About me

Eudaimonia (Ευδαιμονια in Greek philosophy), whose Latin translation is Beata Vita (Happy Life), is an ancient term equivalent to Optimal Mental Health. Also, the concept of Nirvana in Buddhism means the same thing.

How, then, can we attain Eudaimonia/Nirvana? By means of right living, correct way of life, or authentic way of being in the world with others.

What is the right way of life? Pursuing Ethical Values, such as Truth, Wisdom, and Humility – in other words, becoming more truthful, wiser, and humbler.

If growing in Truth, Wisdom, and Humility means something for you, then you have found the right person to be your fellow traveller.

I am tri-lingual (English, British Sign Language, and Korean). Due to my hearing difficulty, I use a microphone/transmitter and a receiver when I work with hearing clients. For d/Deaf clients I use BSL and/or lipreading, while for d/Deaf-and-Blind clients Hands on signing. I offer online counselling only to BSL users.

I am a Registered member of UKCP (membership no. 2011166018) & BACP.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained at the Regent’s University London, doing a MA in Psychotherapy & Counselling, and afterwards an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. I beforehand received a Phd in Philosophy at Durham University.

I am experienced in:

  • social anxiety
  • depression
  • (abusive) relationships
  • low self-esteem
  • bereavement
  • self-harm
  • addiction
  • PTSD
  • and more.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
