FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU DO ONLINE SESSIONS?
Yes, I do. As I work globally and due to the current global pandemic, I see clients online through Zoom or Skype.
WHAT IS CBT?
CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In short, CBT evaluates thoughts, emotions and behaviours and looks for unhelpful patterns. These patterns are then adjusted into helpful ones.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
Generally, fees are set at $800HKD per 60 minute session although there are special circumstances for certain individuals. Duration of therapy is different for everyone. While it is usual for a course of therapy to be around 12-15 sessions, some individuals benefit from as little as 3 sessions. Others I see on an ongoing basis. You can choose to pay per session or pay for a bulk of sessions. Everything is openly discussed with you.
CAN I BOOK AN INTAKE SESSION?
Yes, of course. The first session is usually an information gathering session which is 75 minutes long, although the same price as a single session. You may be required to complete 1 or 2 short forms regarding your health. None of these forms are diagnostic tools. They are only used to help gather more information about what you might be experiencing and how the therapeutic process can help.
