Lê is a Counsellor with 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. She holds a Bachelor of Counselling and Human Change and a Graduate Diploma in Relationships Systemic Therapy (Couple). Before moving to private practice, Lê worked with Relationships Australia and Uniting Counselling and Mediation (previously Unifam).
Lê relates her passion for relationship counselling works in this way; “With couple work, Lê see herself as doing something similar to a Conductor in a symphony orchestra: tuning and retuning musicians and their instruments (the couples, the families) to the love of their music, sometimes subtle, and other times more direct when they haven’t practiced for a long time”. “With individual work, Lê holds a mirror in many different angles for clients to reflect on areas where they want or need to attend to, to bring their life into a peaceful and wholly shape”. Lê is highly experienced in working with issues around conflict resolution, enhancing communication, listening and intimate connection, trust and respect differences.
In addition to relationship counselling, Lê works with clients to address a range of concerns including self-esteem, depression, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, anger management and cross-cultural issues. Whilst she primarily works from a Systemic and Client-Centred approach, Lê also draws from Attachment Theory, Gottman Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness techniques.
Lê views counselling as a collaborative process between clients and herself as a therapist. She recognises that clients come to counselling from diverse life experiences and acknowledges their uniqueness. The attuned pacing process, at times slow, at times faster, like a dance, creates a safe, trusting and warmth environment in sessions. Lê’s clients referred to these qualities as profound and insightful and connectedness.
Lê speaks English and Vietnamese and is a Buddhist meditator. She also holds a Mindfulness Meditation Certificate.
