Megan Chang

Megan Chang

Master of Counselling, Monash University, HK.

Fee: HK$850 per 50mins. 

Languages: English, Mandarin, or Cantonese. 

Megan is a Master of counselling graduate from Monash University dedicated to counselling adults, teens, and children with issues related to anxiety, stress, depression, as well as relationship tensions.

Before counselling, Megan had worked in the financial sector for over 10 years in both Taipei and Hong Kong. She totally resonates with how one’s mental health state is intertwined with the highly stressed and sophisticated working environment. And, how these experiences affected their performance and well-being, both physically and mentally.

After moving to HK, she involved herself in several volunteer and charity works that support the well-being and living of underprivileged women, youth, and children in our community. With experiences working with teens and children in school to support their emotional regulation, learning motivation, anxiety, and relationship issues with friends and family, she found it truly rewarding to witness how adaptive and plastic are those fast-developing minds. This planted the seeds of pursuing a counselling profession that would enable her to bring substantial change to people’s lives.

Influenced by the person-centred approach, Megan strives to provide an environment where clients feel safe and at ease with her unconditional, positive regard. She is always present, respectful, and curious about how clients’ lives were shaped. Megan integrates evidence-based psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in her practice to help clients navigate their thoughts, emotions, value, purposes and expectations. “Everyone can be empowered to shape their own life” is her motto, so please reach out whenever you or your loved ones feel like talking to someone.

A free 20-minute intro consultation is available for new clients. Please email office@amindset.hk for more details.

Megan can provide counselling services in English, Mandarin, or Cantonese. Please note your preference when booking.

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.
