My name is Elaine Lim. I have called my website Ying Yang Therapy because, just as in the ancient Taoist concept of non-dualism, I believe that counselling and psychotherapy is a fundamental bringing together of two or more seemingly opposite or conflicting parts within us so that we may become whole. As a psychotherapeutic counsellor in training, I offer low-cost counselling (under supervision) in Angel, North London. I am working towards a MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology/Psychotherapy awarded by The Institute of Psychosynthesis in affiliation with Middlesex University. I work with a broad range of personal difficulties such as:
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Depression, or ongoing sadness
  • Loneliness, and a yearning to “belong”
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement, loss and separation
  • Trauma and crisis
  • Desire for greater creative expression
  • Addiction
  • Feelings of meaninglessness and lack of direction
  • Struggles with life transitions
My intention is that I provide a safe, non-judgmental listening ear to those in need. To this end, I am able to call upon my training and studies in both Eastern (yoga, meditation, tantra) as well as Western (astrology, tarot, plant medicines) spirituality and mysticism. Together, we will work towards strengthening your connection to your innermost being, giving you tools to be able to access your own inner guidance and wisdom, such that over time you are gradually able to come into a more grounded and centred space within your being. I would also like to work with you on opening your heart to all the joy, beauty and abundance that is your birthright. My ultimate aim is that you should be able to step into being a conscious co-creator of your own reality and connect to your soul’s infinite creative potential, thereby empowering you to achieve your heart’s deepest desires in this life.
