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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
