About Beatrice Ng-Kessler
Registered Clinical Psychologist, UK Chartered Psychologist
Canada Certified Mindfulness Trainer
MSSc (HKU), RCP (HKPS), CPsychol (BPS)
I am a clinical psychologist with experience in diverse settings including public hospitals and non-governmental organizations. In my private practice, I have worked extensively with clients having depression, anxiety issues, relationship problems, childhood trauma, and complicated grief. My treatments include Cognitive-behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT), Grief Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Mindfulness etc.
In the past, I have worked extensively with dying patients and those fighting or recovering from serious illnesses like cancer, working with patients and their family members suffering from depression and anxiety. I am also part of the Supporting team at Hong Kong Integrated Oncology Centre.
I specialize in the use of mindfulness to support well-being. I have completed a series of teacher training and participated in a number of meditation retreats, as well as worked with the Chinese University of Hong Kong to research the application of mindfulness for complicated grief. I have run workshops on mental health topics, and currently teaching Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to help professionals and the public in Hong Kong.
I was driven by passion in my role as a helping professional. Even while witnessing immense emotional and physical suffering, as well as death, I developed a strong faith in each individual's potential for healing and growth. I treasure my time with my clients for the insights and hope which every encounter contributes to.
