About me and my therapy practice
H.E.R.MAN COUNSELLING CONSULTANCY (Happy Exploration & Reflective MANkind) is run by me, Herman CHAN, a Registered Social Worker (RSW), a Member of Hong Kong Professional Counselling Association (MHKPCA), a Member and Registered Counsellor of Australian Counselling Association (MACA) and a Registered Member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) in Jan 2020. With more than 20 years’ experience in social work, Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), counselling and psychotherapy, mental health service, crisis intervention and etc., H.E.R.MAN COUNSELLING CONSULTANCY aims at providing emotional or relational counselling or psychotherapy to the clients in order to enhance their self-esteem or life fulfilment by developing their potential as well as resilience in facing different challenges in their lives.
To meet the specific needs of the client, I try my every effort to strike a balance between flexibility and strict adherence in practicing the case conceptualization methods as well as intervening strategies of different therapeutic approaches. Throughout the years of practice and learning, I have a different experiences in practicing with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Reality Therapy (RT), Satir Model, Bowen Family Systems Therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA) and etc.
Besides conventional counselling and psychotherapy, with various first-handed experience, training and study findings, the consultancy services for communication skills, customer services, complaint handling, team building, conflict/HR/project/change management are also available in order to facilitate different individuals, organisations or even corporates to deal with their current or future issues.

My first session
During our first session, I will endeavour to make you feel comfortable, understood and safe.
In due course, a discussion will be carried out to explore what has brought you to therapy. Meanwhile, I will explain to you how I work and how the counselling sessions may be able to help you. To achieve this, it may involve me asking you a few questions about things such as what are your goals, what would you like to get out of therapy. The first session may also involve completing a short questionnaire about your mood and current psycho-social conditions, etc, this will enlighten me with the world you are living in and where I may be able to help you more.
If we both agree that we would like to work together, I will explain to you what you can expect from me and would like you to consider, such as appointments/cancellations/confidentiality, etc. We will then both sign a written consent that agrees on a number of sessions and begin our journey.
