My name is Linglin Shi. I’m from Yiwu, Zhejiang province, China. I used to be a medical doctor in a local public hospital in Yiwu, China. I trained as a doctor for 5 years and worked as a physician for 5 years.

I decided to change my career into counselling because I realized that it’s also important to nourishing people’s spirit instead of just curing people’s body. The counselling program offered by University of Waikato is based on narrative therapy. There is a motto in narrative therapy says, “The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem”. It resonates with my value. Then I started my master’s degree in University of Waikato for my learning to be a counsellor.

I can offer counsellin sessions in English and Chinese. Please feel free to contact me.
