Karuna Kapoor

Master of Counselling, Monash University, HK.

Fee: HK$850 per 50mins.

Languages: English and Hindi.

Karuna is from India and has been residing in Hong Kong for almost 25 years which she now considers her home. Although she has worked in multiple industries in the corporate sector, her attentiveness to mental wellness has been her focus from the time she studied Psychology at an undergraduate level.

Karuna has a natural interest in supporting people and believes there is always both help and hope for any person experiencing distress in all spheres and stages in life. Karuna is patient and focuses on giving her ears to her clients within a non-judgmental and confidential space. She is of acceptance that most people often just need someone non-biased to speak with to feel better. Her aim is to work collaboratively with her clients, so they feel empowered to make their own choices to optimise a balanced life.

Karuna is appreciative that many challenges often go unnoticed in adolescence and is forthcoming to aid teens, young adults, and their parents in creating meaningful relationships with themselves and others. She also uses life skills and experiences to help persons in embracing grief and loss and concurrently encourages taking steps toward self-compassion and further purpose.

Karuna considers attributes of cognizance and vigilance as key components to adopting healthy thought processes. Karuna regards counselling as a powerful proactive and reactive medium to mitigate several mental health concerns with the aid of psychoeducation.

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.

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.

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.
