About me and my therapy practice

I'm originally from Hong Kong. I have 8 years of counselling and psychotherapist experiences, specialising in sexuality, gender and relationship diversity issues and adults' mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression. Currently, I'm also a Counselling Psychologist in Training (1st year Doctorate student) based in Bristol.

Since 2013, I have had extensive experiences in working with the LGBTQI+ community in Hong Kong, in particular with men who have sex with men that experienced substance use issues as well as sexual health concerns, including HIV and other STIs. 

Sessions can be conducted in Cantonese, Mandarin and/or English. I provide both in-person (in Bristol only) or online sessions.

Practice description

In terms of therapeutic approaches, I specialise in psychodynamic and client-centred approaches with the incorporation of creative methods, such as projective drawings and dream interpretation. This means that I use a variety of approaches, where each client is viewed as an individual with different needs from the therapy process.

​In psychodynamic therapy, I focus on the unconscious processes and past events, which will facilitate the client to make sense of what is going on through enhancing self-awareness into present difficulties.

Besides this, I'm a trained EMDR therapist. If you are experiencing any emotional distress followed by a traumatic experience, I am able to provide this specific psychotherapy treatment.

I offer both short-term and long-term counselling sessions.

My first session

The first step is to arrange a time for a face-to-face initial consultation (sometimes called an assessment). This is a chance for us to meet. I can find out more about your situation and you can ask any questions you might have.

​We will discuss the matters you would like to focus on and your hopes for therapy, and I will offer a suggestion for how we might proceed. We will also discuss practical arrangements, such as time and frequency of appointments.
