Hi, I am
Licensed & Registered Counsellor under Lembaga Kaunselor Malaysia
English, Malay (conversational)
Master of Professional Counselling | Monash University
Bachelor of Science (Hons) Psychology | Sunway University
I have always had a natural curiosity towards understanding people and the world around me. A recurring observation I have is how often our lives, existence, and stories can go unacknowledged. Many of us end up living a lonely and sombre life and/or a life that is not our own. In some ways, we are searching to be seen, understood, and given the opportunity to shine as our own person. Not just by others, but also by ourselves. These heart-felt and relatable realisations have given me a continuous motivation to provide that experiential space, as a counsellor, for people to share their stories.
My previous clinical experience includes counselling at an established private therapy centre and at a school. These experiences gave me the opportunity to journey with teens and their parents, young adults, and middle-aged adults from various backgrounds. I have also conducted workshops for youths and adults in different settings. In addition, I worked closely with youths in my church. I was also a subject teacher for primary and secondary school students.
My sessions are guided by a combination of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I believe both cognition and emotions hold valuable information in the understanding of being human – in how we perceive ourselves, others, and experience the world around us. I also believe that we are each wired differently and thus I integrate techniques from other therapeutic approaches (e.g., art, narrative therapy) to suit my clients’ needs and to achieve their therapy goals.
As your therapist, I will guide you along this possibly intimidating but ultimately fulfilling path of therapy. I endeavour to ensure you are comfortable and empowered to be your genuine self. I will create a safe space filled with gentleness and curiosity for you to approach and explore your story. I will journey alongside you while you take steps forward into growth.
Experience and education that has prepared me to work with a number of issues, including:
Anxiety and OCD
Identity and existential crises
Stress and burnout
