    When I first started seeing Christine for counseling, I was having some problems at work. It’s hard for me to admit but I was feeling totally overwhelmed, which made it even harder for me to figure out where to turn for help. Going to see Christine really helped me to get things sorted out so that now I feel much more confident not only at work but about life in general.

    I encountered some personal issues while living in Shanghai and decided to visit Christine.  I found a reliable, professional and talented psychological counselor. Christine helped me get through all my issues patiently and steadily, and step by step my situation gradually improved. Using her skilled techniques I managed to overcome the troubles I encountered and more important is that Christine supplied me with the necessary “tools” to deal with those issues if will happen in future.

    After about eight months in Shanghai I had thought I would be adjusted to life here but I wasn’t. Instead of things getting easier, it felt like they were getting more difficult – most likely due to the pressure building at work. Christine really helped me to get some insights into what was going on and learn how to cope with it differently.
