integration within the counselling process. I offer online session at Dei Gratia Counselling & Wellness and in-person session at FHL Clinics.
I believe life is created to be beautiful, meaningful, and hopeful despite the messiness and complexity of humanity. I value each individual's uniqueness and the process of their "becoming". Being a partaker of grace, I am committed to care for the soul and journey with people from different walks of life.​ If you want to know more, please visit my website.
我於2001年成為卑詩省心理輔導協會(BCACC)的註冊臨床心理輔導員 (或稱作心理諮詢師,會員編號#1829)。在過往的廿多年中,我曾在不同的場景 (包括非牟利機構、學校、及私人執業)累積專業輔導經驗。 我熱心於和困境中的人同行,幫助他們在人生的難處和挑戰中覓尋出路,繼續前行。我的輔導方針主要為探索情緒背後的真相和解構生命故事的主題與軌跡,藉此幫助受輔者提高自我意識醒察、認清及疏導情緒障礙、重新整理舊日創傷、增進全人整合,繼而自由地以新的角度去體會生命、改善人際關係、經歷釋懷的自在與喜樂。
我能操流利的英文、廣東話、及國語。諮詢服務主要範圍包括青少年輔導、個人心理治療、婚前預備、婚姻治療、及家庭治療。我是國際EMDR協會認可的EMDR治療師,專門處理及舒解心理創傷的各種後遺症狀。基於我的信仰和神學訓練,我也可提供以基督信仰整合的輔導服務,但這只是一個選擇,受輔者可自由決定,我絕對尊重受輔者的個人意向和適時的需要。我於Dei Gratia Counselling & Wellness 提供網上心理諮詢服務,亦於FHL Clinics提供實體心理諮詢服務。如欲了解更多,詳情可到我的網頁查看。
縱使人生的路途總是崎嶇曲折,令人感到無所適從,但我仍然相信生命是美好的、有意義的、並滿有盼望的。我看重每一個人的獨特性及其生命成長的歷程。我相信,靠著從上而來的恩典,我能繼續委身於生命關懷及與人同行的輔導工作。
