There are times when we are enjoying ourselves, walking in the park, playing with our pets, partying with our friends, or exercising, and suddenly….. we trip and fall. It hurts and can be embarrassing at times. All eyes are looking at us! Sometimes, the fall causes a scratch that will recover by itself. Sometimes the wound is bigger and we need to ask for help. No matter what are the circumstances, we should not afraid to fall, but we should learn how to stand up from our fall and keep moving. Because fall down is part and puzzle of life.

In our life span, we will face different junctions at times in our journey, and many of us we received external supports to walk through these junctions. In any time of our journey, every one of us will experience life with disappointments, emotional distress, and conflicts.

A therapist with a difference. The past 18 years in this field have taught me that besides being professional, well trained, a therapist has to be genuinely humane, humble, approachable, and compassionate with a sense of humour, whilst supporting, walking with clients on their journey to wellness.

No individual person is a problem but a problem is a problem and my job is to help clients recover remember and reclaim their agency. I was not there at the start nor can change it but I can be there to empower you with choices where and how you finish
