Journeys into the heart of life

Finding self-empowerment in the midst of challenges and trauma

With the good in life comes the bad, and the last thing you want is to be stuck in pain, doubt, guilt, shame, indecision, despair or conflict. You can choose to walk a journey with our counsellor at Hope and Heart Counselling to find your own empowerment and healing. We seek to support you to make your decisions, choose your path, create your own meaning in line with your beliefs, culture and spirituality.

Who is Karon?

Karon Ng is an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Level 2 trained therapist. IFS is a model of psychotherapy that has been shown to help with trauma, depression, and anxiety. In the course of her work life and as a counsellor, she has helped ex-offenders and their families, as well as adults and youth struggling with issues like self-harm, suicide, abuse, depression, anxiety, work challenges and relational difficulties.


Karon is also trained in the concepts of cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, the stages of change, structural family therapy, trauma, and somatic work.


She completed a qualitative research project as well on the practice of counselling, that uncovered what seasoned counsellors actually do in therapy sessions. Key findings include the counsellors’ experience of therapeutic presence and how they each work in the moment, holding space and intervening in the here-and-now, regardless of the modalities they employ.

What are the outcomes?

The outcomes are unique to you. At Hope and Heart Counselling, we will set goals together at the start of the therapy and track the achievement of the goals throughout our time together. Below are some examples of what can be achieved.

You have a safe space to voice and explore your struggles and uncomfortable thoughts. Together, we can work towards resolution, healing or new perspectives.

You gain clarity over your desired choices that are in line with your values and goals. The parts of you with different wants come to an agreement on the way forward.

Your grief or pain is no longer overwhelming and you find internal release and acceptance. Meaningful perspectives emerge that empower and enable you.

You act less out of automatic compulsion in your parenting, relationships, decisions or actions, and are empowered internally to lead with purpose and your desired values.
