Currently I serve as the coordinator for Guidance and Counselling programme. As a licensed counsellor and counselling educator, I see myself as a person who has the privilege of taking the journey with people who may have encountered problems in their lives, be it loss and grief, family and work related stresses, or mental illness. I embrace the humanistic and systemic approach in counselling, and believe that the beauty of counselling and therapy lies in their creation of a safe and distill environment where people can face their intra- and inter- relational conflicts. As a counsellor educator, I enjoy teaching and also training future mental health professionals at the university level apart from doing research. I am a strong advocate of community assistance programmes, and have been actively involved in promoting and developing such programmes.
