Taipei's English-Speaking Counseling, Coaching, & Clinical Hypnotherapy
Trilingual | Holistic | Multicultural Awareness | LGBTQIA+ ALLY
Having practiced as a psychotherapist, Lillian became aware that that the traditional model of counseling/psychotherapy may be too limiting to help each unique client. Therefore, she has incorporated her professional and personal experiences to help clients through Transformation Work, in order to see and help each individual as a holistic being. Transformation Work flexibly adopts some or all of the models below, depending on what works best for the client. Lillian has to get to know you before she can reasonably apply the appropriate model(s). Contact Lillian.
Individual counseling, couples/marital counseling, and family therapy are some of the models with which Lillian is familiar. Please refer to the “expertise” page for a list of her practice area. With her multicultural competency and trilingual ability, she often finds herself especially useful in cross-cultural relationship issues. In addition to general areas of counseling, she is regarded as one of the rare pioneers in Asia in the subjects of narcissistic abuse and CPTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder ). Learn about her background and expertise under the site menu’s “THERAPIST” category. Contact Lillian.
Lillian provides executive coaching, relationship coaching, and life coaching. Despite coaches come from various walks of life, having a mental health professional as your coach is considered safer and more holistic. Click here to learn why. Compared to counseling, coaching is a more directive, behavioral, goal-oriented, short-term approach in helping clients reach specific goals. It works well and effectively for clients who do not have significant “emotional blockage.” For clients who may not easily act on directive advice and plans, Transformation Work may be a more helpful option. Contact Lillian.
Lillian utilizes clinical hypnotherapy to help clients better themselves. It is a collaborative process, aiming to reach your healthy, reasonable goal. She emphasizes on establishing your independent ability in sustaining the benefit. However, Lillian no longer accepts hypnotherapy requests, because she has discovered that many people unknowingly misused and self-prescribed hypnotherapy to enable their existing issues or create long-term issues. She might suggest hypnosis/hypnotherapy when she believes that it can be beneficial in Transformation Work. Therefore, you are encouraged to start with Transformation Work and let the process unfold the most appropriate modality for you. No matter which type of service you receive, she will never perform hypnosis without your informed consent. Contact Lillian.
There are many modalities in hypnotherapy, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy is one of them. Dr. Milton Erickson is regarded as the legendary practitioner of hypnotherapy, who was a psychiatrist and psychotherapist. (Read this book: My Voice Will Go with You: The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erickson.) Lillian has been trained and certified by the Milton Erickson Foundation. As Ericksonian hypnotherapy is extremely creative, dynamic, and go-with-the-flow for amazing outcomes, it works best without the traditional, rigid time structures. To utilize Ericksonian Hypnotherapy’s unique approach, Lillian has discovered that Transformation Work provides an excellent integration for it, so she will suggest you start from there. Contact and discuss with Lillian.
Through hypnosis techniques, Lillian takes you onto the exploration of your past lives. She has attended the seminar of Dr. Brian Weiss – renowned past life regression therapist and psychiatrist – and greatly appreciates his work. You are encouraged to read his many best-selling books, such as Many Lives, Many Masters, although his spiritual ideology does not reflect Lillian’s. Lillian does not impose any ideology, or the presumption of the existence of past lives, but rather simply assists you to take charge of your own journey in a scientific manner. Lillian provides past life regression therapy only to meet the client’s curiosity, not to accommodate any alternative purpose, such as but not limited to: trauma healing, mental health improvement, personal growth, medical issues improvement, etc. You may or may not discover your past lives, and it will be the result of your unbiased, full autonomy. To maximize your well-being, she emphasizes the pre-screening and after-care process, instead of commercially selling this service on demand. Fill out this form if you are seeking past life regression therapy.
Support groups of various themes are available at different times. Please visit this website periodically to find out if there is a group available. Or, you may request to be added to a waiting list for a future group or future opening. If you would like Lillian to facilitate a group which you have organized, feel free to contact her.
As Lillian wears many hats, she may, upon requests, provide consultation to mental health professionals, as well as human resources assistance, book clubs hosting, lecture, presentation, translation, and more. Lillian is the translator of California psychotherapist Pete Walker’s incredible books Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving: A GUIDE AND MAP FOR RECOVERING FROM CHILDHOOD TRAUMA and The Tao of Fully Feeling: Harvesting Forgiveness out of Blame. She is also the first person in the Chinese-speaking region of Asia who systematically writes and publishes educational articles about narcissistic abuse. Lillian may be able to help expats navigate the local system and culture as needed. Lillian is passionate about helping others. Contact Lillian to find out if she can help.
