The negotiation and interpretation skills, meticulous logical thinking, and the ability to view issues from different angles that she developed are all beneficial in assisting clients in exploring new perspectives and managing relationships.

Li was born in Shanghai and went to Australia in high school. Her cross-cultural background, corporate experience, and counselling speciality made her unique and well-suited for cross-culture, self-exploration, personal growth, emotion management and relationship counseling. She is a thinker who respects authentic feelings and prefers to be genuine. She believes that everyone holds a shining pearl inside but is covered with “dust,” as we often restrict ourselves with perceptive limitations and are burdened by our moods. She aims to combine her corporate experience and counseling psychology profession to help clients develop new perspectives on their issues, cultivate resilience to better cope with struggles, and explore the richness inside to live a more peaceful and fulfilling life. It is her goal that counseling will assist clients in learning to remove the “dust” and uncover the shininess of the internal pearl.
