Self Acceptance, Development and Enlightenment
A little introduction about me
I am a Therapeutic Counsellor based in Vancouver, Canada. I grew up in Japan for the first 22 years of my life. I'm still deeply connected with Japanese culture. I have been supporting Japanese patients in communicating with medical personnel as a medical interpreter. My hope is to support as many people as possible now as a counsellor in finding their own path and a light at the end of their tunnel, however those tunnels are shaped in their life.
I have 40 plus years of life experiences, 20 plus years of free counselling and 7 years of medical interpreter experience. I've also graduated from Vancouver College of Counsellor Training and now in the process of becoming a hypnotherapist. I'm here to hear your stories, understand what you need, find what you can let go and help you rediscover yourself. Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey, journey to find a path to your wonderful happy life!
My approach to counselling comes from Person-Centered Therapy. It means you matter. You deserve to be heard without any judgement. I am here to offer you a safe space for you to be open and talk about whatever you need.
Counselling is not all about giving advice but help you find insights. It's for you to safely explore and discover answers within yourself. Counselling can also be a place for you to be heard, welcomed and accepted for who you are and to be supported for your journey to answers or to your true self.
Everyone's journey is different. So are the stress, issues, pains or whatever they're facing in their lives. I might approach our sessions from various angles and various therapy styles in order to find what really works for each client.
Whatever it is that you're facing, you have all the abilities and talents to overcome it. Everyone has their unique ability, everyone has their own pace to learn, and everyone is different in how to overcome their challenges. All they need is to remember how much power they have within themselves.
We are all here for a reason. Everyone is here because they're supposed to be.
Thank you for coming into this world.
And thank you for letting me be your support during the tough times.
