M.A. in Counselling C.C.C.

My name is Wai-Han (慧娴), Wai: wisdom; Han: elegance. Being born and raised in a shame-based culture, from a young age I was given the opposite message - that I do not measure up to my name. And so, I experienced the power of words―that they can speak life or death, in my case self-rejection. Through my journey towards healing, spoken words brought liberating life to me. As a result, I am passionate about speaking life into the lives of others, to see individuals finding more internal freedom, - feeling empowered and in control of their experiences - while struggling with depression, anxiety, and challenging interpersonal relationships.

Wai-Han values the courage it takes to reach out. She works with individuals of all ages, including teens and adults. Was-Han has worked with college and school-age students and families by providing compassionate care to diverse, vulnerable populations and is well-versed in helping clients overcome many issues, including stress, anxiety, and challenges of various kinds.

Wai-Han has a heart for social justice and anti-human trafficking work. She is grateful to have developed intercultural experiences in various places, including Romania, Scotland, Australia, Hong Kong, Macau, China, the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, and Nepal. She utilizes an integrative approach to narrative therapy through modalities including (but not limited to) CBT, DBT, solution-focused, and trauma theory. Wai-Han is passionate about languages and cultures. Besides British and Canadian English, she is proficient in Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese. Wai-Han looks forward to journeying with you.


我的名字是「慧嫻」,「慧」是智慧,「嫻」是優雅。可是從小在一個以「羞恥」為中心的文化中長大, 我接收到相反的訊息——我配不上這個名字。我經驗到語言的力量——它可以道出生命也可以成為咒詛,就我而言,它令我拒絕自己。


我熱衷於社會正義和打擊販賣人口的工作。我感恩我在羅馬尼亞、蘇格蘭、澳洲、香港、澳門、中國、菲律賓、柬埔寨、泰國和尼泊爾等地累積的跨文化經驗。我採用綜合方法進行敘事治療,包括(但不限於)CBT、DBT、solution-focused, and trauma theory。我也熱衷語言和文化,除了英國和加拿大英語外,我還精通粵語和普通話。我期待與您一起同行。
