Why choose coaching?


People choose coaching when they desire some form of change and feel stuck in one or more areas of their lives.
I provide a calm and safe space for self-reflection, helping individuals gain clarity on how to bring about positive change.
It's not about giving advice. It’s about helping you find your own answers.
Areas I deal with include career and life transitions, stress management, health, low mood, resilience, self-confidence, sexuality, and identity.
I work with adults of all age groups and walks of life, in person and online.
Integrative therapeutic approach
Existential, positive psychology, cognitive and mind-body coaching.
Based on the assumption that each one of us will feel some anxiety due to the uncertainties of life, existential coaching is a philosophical approach aiming to help in the quest for meaning and purpose.
Positive psychology coaching seeks to improve emotional wellbeing by identifying your strengths and helping you utilise them in better ways.
Cognitive coaching is about changing mindsets. Most mindsets can be boiled down to a few core beliefs. By identifying and challenging these flawed beliefs, we can achieve a positive mindset shift. 
The mind-body connection tends to be neglected in talking therapies, the work being done at a "head" level only. I aim to help clients increase somatic awareness through mindfulness coaching.
Coaching vs therapy
A frequently asked question is: What is the difference between coaching and psychotherapy? The quick and common answer to this question is that therapy focuses on the past, whereas coaching is about the present and future. While this might be generally true, my person-centred approach allows for deeper self-exploration, if and when needed.

I offer a sliding scale based on clients' circumstances. 
The frequency of the sessions can vary from weekly to monthly.
Experience and training

I've been practising as a coach since 2016 and running a wellness practice since 2008. I trained in the UK and in Asia. Before training as a coach and therapist, I did translation and teaching work. My background in music performance, and my struggle with stage fright, made me aware of the mind-body connection and the importance of stress management.
