If you reached a point where you find yourself lost or confused, feel life is becoming a challenged and your world is falling apart. If you are finding it difficult to cope with the daily demand of life and work expectation.

I am a qualified professional counsellor, psychotherapist and a coach. Having experienced my own challenge in life over the years. I offer a non-judgmental compassionate empathy that provide you a safe and confidential environment. Where you feel listened, respected to your personal value, belief and culture.
As an Integrative Counselling and Coach. I bring together range of approaches and my lived working experience, to work in an intuitive, empathic way, to suit each individual needs. As I believe everyone, is an individual and each person requires different approaches at different time of their life to where they are in in they life in therapy.
At the heart of the therapeutic practice, I believe relationship is the key, to enhance individual's self-confidence, self-esteem to face and manage anxiety and depression to their life situation, in order to work through the process. I do this by working collaboratively with individual, because their life experience makes them who they are and personal development makes them who they want to be.
