Lixin is a warm and empathetic counsellor who is dedicated to empowering individuals and fostering resilience within themselves. She is a Clinical Member, Registered Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor of Singapore Association of Counselling (SAC).

Lixin has extensive experience in working with teens, young adults, couples, and families. She does not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to therapy but emphasises a holistic approach to mental wellbeing. Therefore, she adopts an integrative approach, drawing from various therapeutic techniques to meet each client’s needs, utilising Trauma-informed therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Play-based therapy and Attachment-based therapy.  She is also trained in Mental Health First Aid Crisis Intervention for Children and Youth and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).

Lixin started her helping profession in a youth residential hostel. During her early years in the residential hostel, she was involved in the case management role for the clients. Having case consults with the counsellor sparked her interest in counselling as it facilitated deeper understanding about the underlying reasons for certain behaviours seen in the clients. This motivated her to further her studies in counselling to support her clients better.

Lixin values her clients’ beliefs and struggles, supporting their progress and pacing alongside them on their journey to healing and growth. In her work with clients, she helps them to navigate deep-rooted problems addressing relational patterns and past traumas. She considers mental wellbeing to be equally significant as physical health. She emphasizes consistency in maintaining progress towards having a more positive lifestyle and healthy relationships.
She conducts sessions in English or Mandarin to accommodate different needs.
