My Story

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Toronto (Canada) and London (UK). My personal narrative of relocation adversity, and adjustments to life and family transitions, naturally guided me toward this field. I am curious, open and compassionate, as I believe that these are crucial ingredients to build a safe space for you to slowly explore, take the first steps towards empowerment. A core belief of mine is to work with individuals rather than at individuals. Therapy is a collaborative process rather than prescriptive. 

 

I was previously based in the United Kingdom where I practised both in the public (NHS) and private sectors (online) but recently relocated back to Hong Kong. During the ten years of working in the mental health and wellbeing field, I have worked with individuals and families from different cultures, backgrounds, and languages. 

If you like to know more, please have a look around to understand my approach, areas of expertise, and therapy approaches. Alternatively, you can message me directly to enquire.
