Lena has over 12 years of experience as a counsellor and consultant. Before relocating to Singapore, Lena owned a private consultancy and training agency in Malaysia. She also held a regional management position in a global organisation, specialising in the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). Her role included managing and implementing the Health and Wellbeing Programme to meet the cultural and social contexts of the various local and global organisations. Her role included providing EAP consultation for crisis intervention, psychological safety, workplace issues, people management, employee issues around burnout, emotional regulations and mental health challenges at the workplace.
Lena is competent in Solution-focused and Wellness coaching. She is trained in the Tavistock method of Infant Observation, which focuses on the human pre-verbal internal world and emotional states. Her approach in therapy is the integration of Expressive Arts and talk therapy as she helps her clients connect with their unconscious processes to address deep-seated issues that cause emotional pains and/or shadowboxing in relationships. She also supports her clients in building mastery by helping them to integrate life practices while regaining effectiveness, peace and happiness.
A mother of a school-going child, Lena invests her free time in Chinese calligraphy and ink painting.
