Coaching and Consultation

Victoria, Wolverhampton, UK, 2023

I am aware of a gradual, gentle  change in my thinking which needs time to go at its own pace. But above all is the amazing realisation that there is an understandable explanation for all that had built up in me and that I am not some sort of monster or freak. You cannot imagine what a liberation that is! So much so that I am content, for the moment, just to rest in this knowledge, never mind how it plays itself out in my behaviour and reactions (ie. I may cry again or I may not but that is a much lesser worry now that I’m at peace with myself, though I started off thinking it was the most important thing).
If you were to ask me what the single most significant thing you said to me was, I would reply that it was definitely that I needed to admit that my parents had done me an awful lot of damage but recognise that that didn’t make them bad people. That allowed me to make the admission without feeling guilty and disloyal and that was the key to a huge part of it.
So I can’t say thank you enough! It was an amazing experience and I never expected nearly 40 years of suffering and counselling to resolve itself in such a short time…..!”

S.W. London, UK, 2022

“From the moment I came across your website, you, your words and your work have resonated with me in ways no other ‘therapy’ or psychological support ever has and continue to provide a constant reminder on how and why to parent my own inner child and to love, respect and accept myself. You once told me that my mere existence gives me value and worth in this world and that is now my mantra.
Your words and wisdom continue to support me to create the life I want for myself and my own children.”

Other Reviews of Imi Lo’s Work

Leonora Obed of Ewing, New Jersey USA

“ Imi is a brave pioneer in the world of psychology, she has dared to specialize in a field that has been largely unexplored and perhaps underestimated: the field of highly sensitive and empathic persons. Her expertise also extends to the psychology of Asian culture: she dares to dig deep into the harmful stereotype of the Model Minority and how the pressure to be a “Crazy Rich Asian” harms young people, especially those who grow up in Westen cultures, are first generation immigrants, artistic unique, vocational/technical and not conforming to academic standards of being Asian, who might not fit well into a collective culture and are caught between cultures. Few psychologists have been able to pinpoint the unique dilemmas of Asians and she has been sensitive in her critical assessment, encouraging clients to embrace the ambivalence and paradox, to surrender to a higher power and not try to control everything. What I admire about Imi is her focus on understanding oneself: rather than nosediving into the prescription of antidepressants or correcting inherent flaws to make one less sensitive she encourages empathic and intense individuals to be aware of their unique temperament, to embrace this uniqueness and accept strengths and limitations, so that they are able to be alive in the world and share their gifts, rather than hiding and hoarding away their talents. This emphasis on healing through knowledge and embracing one’s individuality, rather than medicating or correcting, is what distinguishes Imi Lo as a profoundly radical and effective healer.”

Sheri, LPC

“I am an empath myself and I do struggle daily with wanting to be out in the world but sometimes it is just too much and I feel safer at home in my space. Before I embraced my gift I used to be more of an extrovert but I believe that is because I didn’t understand my gift and a disassociated a lot from my life and my issues that I believed kept me from fitting in. I use my gift with my clients and it is has been great being able to help more empaths understand who they are and what they have to offer. I too continue to work on being stronger vs feeling weaker because of my gift and your article helped. Thank you so very much. ”
