My Parent Can’t Understand Me (Webinar on Zoom)
September 21, 2020
Date: December 2020 (Actual date to be advised)
Do you feel that your friends really get you, more than any parent can? If so, you are not alone. When we begin to acknowledge barriers to understanding, we can move toward these relationship wounds, decide how healing looks like (note: reconciliation is not always the goal) and choose to take reasonable action.
About the Speaker:
Mr Huang Wei Xin, M Counselling, BSocSc (Hons) Psych | Counsellor at Shan You Counselling Centre
Seeking to understand and heal my own wounds brought me here. For 4 years now, I’ve been seeing my own therapist. Although I have a Masters of Counselling, my clients, supervisors and colleagues are my real teachers. They’ve showed me what it means to be human, and they reflect the very struggles and resilience that I see in myself. To me, the person of the client matters first. We spend initial sessions making sense of pain, their stories, their strengths. Clients often see me for relational issues, depression, loss and grief, anxiety, anger and stress. I integrate lenses and approaches, such as solutions-focused, systemic, developmental, mindfulness (e.g. trauma-informed, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindful self-compassion), cognitive-behavioural (e.g. ACT, Schema Therapy).
Above all, I believe we are guided by an inner compass toward freedom, love, joy, and growth.
