Originally coming from Vietnam at an early age, I recognise the challenges of displacement and otherness through my own personal search for identity and connection. Throughout my life I always felt a need to discover my purpose and in doing so crossed over careers as an artist and a producer in the digital entertainment industry. I have always had a strong fascination for the workings of the unconscious and it was through my artistic practice I was led to regression therapy, which then evolved into my training as a full practitioner and then becoming a counsellor.
In addition to my private practice I work at the Psychosynthesis Trust as part of the counselling service as a counsellor and assessor. I also assist training workshops at the Trust, and I have an artistic practice as a photographer.
How I work
Often our potential to live a fuller life is blocked by everyday psychological challenges, such as physical and emotional difficulties, anxieties, phobias and issues with how we relate to others. Working together in therapy I guide my clients to explore the source of their issue and help them to find solutions to overcome their problems.
Therapy is a process of uncovering, healing and transforming many layers within ourselves. My training in Psychosynthesis recognises that we have many aspects to our personalities, which can cause conflict and limitations, such as when we are feeling anxious or unmotivated. Through exploration and understanding I can help you accept yourself as a 'whole person' so you can learn to believe that you are more than your problems, your past and the content of your stories.
I have an integrative approach to counselling that draws upon imaginative methods such as guided visualisations, and exploration of drawings, dreams and mental imagery. Paying attention to the connection between body, mind and emotions, I work intuitively, allowing each session to flow with your specific needs.
Everyone arrives to the process at very different personal stages. I am committed to meeting each person where they are at as an individual, and can provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space, providing empathy and respect for you, your values and belief system. We can meet for short-term therapy to address specific issues or on a long-term basis for a deeper exploration of key issues and healing over time at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
If you would like to get in touch to ask any questions or to book an initial session then please contact me and I will respond to you as quickly as possible.
I have a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGDip) validated by Middlesex University and accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP); a Diploma in Regression Therapy (Dip RTh) and certificate in Hypnotherapy (Ct Hyp) which are both accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC), as well as a Masters in Photographic Studies (MA) from the University of Westminster.
I am in regular supervision and am continually engaged in self-development both personally and professionally, which enables me to widen my experience and knowledge to fully support my clients.
I have full public liability insurance and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the Spiritual Regression Therapy Association (SRTA), ensuring that I adhere to a safe and ethical practice.
