Let's Work Together

Kids & Teens

Individual Therapy

The teenage years can be tough on both the teen experiencing huge amounts of hormonal and social differences, as well as the family navigating this new chapter of development. Growing up in Hong Kong can be a highly stressful place with academic and social pressures unique to the city. Having a therapeutic alliance to support teens through changing social dynamics and their internal understanding as their identity develops can be the support they need to thrive. When appropriate, family and siblings sessions are also a part of the process.

For Parents

Individual Therapy

Talk therapy is a powerful tool for creating insight in a safe, confidential and caring environment. Understanding where our thoughts and behavioural patterns come from is much easier said than done. Individual therapy provides the environment to address your needs. Sometimes anxiety, depression and stress have been in the driver’s seat of your functioning for too long that they are managing us instead of us managing them

How I work

My approach to therapy is, first and foremost, relational. This means that the relationship between myself and my clients provides an anchor of safety, trust, and care from which one’s inner experience can be explored.

I am also interested in understanding your relationship to your thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences, and your world. When it comes to mental health challenges related to trauma and loss, we (understandably) struggle against our pain and the circumstances that surround it, often in an effort to banish what hurts. However, this can lead us to avoid or ignore our pain, giving us short-term relief, but potentially making us vulnerable to more enduring, long-term challenges. My approach is to support you in curiously observing and compassionately validating your pain as you build a new relationship with it.

Treatment Process

​1. Consultation

The consultation sets the stage for the treatment process. Therapeutic goals are set and you will have a  more concrete idea of what it is like to have therapy.  if we will be embarking on a 6-8 week journey together and if this is the right fit for you.

2. Therapy

Therapy sessions are typically weekly, but for those who want or need additional support, further scheduling may be added.A blend of CBT and psychodynamic tools are used in the therapy.

3. Reflection

At around the 6-week mark, there is mutual assessment on how the treatment is progressing and whether to take a break or continue with therapy.
