I am a mental health and clinical social worker and have been practising marriage and family therapy over 30 years. I have extensive training in systemic & strategic family therapy, solution focused brief therapy, mentalization based therapy for families as well as clinical hypnosis. I have completed all levels of Gottman couple therapy training and is a Certified Gottman Therapist.
In the last 30+ years, I have been specialising in working with children and young people who suffer from significant mental illness as well as couples who suffered from relationship difficulties with a co-morbid mental health condition including anxiety disorder, depression, drug and alcohol dependency etc.
In working with couple, I integrate the Gottman Method of Couple therapy with systemic-strategic, solution focus and clinical hypnosis concept into my clinical work. I chose the gottman method for couple therapy because it is research and evidence informed as well as it provides a very practical and skill based approach to couple to learn to resolve their relationship difficulties. The approach is very empowering and generate hopes for couples.
I believe most people have more resource than they are aware. People have more capacities to learn more skills than they know of themselves. Therefore, as a therapist, it is my job to work with them to discover their potential and find their own solutions to their difficulties.
In my practice, I offer psychosocial treatment to the followings:
Couple and Relationship problems using Gottman Method
Child and Youth Mental Health
Parenting difficult adolescent
Trauma and PTSD
Drug and Alcohol Dependency
Chronic Pain Management
Grief and Loss
Other significant mental illnesses including Psychotic Disorder and Bipolar
Children and young people; Single parent families; Blended families
