      With years of clinical practice in the main-stream psychology framework, Lynne is fully aware of its benefits and limitations.  Being born and raised in Taiwan, a culture rich with ancient holistic philosophical and medicinal heritages, Lynne’s innate instinct propelled her to seek complementary modalities to create a more balanced and holistic approach to counselling.  She understands that whilst the main-stream psychology  focus more on pathology , intra-personal and inter-personal issues on the cognitive, emotive and behavioural  level of  functioning; the complementary  modalities emphasise more on Well being,  environmental and transpersonal  subtle aspects. Lynne seeks to treat clients as wholesome body-mind-spirit beings for complementing the missing elements in the main-stream psychology. By combining the main-stream and complementary/alternative approaches, Lynne has seen wholesome transformative results.
