"In a world where suffering is omnipresent and inevitable, relief and resilience are needed. It has always been my aspiration to work as a clinical psychologist so that I am in a position to help ameliorate the suffering of others, and to facilitate their pursuit of self-actualisation and empowerment."

About Me
Research & Publications

Being an athlete throughout most of my adolescence and young adulthood, I have embodied the tenacity and resilience needed in the face of challenges and difficulties, and learnt that overcoming fear and the uncomfortable, could earn us a tremendous sense of satisfaction and aliveness. These realisations underpin my approach as a clinical psychologist. I believe that the processes of change and recovery are never easy but accompanied by inevitable discomfort. Yet, I also believe that there are many beautiful potentials for every individual behind their experience of suffering and distress.

I always respect clients’ autonomy and value the therapeutic alliance with them which I regard as the most important catalyst of change. I embrace a collaborative approach, instead of holding myself in the position of authority, and I endeavor to be a genuine, warm and compassionate companion to my clients, accompanying them through the ups and downs on their journey of recovery. I take care to tailor psychological treatment according to my client’s unique circumstances.
