Lena's career spanned borders. She owned a private consultancy and training agency in Malaysia and held a regional management position in a global organisation, specialising in the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). Her role included management and consultation for crisis intervention, psychological safety, workplace issues, people management, employee issues around burnout, emotional regulations and mental health challenges. 

 

With a decade of experience supporting diverse individuals, Lena provides grounding and nurturing support in assisting clients to heal from psychological pains and mental health challenges. She integrates expressive arts and talk therapy to help her clients work through repetitive patterns of emotional dysregulation and troubling thoughts that disrupt everyday life. Her training in the Tavistock method of infant observation on the human pre-verbal internal world and emotional states contributes to her competency in helping her clients connect with their deep-seated issues that cause emotional pains and shadowboxing in relationships. 

 

Cases Lena sees include low-risk self-harm, inertia, depression and anxiety. 

 

Outside of her professional life, Lena is a mother to a school-going child and finds solace in Chinese calligraphy and ink painting art during her free time.
