  • Why did you choose to become a counsellor?

    Being a very curious child, the ‘why’ of things always intrigued me. Initially, I started studying psychology to satisfy my endless wondering about the ‘why’ of human nature.

    My desire for seeking deeper understanding specifically around mental health also came from watching people close to me struggle with their own mental health while growing up. Perhaps, I wished to understand and support them better.

    I was drawn to study counselling psychology in particular as it fulfilled a need to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives and equipped me with skills to do the same.

  • What excites you about your work as a counsellor?

    As humans, we are hard-wired for connection.

    In daily life where small talk is the norm, my work as a counsellor allows me to experience intimate, authentic, deep and meaningful human connection on a daily basis. It is a privilege to be let into someones internal world, and to navigate the more raw aspects of what makes people human, together.

    Through this journey, it is so heartwarming to see small moments of joy, healing, laughter, celebrations, and glimmers of hope.

    Counselling allows me to be in touch with our shared humanity is such a wonderful way, and for me that is most exciting.

  • What do you hope for your clients to experience after their first session with you?

    Our first session together will involve an in-take process, where I aim to get to know you at a larger level than just the issues you are facing. What does a day in your life look and what does it feel like to be you? We will talk about your goals for therapy, social support, hopes and dreams, family structure - along with the problem you’re seeking therapy for. Deeper work towards your goals together starts from the second session.

    During the first session and all sessions post that, I hope you experience a felt sense of safety and connection. I hope you feel deeply heard, seen and understood.

  • What would you wish to tell a client who is thinking about seeking counselling?

    If you’re thinking of seeking therapy, I would say give it a shot. It’s brave of you to be here and courage goes a long way. You got this far to be looking at therapist profiles, I encourage you to give it a fair chance.

    There’s something for everyone here. Think of it like a gift you’re giving your future self. It’s a space that going to be just yours, where you can explore yourself in your totality. No judgements here, no censoring here. It’s a place where you can learn skills some days, develop insight some days, process emotions some days and a space where you can just ‘be’ on other days. It’s a space of support and understanding, and we could all use a little help to get by.

  • Describe the relationship that you would wish to build with your client in counselling.

    My wish for our relationship is that you can come as you are and express yourself wholly. On my end, I work to create a space that is safe for you to do this. A non-judgemental, attuned, empathic and relational space.

    I will not position myself as the expert of your life. You live your life everyday, and I meet you for just one hour a week. I would love for us to be collaborators in your healing journey. I wish for us to have the relationship where you can freely say, ‘Can we do more of that?’ ‘This is not working for me!’ ‘Today I just want to vent, I’ll learn that skill the week after’ ‘Last session helped! Let’s pick it up from there’.

    I’ll take my cues from you, and I will check-in often to ask you what you need from me.

  • In your counselling work so far, what has been your greatest learning from your clients?

    My greatest learning so far has been that human beings are so resilient and perseverant. People have this amazing ability to bounce back from stressors, and an innate desire to strive for growth. It is a joy to watch this in action.

    I have also learnt that healing is relational. Therapy builds a safe healing environment, and that’s when we can truly face the darkest corners of our mind devoid of shame and loneliness.

  • What are some of your strengths as a counsellor that you value and appreciate?
    I like my ability to be compassionate and authentic as a counsellor. I value my strong ethics and desire for continued learning. I appreciate my ability to bring lightness and humour where appropriate.
  • What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
    I love to read fiction, write and be around my cat. I like doing pilates, playing chess and hanging out with friends and family. I also enjoy a good mindless reality TV show!
  • What are the areas of concern you address in counselling? Do you work with specific populations?
    I work with both adolescents and individuals above 18. A non-exhaustive list of concerns I work with are anxiety, depression, trauma, family/relationship distress or conflict, life transitions, work/education stressors, grief, loss and bereavement. I do not work with sexual trauma.
  • What is the therapeutic approach you use? How would you describe it to someone who wants to consult you for therapy?

    I work using Systemic Family Therapy and Person-Centred Therapy. I am trauma informed and affirmative in my practice.

    Systemic Family Therapy essentially aims to understand our family system and how that impacted us. It maps out family dynamics to uncover patterns we unknowingly learnt as children or patterns that are reinforced as adults in the family. Once we identify the roots of these internalised thoughts/behaviours and why they are not serving us anymore, we can begin to tweak them.

    Person-Centred Therapy provides an environment (between the client and therapist) in the here and now that allows change to happen. It is a safe, healing, equal relationship. This includes but is not limited to genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy.

  • How do you make your therapeutic practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx?
    My language is inclusive and affirmative. Through continued learning, I keep myself aware of the concerns faced by queer and trans folx. I work with a systemic framework, keeping in the mind the role of culture, discrimination, patriarchy, legal structures and how this impacts a persons mental health. Self-reflection to check my own implicit biases stemming from living in a hetro-normative society is also important to me.
