Joyce is a Counsellor at St. John’s Cathedral Counselling Services. Before becoming a counsellor, Joyce worked in real estate, investment banking, and, most recently, as a lawyer. She understands first-hand what it takes to work at competitive workplaces and the challenges one may face in the journey of self-discovery.
Joyce has worked with her clients on issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, anger management, loss & grief, low self-esteem, and relationships. She strives to create an empathetic space where her clients can safely connect with their core needs, inner voices, and vulnerabilities at their own pace, with the goal of unlocking their resources and strengths for healing and growth.
Joyce adopts an integrative approach based on each client’s unique needs and goals. She draws and integrates therapeutic techniques from Emotionally Focused Therapy, the Satir Model, Compassion-Focused Therapy, Personal-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory, Narrative Exposure Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness practices.
In addition to working with her clients at SJCCS, Joyce also provides counselling support to survivors of human trafficking at an NGO in Hong Kong.
Joyce conducts therapy in English and Cantonese. She is conversational in Mandarin.
