Kelly Hutchison

Kelly Hutchison

Master of Counselling Monash University.

Fee: HK$1,150 per 50mins. 

Languages: English. 

Kelly is a corporate executive by background, with 20+ years of working across multiple industries and geographies.  She is also a qualified executive coach. She loves working with clients who are motivated to change and ready to look inward.  Often, people come to counselling with a sense of disconnect or a gut feeling that something isn’t working or isn’t where it should be.  Kelly’s own journey in therapy began with this ‘dissonance’, and she loves working with her clients to discover (or re-discover) who they really are, and what they really want.  The answers to our challenges in life nearly always lie within us, and Kelly works with her clients to build the confidence and self-belief they need to make a productive change and live a life that is true to themselves.  Inevitably, meaningful change results in uncertainty and turbulence, and Kelly’s focus on building resilience and adaptability helps her clients to navigate this change with greater clarity, calm, and purpose.

Kelly’s clients describe her as warm, open, supportive, and unconventional.  Sessions are often a mix of laughter and tears as clients work to understand and challenge themselves in a safe, caring environment. Kelly’s approach is person-centred, drawing on a range of therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI); she is also a student of the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy. She has a wide range of interests including women’s identity and confidence, life transitions, trauma, healthy aging, couples & relationships, and men’s mental health. ​  She also enjoys working in underserved communities, particularly adults with special needs.

In her free time, Kelly can be found on the water or on one of Hong Kong’s beautiful trails.  She was born and raised in the US and is also an Australian citizen and Hong Kong Permanent Resident.

Dr. Jaideep Sengupta

Dr. Jaideep Sengupta

Master of Counselling, Monash University, HK.

Fee: HK$850 per 50mins. 

Languages: English.

Jaideep holds a PhD in Management (with a background in Psychology), and a Masters in Counselling. His approach to counselling draws on his academic background, his 25+ years of experience as a university professor with experience in Europe, Asia, and the US, as well as his formal counsellor training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance-Commitment Therapy. Jaideep believes that a few fundamentals underlie all counselling techniques: compassion, empathy, and non-judgmental listening. Mental health issues become worse when they are ignored, and when the individual does not have a safe space to speak out about those issues. Jaideep approaches every session, and every client, with a commitment to providing that safe space, and with the goal of maximizing each individual’s sense of self-worth. He looks forward to helping you embark on your own healing journey.

Focal areas of interest: Anxiety/Depression; Relationship Issues; Couples Therapy.

Qualifications:

  • MBA (Indian Institute of Management), PhD in Management (UCLA), Master of Counselling, Monash University.

TESTIMONIALS for Jaideep:

I am so glad I found the AMindset team with their low cost and affordable counselling services. I cannot thank Jaideep enough for the counselling he provided. For too long I was dealing with anger and anxiety. Jaideep helped me to understand how these issues had developed and how they were affecting my life and those around me. In just 6 months Jaideep helped me develop a greater understanding of myself and enabled me with tools and techniques to get back to living the life I want to live.

Jaideep saved my marriage and made me mentally healthy again!

During COVID, I was very stressed both at work and at home. It was a turning point for me when I met Jaideep at AMindset. I could not thank him enough for his magic work – he helped me to unlock the inside struggle I had and patiently guided me to have more positive thinking. He is very observant and professional – he remembers things we said and draws connections for me to realise how things come together. Moreover, I particularly appreciate his wealth of experience and knowledge in life which enables him to offer different perspectives every time. Also, I want to take this opportunity to thank AMindset’s low-cost counselling services and Liz McCaughey!

_________________________

I’m very grateful for the counselling services that Jaideep Sengupta provided. I was dealing with anxiety stemming from a painful childhood. In the period of six months, he helped me understand how the problem manifested and introduced me to ways that I could move on from the past, to be assertive and live a happy life, which I have long thought would never happen. 

Thanks to AMindset’s low cost and affordable counselling services.
