Christy qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and has worked with individuals, couples and families on a wide range of issues since, including anger, depression, grief, stress and anxiety, relationships, pre-marriage, life transition, life direction, childhood trauma, life crisis and personal development.

Having migrated with her husband and family from Hong Kong, she is personally aware of the challenges that migrants face and the difference in culture.

“I am committed to working with my clients and counselling them in how to manage their challenges and to go on and live a productive and meaningful life. I understand that  many people are hesitant to seek counselling. I am proud of my clients. They are all bold people who are courageous in dealing with their life issues and the desire to live better. I believe that it’s often best to tackle problems and life challenges early on, before they have a chance to grow.” – Christy
