Hi and welcome!
I am Huay Khem and I am here to help you in your healing journey to alleviate your sufferings. My own healing experiences inspired me to help others develop strong interpersonal and coping skills to manage the demands of this taxing society. It required me to summon courage and determination to dive into the field of counselling after having more than 25 years of professional experience in Training profiles.
I hold a Master of Counselling (Advanced) with Swinburne University of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with SIM University. I have received training in various treatment modalities such as Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Family Therapy, Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy, Choice Theory Reality Therapy, Transactional Analysis, 5-PATH Hypnotist, and 7th PATH Self Hypnosis Teacher training.
From my freelance and volunteer counselling work at various non-profit organisations, I have accumulated a wealth of counselling experiences that cover everything from relationship difficulties to mental health issues.
Besides working with couple and family, I also work with individuals who face issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, work stress or relationship challenges and self-growth.
I believe the key to maintaining a strong and healthy mental state and relationship, whether be it in the family unit or society at large, requires both psychotherapy interventions and systematic development of coping skills and personal resources.
Being both, a Counsellor and a Trainer, I posses a unique insight into how people view their issues and am able to successfully help them develop interpersonal skills to cope with their problems effectively.
As a therapist, I embrace all clients with compassion and empathy. My ability to build strong therapeutic alliance and trust with my clients has helped them overcome a range of psychological and emotional issues.
Other than being a conscientious, motivated, and respectful person, I love life and approach people authentically. I always endeavour to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for others, making me a therapist you can feel at ease with.
