Yi Shing, our Founder, has extensive experience working with people distressed by challenges in life, at work and at home. At the IMH (Institute of Mental Health), Yi Shing worked with adult patients, as well as parents of distressed adolescents in its Child Guidance Clinic.
For individual clients, Yi Shing uses trauma-focused modalities such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients overcome challenges in life, career, and mental health conditions.
Yi Shing is a lifelong learner on a constant quest for treatment that is more efficacious, safe, and produces sustained healing for clients.
Yi Shing believes the more safely and efficiently we are able to treat mental health complaints, the better we are at alleviating misery of the sufferers and their families, and at reducing the period of affliction. That will in turn contribute to greater mental wellbeing and resilience of the community.
Yi Shing also works with couples in relationship and marriage therapy using Gottman Method Couples Therapy, to guide couples to repair their relationship, navigate conflicts, and to re-bond.
Our major therapeutic approaches include EMDR, DBT [Dialectical Behavioral Therapy], Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
