What some of our clients have to say about therapy…

I’ve been seeing Simon now weekly for the past 6-7 months. I developed a great relationship very quickly with him, and found his patience and approach to align very well with my uncertainties to what my goals even were initially. He allowed me the space to really flex my mind, to question widely and deeply, to really revel in my esoteric thoughts and queries, and offered me the tools to really pinpoint and tackle blindspots I wouldn’t have been able to alone. I couldn’t have asked for a better sounding board. I felt comfortable, seen, heard, and most importantly, understood. Our sessions and his guidance have been invaluable in my growth as an individual and I can only recommend him highly.

I was introduced to Casey while going through a stressful time in my career and family life….  In Casey, I found a non-judgmental outlet. Casey offers perspective and empathy.  Through our sessions, I learned to ‘let go’ of certain situations and other people’s opinions. I have also learned to give myself more credit than I have ever done in my entire life, and for that I feel stronger and more confident in my own abilities. It has been a relief to declutter my mind and get to know myself better. I would highly recommend Casey to anyone.

Casey really helped me when I was in a dark place. After just a few sessions, I felt much more hopeful and could see my options better. Everything I was going through became more manageable and I could see a way forward. I learned to change my mindset and approach my problems in a more effective way. Casey is very easy to talk to and has a warm, positive energy. I would recommend her to anyone struggling to make sense of life’s hard times.

Simon is a warm soul with whom you can easily open up and share your emotions. Having that supportive and non-judgemental person in my life now gives me the comfort and confidence to work through these challenging times, with blue skies ahead.

Jacquelyn has helped me journey through one of my most difficult years… from dealing with grief to relationship issues, daily stresses, and revisiting childhood traumas.  From session one, she created a safe environment with her warmth and compassion, which allowed me to fully open up to her. She carries a wealth of knowledge, which helps me better understand why I am wired the way I am. Jacquelyn understands how to “speak my language” through meditation visualisations, hypnotherapy & self-love practices. Every time I leave a session, I am glowing with gratitude and ready to face the world!

Coming into therapy again, I was wary at first because I wasn't able to connect with my previous therapist. That's why I'm really glad I gave this another shot and found Jacquelyn, who's been wonderful since day one. Friendly, down-to-earth, and understanding while maintaining professionalism, she has helped me immensely in my journey and guided me towards gaining in-depth self-awareness and unlearning toxic patterns. It's not always an easy journey, but a good therapist can make it a lot better!

I've been meeting with Simon for over 18 months now, and during this time, Simon has made me more self aware, and more confident than the person I was 18 months ago. He's empathetic, understanding of the nuances of South Asian culture, and has done more for me than some family members. There are no words to thank him for what he's done. I have a long way to go in my mental health journey, but I wouldn't have made the progress that I have without Simon's help

VR, Marketing Manager

I reached out to Lianne during hopefully the worst time of my life - I lost the love of my life during our battle against his cancer and I felt completely hopeless to life. Lianne manages to lift me up in an endless tornado of darkness every time we speak, and she helps me to face and accept my emotions. There is still a long way to go to deal with my bereavement, but one thing I am very certain is that I am grateful to have found Lianne - I trust that she will be the one who continues this journey with me till the day I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Lianne is a very professional and insightful therapist. I started to see her every week right after our first session. She is always caring and encouraging, helping me sort out my mind, and give constructive advice on my relationship issues. I am comfortable sharing every life detail with her and feel recharged every time I talk to her. With her help I am on the track to becoming a more positive and emotionally stable person.


I started seeing Dickie while Hong Kong was still in lockdown, which had many of us in the city stressed and depressed.  It took a while for me to realise this was affecting me as well and take some steps to address it.  I met a small number of counsellors to see how we got along and in my phone call with him, Dickie seemed sensible and professional.  We started meeting weekly and we continued to meet regularly over the course of a year - much to my surprise - since it proved to be a useful part of dealing with all of the stress.  Dickie is easy to talk to, keeps good notes of our discussions and so was able to refer back to them when needed to make sure we were addressing the important issues that we had initially started our meetings to discuss.
