I focus on the needs of my clients and adopt a counselling style that integrates client’s strengths and resources with appropriate counselling concepts including Zen Counseling. Having spent 25 years as a Human Resources (HR) practitioner in the banking industry in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Hong Kong, I have an insightful and intuitive understanding of human behaviours. These experiences and knowledge are part of my counselling DNA combining to form my own brand of support that includes HR expertise, corporate mindset, and multi-cultural perspectives. Education and Qualifications: Master of Counselling from Monash University, Melbourne, Australia Bachelor of Counselling from the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors (AIPC), Brisbane, Australia Certified Grief Recovery Specialist ®, Grief Recovery Insstitute, Oregon, USA e-Therapy Certificate, ALLCEU Psychometric Testing and Occupational Personality Assessment, Saville & Holdsworth (SHL) Certified Zen Counsellor, International Zen Counseling Association, Japan
As a qualified counsellor, I have been trained in numerous mainstream counselling models. Unlike the western counselling approaches, Zen Counseling adopts the Zen (peaceful and relaxed) Philosophy of Calm, Respect, and Simplicity. I found Zen Counseling to be unique, authentic, peaceful, and effective.
