About me

Our body is a living record of the stories we have lived. The body doesn't speak words as a way of remembering the past; it reveals stories and feelings through patterns of postures, expressions, movements and long-held tensions. During sessions, we take time to find out what the body knows. Together, we get curious about patterns of emotional expression and relational styles, that reveal core beliefs. I am a mindfulness-based body psychotherapist originally from Singapore, now based in Amsterdam. Our personalities are forged in the fires of our earliest relationships. Untangling our conditioning from what we have learned in these relationships, and becoming free from limiting beliefs and unnecessary suffering, is what inspires me to do this work.

My approach

My approach is warm, welcoming, compassionate and joyful. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is the most effective factor in healing. My intention is to provide a space in which the relationship between us is a safe space where you are welcome exactly as you are.
