Hello there, this is Ruth. I am a clinical psychologist registered in Hong Kong and licensed in the States. It is my belief that the topic of mental health is not just about treatment and intervention, but also prevention and self-growth. Especially when it is part of life that there are ups and downs, sometimes it might be easier to surf through the waves when we are to "invest" in developing our internal self. I believe that my role as a psychologist is to provide a non-judgmental space that could allow that internal self to feel listened to and cared for – a space that could eventually foster personal growth and self-actualization. I utilize an integrative theoretical orientation in psychotherapy with evidence-based and strength-based approaches. These primarily include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness-based approaches.

Hi, this is Arthur. I am an existential therapist with professional training in both counselling psychology and clinical psychology. Instead of understanding 'therapy' as 'treatment', I believe healing is done through encountering genuinely with the other. Having worked in the field of mental health for years, I tend to understand sufferings and symptoms are perceived as part and manifestations of life, and through a close and intimate encountering with one's existence, freedom and a meaningful living could be re-discovered through realizing one's possibilities. I am specialized in the Existential-Phenomenological approach (Daseinsanalysis, Existential-humanistic psychotherapy, and Logotherapy), and I also incorporate other psychotherapeutic approaches and philosophies in my clinical practices.

Registered Social Worker (HK)

Hi, this is Ming. I am blessed to have worked as a counsellor in the mental health field for over a decade. I perceive counselling as a delightful journey to sightsee the beautiful sceneries, explore the unknowns, and hunt the hidden treasures with my clients in their inner worlds. I understand unlocking the door of your subconscious and unconscious is a courageous endeavour. But I truly believe the value of this internal journey is unparalleled. It would be my pleasure if you invited me to be your companion to travel around internally together. As your counsellor, I will provide a warm and secure space for you to take off or land safely in any spot of your inner world. To be a good companion, I have equipped myself with adequate clinical knowledge. I am familiar with the Attachment Theory, Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy and Emotion-focused Therapy. In clinical practice, I prefer to integrate different theories and intervention models to formulate the most appropriate treatment plan for every unique individual.

Hi there! I am Vincci and had worked in Hong Kong tertiary education as a Counsellor for 18 years. I am here as I wish to listen to everything that you have in your mind. You can share all your ups and downs, or just a very small thing that lightens up or impacts your day with me. I understand that working in the medical industry is harder now than ever, which makes me eager to share your experience and support you throughout this process. With me, you are never alone as long as you trust me and allow me to be your lighthouse in the case you are lost. Together we can always find a way out. My approach to therapy is relational and integrative, applying interventions from the Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy and Person – Centered Therapy.

Hello! My name is Billy. I work as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I am looking forward to meeting with you! As someone who has experienced many changes in life, I have come to understand life is ever changing. Counselling is often seen as a last resort. While it can be, it doesn't have to be. I hope counselling can be an opportunity for us to explore our likes and dislikes, preferred and not preferred. I hope to try and accompany you on your journey until one day, at our journey's completion we can sit together and recognize the steps you've taken along the way. I am familiar with Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, both of which aim towards finding how the "others" in our lives are hindering us from our preferred selves. I look forward to exploring our preferences together!
