My name is Heather, and I am a mental health therapist based in Hong Kong.
I am passionate about enhancing clients’ psychological well-being and fostering a client-centered approach focusing on using mixed methods.
Over the past couple of years, I have dedicated myself to working as an in-house counselor with Justice Centre HK. My focus is on providing support to asylum seekers, refugees, victims of abuse/trauma, as well as individuals dealing with anxiety and depression.
Having experienced the unique stressors faced by minorities as a Namibian-South African educator, I have gained a deep understanding of the cultural challenges that may complicate life. I actively collaborate with translators in both my classroom and counseling practice to ensure effective communication.
In addition to my counseling work, I am a registered teacher in Hong Kong. This role has allowed me to pursue training in special education for ADHD, ASD, and SPLD through the Education University of Hong Kong.
To help you determine if we are a good fit, I offer a complimentary 30-minute chemistry meeting. Please note that this meeting is not a counseling session but an opportunity for us to connect and discuss the possibility of working together.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you!counsellor
