I am a UK trained Psychotherapist, MBACP Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner.
As well as psychodynamic therapy, I integrate EMDR, Eye-Movement Desensitization Processing into my work.
“Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders” (EMDRIA.ORG). I am an approved therapist of the EMDR Association of Hong Kong.
I have facilitated process groups for individuals who were struggling with bereavement and grief. I recognize how isolating grief can be and the impact this has upon people and their relationships with others.
I am a native English speaker and can also work with clients who are Deaf and use British Sign Language.
Please Note that I will be taking on new clients from May for online therapy. Please reach out to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
I have been described as an empathic, warm, and compassionate Psychotherapist. I work with clients to explore the underlying aspects of themselves they may not always be aware of, to understand how they see themselves, how they deal with others and see the world. I work with clients to understand why they keep behaving or thinking in a particular way, or why certain things keep happening to them (for example repetitive patterns in relationships).
I work with clients so that together we can try to understand the influence past experiences in life have had on them and how it impacts them in the present day. I believe that when a client has awareness of this, they can move towards changing these patterns of behaviour.
I have experience of working with clients with a range of presenting issues including working with traumatic events, both cumulative and single events, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, lack of confidence, struggling with decision making, grief, relationship issues, transitions.
Having worked as a Psychotherapist in Hong Kong for the past 4 years I understand the high pressure of work within certain industries and the impact that this has on clients
