Hi, my name is Jared and I’m here to help. This is about you and I’m here to facilitate your journey in counselling and help you make the changes you want in your life. I can provide a safe space to help guide you to identify and work on whatever issues you may be facing. I believe that we all have the capacity for change, even though it can feel overwhelming at times. I hope to be a source of comfort and safety as we navigate the changes you want to make in your life. I feel that authenticity and compassion are the most important traits that a counsellor can have and it’s what I try to bring to each of my sessions.
Couples: Managing a relationship is difficult and it takes a lot of work. It’s easy to get entrenched in your opinions and ideas; sometimes you need an outside perspective. If you’re coming to see me for couples counselling, I want to work with you both to help strengthen or re-establish communication. I’m here to listen, help and support couples to work together to find a solution that works best for your relationship.
Clients: I look forward to working with adults, teens, and children on a variety of matters including (but certainly not limited to) behavioural changes, ADHD, LGBTQ+ issues, self-esteem, relationships, men’s issues, anxiety and couples issues.
Experience: I have over 15 years of experience in education as a teacher, director, marketer, and problem solver across Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Korea, and the USA. I have built and run schools in Hong Kong and Malaysia. I feel these experiences have made me open to different people and experiences which I bring to my counselling.
Training: I am currently studying for my Masters in Counselling (MoC) at Monash University in Australia. I have completed training courses in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and am interesting in all forms of therapy. And I prefer to use a dialectical approach to counselling where we find a goal you want to achieve and work together to get you there.
I also hold a teaching qualification in the USA and a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Austin College, Texas, USA which I find helps me to see problems from a logical and different angle.
I look forward to working with you. I am available in person or on zoom.
Jared is available for Low-Cost Counselling (LCC) sessions in English.
