MORE ABOUT ME
I first started my counselling job at INTI International College, Subang. I enjoyed providing counselling for the young adults. I did individual, group, and couple counselling apart from working with academician and the office employees in regards of their mental health wellbeing. I have conducted various workshops and training as well. Currently, I am attached with an international school. Apart from that, I am also doing freelancing counselling to people of various backgrounds and give talks, webinars, workshops etc.

I enjoy doing all these and I don’t see it as a job but as something that I am passionate about. I have handled clients from the LGBT background as well. I see all my clients as an individual and they are unique the way there are. I have handled crisis intervention and have been on call in order to handle emergency cases as well. I have experienced in expressive arts, sand trays, dream analysis, and dance and movement too. I incorporate a lot of experiential therapy in my sessions, and they have helped my clients very well. I hold on very strongly to this value and the moto below in my counselling. 

“I strive to provide the best counselling services to my clients. It is important for me to be a good listener and be present with my clients. I want my clients to know that they are accepted as who they are, and I am with them when they need my help and support. My clients are unique and special the way they are. My promise to my clients is that I will journey through with them as they reach to their destinations. It is important for all my clients to know that counselling is a process of self-exploration, self-love, and self-healing in order to lead to a meaningful life.”
