About me

I work with individuals, couples as well as small business owners. I also work with other counselors for supervisory purposes.

I have been dealing with individual issues such as anxiety, anger management, addiction, alcoholism, eating disorder, depression, Domestic violence, PTSD, Body dysmorphia,  sexuality/gender identity, relationships, and many other issues.

For couples, I have helped with issues as Pre/Post-marital, Sexuality, Intimacy, Conflict management, Extramarital affairs, Loss, Inter-cultural marriage, and understanding cultural differences, communication, and parenting. 

For Small business owners and Corporate, I can help employers and employees to bring a better understanding in the working environment to create an effective and healthy atmosphere by dealing with interpersonal and communication issues.

As a supervisor for other fellow counselors, I apply the integrative supervision model. This means I will be able to provide various perspectives in therapy for counselors as well as for clients. 

As a bilingual speaker, I can also provide counseling sessions both in English and Korean.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in Integrative Counselling and I am a certified couple counsellor. I am also COSCA certified supervisor.  I have been working as a counsellor for more than 10 years within Scotland, the USA, and South Korea. My experiences as a counsellor in various countries have given me a deeper understanding and high respect for differences and diversities, which helped many individuals and couples with their personal and relationship matters including their career issues.

I take a psychoanalytical and existential approach together with integrative psychological tools to help clients with their various issues from Relational, Individual, Marital, LGBT and Corporate.

Wheelchair user access

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.
