Edwina Cheung 張佩賢
I have over ten years of coaching, counselling and mentoring experiences. In addition to working with my clients to cope with their emotional issues through counselling, I also facilitate them to actualize their potential at work via executive coaching, and to live a fulfilling life through life coaching. I love working with young and middle-aged adults – to help them improve their relationships at work with their bosses, peers and subordinates; to deal with their work challenges such as leadership, desire to get promotions, new responsibilities, career changes etc.; to better their relationships at home with their parents, siblings, partners and children (parenting); to cope with emotional issues such as stress, anxiety and depression etc. and adjustment issues such as retirement, relocation etc.
Interventions that I use comprise mainly Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing for coaching and counselling; and if clients would like to tap into their subconscious resources, I would use hypnotherapy.
I worked in the financial and business sectors for many years, where I had held various senior positions. I am currently an independent non-executive director of a company in the financial sector. I am also an instructor for a lay counselling program organised by an NGO, as well as an independent manager of the independent management committee of a school for mentally challenged students.
I am married with one young adult son. I am proficient in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.
