About Me

I have always had a natural curiosity towards people and the world around me. This led me to have an interest in pursuing psychology, and later on, to specialise in counselling. Through my past and also having a lasting impression of others’ struggles, I realised how our journey can be painful and lonely. I also realised how having support during those times can help ease the journey. These experiences and heartfelt life stories motivated me to be a counsellor, so that I can provide professional support and empowerment to anyone facing challenges.

 

My previous clinical experience included counselling at a 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 demographic 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 mainly guided by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which allows us to understand the layers behind our thoughts to develop a healthy perception of self and outlook on our world. I also integrate interventions from theories of Emotion-Focused Therapy and Reality Therapy. I believe that emotions are an integral aspect of being human and that as humans, our lives are shaped by the choices we make. 

 

As your therapist, I will guide you along the potentially 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 for you to approach and explore your struggles with gentleness and curiosity. I will journey alongside you while you take steps forward into becoming a stronger you.

 

Let’s go on this journey together!
