My Story

I grew up in Malaysia with deeply-rooted Chinese traditions. My parents, especially my mum, has always been attuned to healthy living, from eating a balanced meal, sleeping well (including taking naps), to paying attention to her body with massage. However, her lifestyle and example didn’t spare me from health challenges and pain throughout my early lifespan, both physically and psychologically. 

I craved for freedom, both from physical health problems and mental struggles. I developed an interest in psychology when I was 15 and went to every educational fair to collect enough information to convince my dad that this was the pathway I wanted to pursue. I managed to get good enough grades that persuaded my reluctant dad to choose my own path. 


My journey to becoming a psychologist began with the hope to understand myself and others. In this pursuit, I left home when I was 17. I lived in the UK for approximately 5 years, and then continued my journey to Germany where I still live today.


I’ve studied and worked in different fields of psychology before finding my passion in positive psychology and health psychology. After years working as a psychologist across different industries, I combined the essential elements of positive and health psychology, aiming to help individuals and organizations to thrive, to know one’s strengths, and use them to become a better version of themselves. 


After 15 years of professional experience, I am still learning and continue to be fascinated by the power of understanding oneself. I am sharing you my expertise because of my first-hand experience. I’ve found my sources of happiness, and I want to help you to find out more about yourself and write your own story. My journey in positive and health psychology has transformed my life, and I believe this can similarly create a sustainable change in anyone.
