MORE ABOUT ME
I did my Masters in Counseling (M. Couns) at University Malaya, after having completed my Executive Diploma in Counseling in UMCCeD. I have been practising as a counsellor and lecturing for the past 9 years. I am especially interested in Jungian Psychology, and the effects of Expressive Arts and Creative Writing in counselling therapy. As a writer, I have first-hand knowledge of the therapeutic benefits of expressing creativity (in any form) upon the mental health of individuals. Creative arts can help even individuals from troubled backgrounds maintain a healthy psychological perspective. My Master’s thesis was on helping women negotiate their mid-life transition issues using Jungian techniques. I am also well-versed in using sand-tray with both adults and children.

LANGUAGES
English, Malay, Tamil.
