” I often find people expect to make a monumental change in a short time using extravagant techniques. My tip is to aim at small changes with simple techniques that you can do consistently. Small and consistent steps – those are the keys. “

Professional Experience

Lily is a client-centred psychologist who works with young adults (16 and above), adults and older adults (80 and above) across a range of cultural and social backgrounds. She is especially skilled in treating trauma, relationship issues, depression and anxiety. She also provides interventions for a wide range of issues including anger management, domestic violence, bipolar disorder, suicide prevention, addictions, OCD, grief and loss, work-related issues, health-related issues, LGBTQIA+ issues and more. 

Lily brings with her extensive experience as a mental health crisis counsellor, where she provided immediate intervention to people experiencing life crisis. She has a strong track record of delivering effective evidence-based interventions to diverse populations, including people with complex clinical presentations resulting from trauma and/or physical ailments. 

Psychology is Lily’s calling. Inquisitive and reflective about the things that make humans suffer, she has always been driven to find an answer to these problems. Lily endeavours to deepen her knowledge and experience in trauma and relationships, as she believes the two are interconnected. Her mission is to walk side-by-side with her clients in their self-actualising journey, and to help them live a meaningful and fulfilling life according to their own values. 

In her sessions, Lily takes a collaborative and eclectic approach, drawing elements from different modalities to tailor her therapy to the unique needs of each client. One of the key techniques she teaches is mindfulness, focusing on building a mind-body connection, as this is a significant element across various therapeutic modalities.

Lily shares one of her favourite quotes by Theodore Roosevelt,People dont care how much you know until they know how much you care.” She is constantly in awe at her clients’ abilities to grow from trauma, setbacks and the challenges life has thrown at them. She is both fuelled and rewarded by their eureka moments where they gain insights into their experiences and take action to live a more fulfilling life. 

When she isn’t working, Lily enjoys reading and bushwalking. Her favourite book is Viktor Frankl’s Man Search for Meaning and she enjoys listening to The Huberman Lab podcast.
