Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist
Fee: HK$1,150 per 50mins.
I am Psychotherapist working most often with adults and adolescents who wish to separate from anxiety (specific and general) and addictions (substance and process), as well those recovering from the effects of trauma. I also routinely work with relationship issues, problematic patterns of thinking and behaviour, body image and issues relating to sex, shame and guilt.
I believe we have innate abilities to grow emotionally and self-heal, but our environments (our culture, family of origin, and societal narratives) recruit us into believing this is not the case: that we are not good enough, cannot cope or are in some other way ‘broken’. I see it as my role as a psychotherapist to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore these issues, build awareness around them and make choices about how to move froward and live your life differently.
I practice from a Humanistic position, that you are the expert in your life and by exploring who you are outside of the problem you are facing, we can identify the strengths, knowledge and values needed to work with the discomfort or pain you have been experiencing. I work integratively by drawing from a wide variety of methods to create a treatment in collaboration with you, which is specific to you. My trauma work is informed by Narrative Therapy together with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Mindfulness.
I also facilitate counselling groups for men wishing to separate from unhelpful sexual behaviours and to live in more fulfilling and loving relationships. To find out about joining one, please schedule a free 20-minute assessment by emailing email@example.com.
I am committed to working with my clients to the highest levels of practice standards with regard to ethics, technical expertise and client care. I practice within the strict professional guidelines of the Hong Kong Society of Counselling & Psychology and constantly review and improve my practice by undertaking ongoing training to ensure the most up-to-date research informs my work.
Originally from Scotland, I have enjoyed a varied career, holding leadership positions in global professional service firms, an MBA (UK) and professional finance qualifications (UK and Australia). All of which bring depth and breadth to my psychotherapy work.
