|Profile||I work with adults by providing individual, couple and family counseling. About half of my clientele are couples. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, both Malaysian and foreign, to help them deal with issues in a range of areas: marital, family and other relationships, career decision-making, depressive symptoms, anxiety, anger, grief and loss and trauma.
My decision to venture into counseling was motivated by my desire to equip myself to understand and help people to live empowered and full lives in the midst of life’s often inevitable challenges. I have learnt that to do this, they need to be in a safe, unbiased relationship that allows and encourages them to evaluate and change the way they view themselves, others and their environment. My training has provided me with the skills to help clients use their time in therapy to come to a realization of what is good and strong within themselves and their lives, resources that get obscured by the stresses and busyness of our lives.
I am mainly guided by the existential-humanistic therapeutic approach which believes that people have the capacity to arrive at their own solutions to the problems they face if they are in a therapeutic relationship that engenders a sense of freedom in the midst of their difficulties. It is what I seek to provide to my clients with an ongoing commitment to learn and grow myself.
