I have worked with adults and adolescents since 2009, with more than half being non-Chinese.  My masters thesis was on clients’ experience of counseling. I found that for it to work, people need to feel heard in a deep empathetic way, and they want to take away something useful, a new understanding, perspective or strategy. I use a person centered approach that is warm and gentle, complimented with CBT, ACT, IDT, EFT, mindfulness, sandtray therapy etc.  Having lived in NZ since 2001.
