About me

Hi, my name is Yong. I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor currently offering telephone, video call, Walk & Talk therapy and Face to Face sessions in my Citroen Relay camper. I can put the kettle on and the environment feels safe and lends itself well to talking. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified counsellor with experience working with adults and older children (11+). Happy to work with all kinds of issues - whatever is bothering you. My special areas of interest are young adults with their complicated minds, any involvement with the Criminal Justice System and expressions of anxiety. I am fascinated by people who experience alternate personalities too, so if you are struggling with this I would be so happy to work with you. 
I have volunteered at Leeds City College and am currently working as a counsellor in connection with HMP Leeds. Also I work digitally on Kooth with young people.
My ethical governing body is National Counselling Society.
