Mental health counselling is for everyone. You don't have to go through a difficult time alone. It is important to get support from people around you, and perhaps talk to a professional. Sophie is a registered clinical counsellor and holds a Master's Degree of Counselling Psychology from UBC. She has been supporting clients who try to cope with emotions and stresses, improve interpersonal relationships, or facilitate personal growth. She has also been involved in parent education based on Adlerian Psychology and psychoeducation on addictions.

Back in China, Sophie was mostly working with university students on their career development. After pursuing further education in Canada, she has been working in community-based settings with youth and adult clients on a range of issues. Her volunteer work has been devoted to increasing accessible services and support in the LGBTTQQIAAP community.

As a counsellor using person-centred approach, Sophie believes in the strengths of each client and their ability to self-reflect. She considers authenticity and holding a safe space as the foundation of any therapeutic work. She highly values her role as a counsellor in supporting individuals along their journey to move towards where they want to be in life.
