How Did We Get So Busy?

  1. Do you want to free your time?
  2. Do you feel stressed, overworked?
  3. Do you feel like running on empty?
  4. Do you find yourself rushing from one activity to another?
  5. Your to-do list is getting longer?
  6. Have you been caught in the race to get all done with no time to enjoy what life has to offer?

If you answer yes, to all of the above, it is obvious that you need to look into self-care, make room for what will nourished your body, mind and spirit.

I’ve been there, and many of my clients too. Many of us know deep down we are too busy running around, chasing things to get done. But we are also too busy to figure out how to stop being so busy.Many of my clients stated that busyness become the way of life for them for years, and they are afraid to make a change. Afraid that their career will suffer, afraid to say “NO” to people request, and felt weighted down with all these requests.It wasn’t until I experienced burn out in my own career that I understand how out of balance my life was. Relaxation implies deliberate actions. All of this takes time, and we do have sufficient time in the day to do what you were born to do. The idea is recognizing what’s importantat this state of your journey.

My job as a counselor is to help my clients dig deep to make aware what crowd your schedule with stuffs you don’t really want or need to do. I will help you get honest with what you can actually accomplish in a day. And walk with you in this journey. Types of counseling services I provide.

I am not talking about time management, nor about getting organized. It is about YOU. It is about helping you get clear about what has driven you to overload your schedule and create the lifestyle that permits you to have sufficient space to be your best self and experience the finest in your relationships and reach your full potential in your personal life and work.

How can I help you?

As a counselor, my role is to support, inspire, challenge and motivate my clients in a safe and confidential environment.


I just feel very excited and I want to share with you. I did a personality test and notice my personality has changed before and after going into therapist with you. This is amazing as I have becoming more emphatic and able to facilitate people (probably due to my pain) and am more willing to bring out best in others. I am more truthful to myself and slowly accepting who I am and not trying to act like someone I am not.
And I don’t feel angry that much when people challenge me. I can even sense their struggle of why being so difficult. I am so happy with my progress and I am practicing self compassion often. I enjoy the new me even though I am not perfect yet.


Faith is a professional and patient counsellor with geneuine heart to help. Her knowledge of humans, emotions and down to earth understanding helps in much insights about myself. She has a way of listening and reaching out to you, yet giving you the space to discover and heal at your own pace. Highly recommended!
