About Demi

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) holding a MDiv degree in Clinical Counselling. In practice, I use an integrative approach that combines various trauma-informed and culturally sensitive therapeutic techniques to meet my clients’ needs. These techniques are mainly drawn from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, Family Systems, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have experience working with adolescents, young adults, adults, couples, and families with challenges including low mood and anxiety, concerns related to self-worth, life transitions, cross-cultural issues, relationship conflicts, grief and loss, and domestic violence. Clients of mine can either be short-term or long-term.

When we engage in therapy, we will start by identifying your goals and timeline. Through our time together, you will be the expert of your story while I aim to provide the space for you to process, deconstruct, and reconstruct unhelpful patterns of thought, feelings, and behaviour. As a fellow collaborator, I am committed to helping you find your own voice, feel seen, be equipped with knowledge and tools to independently address challenges, and be excited about life. I am fully bilingual and can offer services in both English and Mandarin.
