Meet Izumi Yamaguchi

Izumi is a qualified counsellor, fluent both in Japanese and English.  Before coming to Australia in 2015, she worked in the corporate sector in Japan for five years. During that time, she developed her aspiration to help people experiencing  a range of issues around identity. That led her to further study of counselling.

Izumi can offer a non-judgmental and empathetic space to assist people experiencing a range of mental health issues and personal problems. In particular, Izumi is sensitive to the stress and issues of people from different language and cultural backgrounds who are experiencing significant changes in their new lives.
