She has been a consultant with different agencies such as social workers, education system counselors as well as leading and teaching in both individual and group format in Taiwan, China, and HK.
Magna is a first generation born in Taiwan from parents who left China and yet the connection with China has brought her to an awareness and a deeper understanding of generational trauma work. She has shared her trauma work and promoted SE trainings in Taiwan and China for many years and now she is honored to have the privilege to teach Somatic Experiencing training in her native language -Mandarin with the intention of bringing awareness to cultural differences in trauma healing work.
Since 1990 she has been significantly influenced by the meditation Master Osho and her Breath energy work teacher Dwari Deutsch who guided her into body mind integration work and got her interested in somatic developmental psychology and family system.
There were two reasons that encouraged her into trauma work one was that she found people were longing to find an inner peace and the ability to relax in present time though they found that meditation or mindfulness often led to a feeling of disconnection and or a busy mind. Some were having uncomfortable memories even flashbacks. As a therapist she felt it necessary to explore the truth behind this and how she could assist in helping them achieve their goals.
The second reason was as she was involved in her practice in Perth West Australia with refugee immigration, an understanding for the need that she had to learn the trauma work and be more involved in the field of neurophysiology.
In 2009 started by taking the Somatic Experiencing® training Magna has been influenced by all the great teachers such as: Dr. Peter Levine, Maggie Kline, Dr. Abi Blakeslee, Dr. Sonia Gomes, Dr. Stephen Porges, Deb Dana, Babette Rothschild, Myrna Martin, and Merete Holm Brantbjerg etc. till now.
She specializes both in individual and group work in PTSD, chronic distress, generational and development trauma.
Her professional enthusiasm is to supports the individual to integrate the body and mind by becoming their natural self and enjoy the life.
Her personal loves are meditation, nature, animals, music, family, and friends.
