Hi, I am Yingli
(All sessions are being provided online via Zoom until further notice. I offer sessions in English and Mandarin.)
Have you ever felt low in self-esteem or a lack of self-worth?
⮕ Do you feel insecure and insubstantial?
⮕ Do you value other people's opinions more than yours?
⮕ Do you always seek validation and approval from others?
⮕ Do you find it difficult to advocate for what you need?
⮕ Do you like yourself for who you are?
If you have found my work, I believe you are a seeker of personal growth and transformation. If you feel the above questions are relevant to your current situation, my service may be of resource to you. I'm here to help you with guidance and tools to work though these problems.
Hello, I am Yingli. I am an Integrative and Transpersonal Counsellor and a Mother-Daughter Relationship Coach based in Central and Southwest London.
I meet clients in Clapham Junction, London Bridge and Surbiton (KT6), and I also provide Online Counselling for clients who prefer online engagement. I am a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)and strictly adhere their ethical framework.
While I work with various mental and emotional problems or stress, I am specialized in working with women's low self-esteem and self-worth issues. My aspiration is to help women acquire tangible guidance to overcome low self-esteem and fragile self-worth, so you can become the self-assured woman and live a more authentic and purposeful life.
Besides the professional counselling and psychotherapy training, I am also an experienced Mother-Daughter Relationship Therapist and Coach. I have worked with many daughters individually 1:1 online via Zoom over the world, including Europe, US, Canada, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korean, and help them set healthy boundaries with their mother, and as well as get their inner and outer relationship with their mother transformed.
There are many causes of low self-esteem, and it often begins in childhood. The judgemental attitude of an authoritative figure when you were growing up can easily chip away your self-esteem, being bullied at school can also cause low self-esteem, and so forth.
The mother-daughter relationship is probably the most profound relationship of all. Popular wisdom often tells us that mothers and daughters are supposed to be close, therefore it's very difficult for mothers and daughters to talk about their relationship difficulties. Mother-daughter counselling require sensitivity and tact, which I ensure in each and every case.
Complex PTSD is caused by severe, repetitive trauma that typically happens in childhood. In other word, the person is marinated in a traumatic environment in which he/she suffers ongoing onslaughts.
People who migrate experience many stresses that can impact their mental and emotional wellbeing, including the loss of cultural norm, lack support network, adjustment to a new culture and changes in identity etc. As an immigrant, I know what it’s like to have the feeling of being on the edge and a sense of confusion and loss of my own roots.
Relationship Issues, Friendship Problems
Maybe you are in a relationship that doesn’t serve you, but somehow you are scared to leave. Maybe you've been rocked by a break up and feel utterly disappointed and hurt. Maybe you are struggling to make friends with people you feel really see and understand you. I can help you understand your needs and wants so you can make better connections with people.
Eating problems can give rise to numerous psychological symptoms, such as shame and self-loathing, depression and anxiety, a disturbed body image, and a tendency to isolate from others. I believe the thoughts and feelings about food is the thoughts and feelings about everything in life, so I’d like to help you understand your relationship with food and cultivate a healthy eating.
'Self-worth is vital to our wellbeing and happiness. If you feel good enough about yourself, it's easy to feel good about anything else.'
Over the years, I have seen so many women are struggling with low self-esteem and low self-worth. I myself have also been fallen into these pitfalls. There is often a sense of not belonging and loneliness behind a disempowering belief that 'we are not enough for who we are'.
Anxiety & Depression Counselling in London has to factor in all of the pressures of living in an ever-changing world, where many women, struggle to find our authentic voices and live our true worth.
That's why I commit myself to help women overcome low self-esteem and reconnect with your intrinsic self-worth, so you can enjoy an emotionally connected and supportive bond with others, and live a more meaningful and authentic life without guilt.
"I have been working with Yingli for seven and a half months, and every week I look forward to our sessions. As a person, Yingli always brings her quietly-sunny expression, and as a therapist she is very attuned & perceptive. She is able to quickly adapt her methods to my needs – whether a conversation, a brief meditation, a fun game of drawing etc, depending on what mood or depth I bring to the session on that day. Our conversation goes far beyond just talking. Her enquiries often offer a very unique surprising angle, which I find extremely beneficial and for which I am grateful. Thank you, Yingli!"

"When I first met Yingli I was struggling with confidence issues, which was having a huge effect on my resilience and perspective on life. Through our time together, Yingli has helped me to better connect to my emotional wellbeing and identified the things that impact my mental health negatively. I thoroughly value our sessions together, which create a safe, non-judgementmal and honest space for me to reflect and decompress each week, troubleshooting issues and celebrating the life’s wins. I feel now lighter, more resilient and confident even through the harder days, and as result my relationships with other people and most importantly, myself, have blossomed."

"I came to Yingli looking for someone who could help me through issues around guilt and anxiety. After some unfruitful counselling sessions elsewhere, I contacted Yingli as I felt I needed someone who understood the issues I had around my ethnic and cultural upbringing. From the outset, I found it very easy to speak with Yingli and I always felt heard and understood. I found that I was often surprised by some of the questions she would ask me, and how it'd frame my issues in a new light and help me to navigate my problems in a different and helpful way. Yingli always keeps the goals in focus, which keeps sessions on track and constructive and because of this I made really good progress. She's certainly helped me to regain faith in counselling and I would return to her or recommend her sessions without hesitation."
