About me

Having lived and worked in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Manchester, and Glasgow, I gained a unique perspective on my identity and how I relate to people and the surrounding environment. I had my own experience of being a guest of a different culture and struggled not fully fitting in, to now finding peace within myself. I feel I can empathise deeply with individuals who are going through transitions or experiencing marginalisation/alienation. I want to accompany you in piecing together the jigsaw and making sense of the bigger picture.  

My practice is based on the Person-Centred approach, which means you are the person at the centre of therapy, holding the knowledge of your life and the answers to your life's questions.

Your view and lived experience deserves to be heard and understood, and I want you to feel safe to talk openly in therapy. I want to empower you to be more in tune with yourself and realise you have options even in a difficult situation. Counselling can alleviate psychological suffering and help you find new perspectives in life. I warmly welcome you to take the first step with me.

Practice description

Each counselling session costs £55 and it lasts 50 minutes. We can work on a week-by-week basis or arrange the sessions to suit your needs. Concession fees are available for students and individuals on a low income.   

Before the first session

I offer a free 20-minute telephone/ video consultation. You can ask questions about my counselling approach or bring up any concerns. I do not expect you to commit to anything other than your own well-being. 

If we agree to start therapy, I will send you an agreement to sign before our first session.

Please get in touch with me to arrange your free consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with clients referred by the NHS/GP and with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures. I have experience with relationship problems, work stress, grief, low self-esteem, adverse childhood experiences, identity crisis, racial discrimination, climate anxiety, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and more. I support people who experienced intergenerational trauma and cultural differences between generations and within romantic relationships. 

I hold a Master's degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Salford University. In my MSc Dissertation, I investigated UK Chinese people's experiences in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am intersted in the role of identity and culture in mental health. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
