TESTIMONIALS for Melody:
Michelle Wong (Hong Kong)
Melody’s Mentee since 2008
Melody is a very patient and intelligent listener. I am often stuck in my own perspective and get “lost” in my world when I run into issues. Melody will empathise with me and share views from different angles which are easily missed when my judgement is clouded by emotions. I am always able to feel better and relieved after speaking to Melody. Melody is also great with her practical advice. She offers step-by-step, achievable suggestions that suit my personality. I have nothing else but praise for Melody’s mentoring, and for years she has certainly played a key role in my mental growth!
Gladys Ng (Hong Kong)
Melody’s Mentee since 2007
Melody has been mentoring me for over 15 years. She literally witnessed and provided unconditional support throughout my transition from an adolescent to an adult. She was able to lift me up when I was going through tough times by sharing a clear and objective view on various situations. Her affirmative words had assured me of my potential, while her patience and calmness had always put me at ease, so I would be more willing to seek help. Her encouragement and positivity had inspired and empowered me to pursue my dreams. Her mentorship throughout the years had definitely contributed to the success in my career and adulthood in general thus far. In sum, Melody’s mentorship and guidance were truly enjoyable and fruitful to my personal growth.
Chloe (Hong Kong)
At a crossroads of numerous paths, all fogged with uncertainty, Melody was like a warm guiding light that supported me in finding a path best suited for myself. I started sessions with her when I felt the most unhappy about my job and unresolved issues with my family, I was stuck. With her patience and sympathy, she provided me with a comfortable space to open up to great detail while she listened and responded with candour; like how she introduced me to a new perspective that helped explain the core issue of my work problem, and how to adjust my mindset to comfortably adapt. While it was only for a little over a month, Melody provided me with useful tools for my toolbox that has equipped me for the future. Thank you, Melody!
Natalie – Hong Kong
I cannot thank Melody Funk enough for the counselling services she provided. I was dealing with issues related to a lack of self-love, self-awareness and self-confidence building, and she enabled me to understand the root cause of the matter is being traced back to my childhood (how parents raise me up and related parenting skills), which shapes the current me. Melody helped me to understand that a lot of anxieties/depressions that I have been experiencing along were hypothetical worries/ideas that are self-created in my mind, which are unlikely to be happening in real life. She shared with me some quick fix methods that could help lessen my frequency of overthinking, such as introducing me to meditation music and breathing exercise which helps to ease my stress away. Melody is a patient and caring therapist, throughout the past 4 months, she is able to capture a lot of the little details related to my upbringing/issues being shared with her in each session and is able to walk through the challenge with me in a new perspective and way of thinking and handling. I observe there is a distinct improvement in my mental health and I am now able to think in a more positive way through the guidance of Melody. A big thanks to Melody for her commitment. And the most fantastic thing, it was at a price I could afford. If you need help, AMindset offers excellent and affordable counselling services with professional counsellors.
