Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

~ Mary Oliver

Asuka holds a deeply nurturing, imaginative and grounded therapeutic space. Her approach is person-centred, strengths-based and non-judgemental, helping individuals to make sense of their lives in a creative and transformative way. She appreciates the wholeness of self and the transience of life, and works from this place; viewing challenges and suffering, as well as inspiration, as an opportunity for growth and personal freedom.

Her personal vision is to be of service to humanity by practicing radical kindness, self-awareness and assisting others in their lives, wherever they may be, whatever has happen, to move towards greater wellbeing, peace and joy.

Asuka has experience working in diverse settings with children, adolescents and adults dealing with issues ranging from anxiety, stress, depression, grief and loss, self-esteem, Autism Spectrum challenges, domestic and family violence and trauma. As well as crafting vision sessions for those feeling ‘stuck’, desiring greater clarity, confidence and creativity in their lives. She has a particular interest in working with children and teenagers around mental health issues, behavioural difficulties, learning disabilities and challenging life circumstances and transitions.
