Qualifications and Background
I received my qualification in individual and couple psychotherapy and counselling at Tavistock Relationships (diploma awarded by University of East London), with additional training in Adolescence Development at Tavistock and Portman, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Association of Psychological Therapy and Positive Psychology with University of Pennsylvania (US). I am a registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). In addition to BSc, I hold an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley (US). I have lived and worked in the UK, America and Asia for the last three decades and speak fluent Mandarin.
Meliora Therapy London promotes counselling, psychotherapy and coaching to help people overcome psychological barriers and thrive. I aim to alleviate suffering and pain and to increase overall well-being through evidence-based and compassionate practice. Meliora, in Latin, means pursuit of the better and that's what I strive for: to enable people to feel better, do better and live better through counselling psychotherapy and coaching. My practice is supervised regularly and I maintain an on-going professional development schedule to deepen my understanding of the science and practices in neuroscience, psychology and psychotherapy.
How I Work
Therapy is a personal journey. I start by actively listening to you, exploring the deeper roots of your troubles and collaboratively devise a way forward. My aim is to help you alleviate your sufferings and to find ways for you to thrive. By integrating several different types of therapy, I formulate a set of interventions to work with each individual or couple. The foundations of my psychotherpeutic approach are in psychodynamic therapy, attachment-based therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). In addition, I also incorporate elements of positive psychology and mindfulness practice.
I am available to discuss if counselling, psychotherapy or coaching is right for you.
