In 2019 and 2020 she worked at YMCA in Yangon as a counselling supervisor and gained a lot of experience both personally as professionally in the painful struggle of dealing with anxiety.
Since she is back in Myanmar, Ma Cherish continued to work with individuals facing a lack of selfesteem, anxiety or depression or struggle with issues in their personal relationships including marriage, parenting and coping with major changes in life. She managed to give people the mental support to enable them to make positive changes in their lives, using cognitive behavior therapy and a client-centred approach.

Showing compassion, acceptance and understanding are only a few of her qualities and she is easy to talk to in a safe and non-judging environment.
