Hi, I'm Zhiwen 👋

Everyone has their own unique experience and lifestyle. Our unique experiences can be joyful, difficult, or tough. I believe that each of us have their own individuality and their own potential, irrespective of their age, ethnicity, orientation, affinity, or past.

I am looking forward to meeting you, understanding you, and try my best to work with you, to help you with your past or current issues – to find the best possible pathway to establish a better present and future. 


It takes a great deal to recognise the fact that one needs assistance. You have already crossed that milestone. I thank and appreciate you, because it is your hard work and genuine endeavour that makes our progress possible.
