Alice Lam 林少玲
Hello, I’m Alice.
I wish everyone will enjoy and accept counselling as an effective tool in enriching their life journey. I believe we are all capable of healing ourselves. Often, we have blind spots that block us. We simply need someone professional to reflect for us what we fail to see at times. I, therefore, stem my approach from Person-Centred Therapy (PCT).
I am a believer that whatever our current symptomatic problems may appear, our past experiences played a significant role in its creation, hence I do enjoy working with deeper levels of core issues with my clients instead of pure behavioural changes.
In my case experiences, I’ve also seen many couples and individuals suffering from a low self worth, blocking them to live a beautiful life. I, therefore, work with a focus in exploring the self.
Before working as a counsellor, I was a senior executive working in the advertising field, where coaching and mentoring was more of the area I practiced. I happen to spend quite some years working as a volunteer in the areas of suicide prevention and baby care. These volunteering experiences inspired me to the path of Counselling.
I work well with both English and Cantonese languages, reasonable with Mandarin. I believe the more people understand and accept Counselling, the more HK will be a happier place.
