I was born in Hong Kong before my family migrated to a lovely small town called Armidale, NSW, in 1992. We returned to live in Hong Kong for ten years before I came back to Australia. I completed my high school and university education in Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne has been my home for over 16 years.
Studying psychology has been a large part of my life for the past 15 years. My passion for psychology has never ended. Human being is the most complex yet delicate and interesting subject of the universe.
I have gained Certificate Level post-graduate qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Art Therapy (AT) which add onto the mixture of therapeutic techniques I use for helping different clients. I also learnt to use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Family Systems Theory in my practice of psychotherapy.
The basic education I have gained from my Master's degree is in Educational and Developmental Psychology, where I learnt psychological assessments, neurodevelopmental assessments and educational assessments.
It is an exciting journey when I combine my skill sets all together in my practice. Sometimes I wish I have double the time to enjoy my work and family life.
As a mother of three boys, I dedicate my weekends to spend time with my family. Our favourite is swimming and reading together before bed.
Trained in Melbourne, Australia, I completed my Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) degree and Master of Educational and Developmental Psychology (MPsych) at Monash University, Clayton campus. I studied my Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology and spent one year with Deakin University on the beautiful Geelong campus.
I am certified to practice using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Adult, Children and Adolescents), and
am endorsed in Educational and Developmental Psychology.
I am also certified with Art Therapy and can provide psychotherapy in an art form. I have clinical experiences in using Interpersonal Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
