My work

Studying the health and wellness effects of Falun Gong and documenting the lived experiences of individuals from around the world who practice Falun Gong, ancient Chinese spiritual meditation practice.

Integrating Falun Gong into my counseling and lifestyle coaching practice. While working from two medical centers in Australia, I offered an integrative counseling support for those with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other stress-related issues.

My integrative helping orientation entails embracing:

  • Truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance
  • A mind-body spiritual approach
  • Cultural awareness and spiritual sensitivity
  • Cherishing the values of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy

Speaking at international conferences, local events, and giving online talks.

My professional bio

Sarawak-born Australian Dr. Margaret Trey lives in scenic Mid-Hudson region north of New York City. Inspired by her late author granduncle, she majored in English at The University of Toronto and later completed counselor training, including the Doctor of counseling degree, at the University of South Australia, Adelaide.

Dr. Trey’s upbringing profoundly impacted her affinity for traditional culture. Her maternal grandfather was a 19th century-born Taoist cultivator, healer, and physician. From her mother, who passed away at 103 years old, Dr. Trey learned the spirit and wisdom of traditional Chinese culture.

An inherent respect for antiquated wisdom inspired Dr. Trey to train in oriental medicine, Zen shiatsu, Indian and Japanese yoga, the yin-yang of foods, and Vipassana meditation—before she began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Her family lineage and belief in mind-body-spiritual approach have enthused Dr. Trey’s integrated approach towards helping others.

She creates ripples—of hope and positivity—through speaking at various events and international conferences in Australia, Canada, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States, and through her writings.

Visit her site and follow her on Safechat (MTrey) for anecdotes and reflections toward a mindful and wholesome lifestyle.
