Areas where our highly experienced Psychologists can provide expert individualised care and support through Psychotherapy and Counselling:

We recognize the impact a place such as Hong Kong can have on a relationship. This can affect people that have been raised in Hong Kong and more so, expatriates and their spouses or partners who are new to Hong Kong. Challenges in relationships can come across at any point. What’s important is to recognize the challenge and consciously take a step towards building a healthy relationship. We understand the sensitive nature of these issues and provide a private and safe space for you and your significant other as you work towards resolving and rebuilding your relationships.
