    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Culturally diverse
    2. Warm and engages well
    3. Skilled at identifying blocks
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    The ability to join clients at the stage where they find themselves stuck and being able to travel with them to their desired destination. When clients work on their fears and challenge to better understand their feelings and needs.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    An elderly retired couple in their late 60s, where the husband had an affair for several years which the wife had just found out when they came to see me. The wife wasn’t sure what she wanted and if she even wanted to be in the marriage. The husband was apologetic and wanted to work on their relationship. They saw me for over a year and at the end, they were happy being with each other. They knew that there was no resolution to what had happened but were ready to embrace each other’s pain and vulnerabilities. They found their lost friendship that helped them heal.
