Master of Counselling Student, Monash University HK.
Fee: HK$350 per 50mins.
I am very fortunate to have lived in many beautiful parts of the world – France, Australia, 18 happy years in Hong Kong, and currently the UK. I can understand the challenges of integration and the joys of making new friends.
I initially trained and worked as a lawyer before moving into legal search, working primarily within financial services in identifying legal talent for over 20 years. The things I enjoyed most about my career included helping people build and shape their careers, problem solve and above all, fostering human relationships. Keen to continue working with individuals in a more holistic way, I have undertaken the Master of Counselling Course with Monash University. I look forward to establishing therapeutic relationships based on trust and empathy and helping clients realise their full potential.
Passionate about mental health, I am particularly interested in helping people navigate significant life changes – often, we are simply not ready to tackle the obstacles and challenges we face in everyday life. Life stages (the menopause, parenthood, ageing) and events (grief, redundancy, divorce) can cause instability and counselling can help to find understanding, balance and peace in our lives. I believe in remaining open and flexible and will tailor sessions around the needs of the client. While I am continuing to learn about different modalities, I have exposure to person-centric therapy, CBT and have a strong interest in mindfulness.
My family and I currently live in the UK where I am coming to terms with living with two thirteen-year-olds who are now taller than me. I am often found wrapped against the wind hiking the coastal paths of Devon chasing our energetic cocker spaniel, Coco.
