Therapy looks a little bit different for everyone because when it comes to mental health you cannot have a “one-size-fits-all approach”
What to expect?

 The treatment process

  • 1

    Initial Consultation

    The consultation sets the stage for what will follow. Foundational questions are covered, such as:

    • When did this first start happening?

    • Why therapy now


    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 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 to unpack and understand your thought process, relationships and protective and precipitating factors of the current situation.

  • 3


    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.


Individual Talk 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.

Treatment for

- Anxiety

- Depression

- Adjustment through change

- Mood discomfort

- Chronic stress and burnout

- Relationship hurdles

- Past trauma


Talk 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.

Treatment for

- Depression

- Anxiety

- Stress

 -Family adjustment

- Friendship & social challenges

- Self-harm


Family Therapy*

Home is where the heart is. So when there is tension at home it has an effect on everyone’s wellbeing. At times, it can feel like one family member is responsible for the chaos felt by the entire family unit. Irrespective of causality, solution occurs when the family unit cohesively works together towards strategic goals.


Family sessions allow each family member to be a part of the understanding, insight and narrative created in therapy.


Dr. Carder has a wealth of experience working with families going through divorce, adapting to change and with special needs families. Her fundamental belief is healing happens at home and all family members are a part of the solution.

Treatment for

- Divorce adjustment

- Migration adjustment

- Conflict at home
