Amoy has worked in the human and education services sectors for the past 40+ years, both in Canada and in Hong Kong. Fluent in both English and Cantonese, and adopting a global perspective, Amoy who is biracial, is fully intercultural competent. She examines individual’s life experiences holistically, and views clinical situations from multiple perspectives, and within the larger context of the community and society. Bringing to her clinical work, both practice wisdom and wisdom derived from diverse and challenging personal life experiences, Amoy holds the deep belief of the importance of hope, and in the human capacity to heal and transcend from the most difficult life circumstances. Trauma work, mental health, immigration and re-settlement and, diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as inter-cultural relationships are Amoy’s primary foci areas of counselling.

Therapeutic Approach:

In my work with individuals and couples who seek help to deal with emotional and relationship traumas, and other forms of distress, with symptoms of depression and anxiety,  I primarily adopt body-based psychotherapeutic approaches that include Somatic Experiencing (SE), Bodynamic Somatic Developmental Psychology, Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP) and Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning experience (DARe) – all of which I integrate with Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Spiritual Psychotherapy.   I find that a combination of these approaches facilitates efficacious holistic healing (mind, body, emotion and spirit) at a deeper level compared to the more conventional talk therapy.  In addition, eclectically I also incorporate Mindfulness, Existential Psychotherapy, Feminist Therapy, and Past Life Regression.

Many of the presented problems can often be traced to challenges experienced in the individuals’ family-of-origins.  Unhealed wounds (abuses, dysfunctional and poor parenting, mental and physical illnesses, and food insecurity) are known to re-produce themselves a least 5 generations back through thoughts, feelings and behavioural patterns created and re-produced within the traumatized families and communities. Recent studies even find evidence that trauma can also be passed between generations epigenetically. This process of intergenerational transmission of trauma can be interrupted only when healing starts to take place, even by one family member whose healing journey will have systemic impact inter-generationally.  I have found this to be the case cross-culturally as well.
