Hello, I’m Yingli.

Welcome to “Feeling Good Enough” Counselling in Surbiton & Kingston – South West London KT6

I am an integrative transpersonal counsellor/psychotherapist with a private practice in Surbiton (South West London), where I provide personalised, confidential and relaxed one-to-one counselling sessions for individuals seeking help with emotional, personal or relationship issues. I work face to face and also offer online counselling for international clients via Skype. I offer sessions in English and Mandarin.

I understand reaching out for support and finding the right therapist is not always easy, it involves trusting the process and embracing the uncertainty. I hope the information provided here will help you see whether my background, experience and training is likely to meet you needs.

Setting “feeling good enough” as my main therapeutic aim is because, I realise the importance of having high self-worth for mental and emotional health, and its specific manifestation is feeling good enough about ourselves, which allows us to remain resilient and courageous in the face of inevitable difficulties in life. I deeply believe that feeling good enough and feeling worthy – to recognise and embrace our own uniqueness and innate self-worth is our birth rights, which can be achieved through ongoing effective counselling.

During our journey together, my aim as a counsellor is to form a relationship with you that reflects the very individual nature of your soul and personality and allows you to work at your pace. No matter what your current challenges are, I will provide you a warm, safe and non-judgemental space to hold you and your concerns. In this space that is free from judgement, your self-acceptance and self-worth will emerge and be nourished, and you will feel better and better about who you are and begin to thrive to reach your true potentials in life.
