Eugene’s Journey

Eugene has always been curious about looking beyond the surface of a person even as a child.  This contrasts sharply with the notion of “Face” placed in the Asian culture he has grown up in.  He wants to know the person behind the “Face” – what drives them, what motivates them, how they overcome their problems.    This curiosity drove Eugene to become a psychologist, to look for depth in the human experience.

Eugene is also fascinated with different cultures and the uniquely different ideas that come from these cultures.  He has lived in many places and exposed himself to different people.  These included: living in China (Sichuan province); staying in England where he worked with disabled and homeless people, and more recently, working as a psychologist in Australia.  These experiences have broadened Eugene’s understanding of people, and made him even more open-minded.  These encounters have also exposed Eugene to the experience of being a cultural minority in a new country, placing him in a unique position to help other migrants.

Eugene’s Approach as a Psychologist
Eugene uses a variety to psychological techniques to help his clients.  He uses a humanistic  and psychodynamic approach when applying these techniques.  This means that he respects the person behind their mental health symptoms.  He is always seeking to help his clients become more aware of the complex feelings and thoughts driving their actions, and how they handle problems in their lives.  Eugene believes that understanding oneself in this way increases a person’s ability to view life problems creatively, and to find unique solutions to them.
