Approach & Values

Qinqin prioritizes establishing a nurturing rapport with clients and developing a deep understanding of their uniqueness and complexity. Believing that suppressed emotions lead to blockage of energy that manifests as neurotic symptoms, Qinqin encourages clients to get more in touch with their body and feelings, and process unresolved painful experiences. One’s thoughts and beliefs construct the reality one lives in, Qinqin’s integrative approach, with specialized training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT and mindfulness, emphasizes changing maladaptive or distorted cognitions, gaining insight into root causes of patterns and conflicts, and thus acquiring effective coping strategies and sustainable positive change. Qinqin speaks Mandarin and English.
