Dr Joy Wong
Health Psychologist (she/her)
I am a passionate and experienced UK/Hong Kong registered psychologist. I have been known as a client-centered, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist (CBT) with extensive research and clinical experience of emotional disturbances and self-harm behaviours in children, young people and their families. I have worked in private hospitals and clinics for over 20 years, and also started to see clients online since the pandemic.
My clients mostly see me for mood (e.g., depression, bipolar), anxiety (e.g., panic attacks, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorders), stress-related problems (e.g., sleeplessness, gastrointestinal, pains and other psychosomatic complaints), relationship and family problems.
I integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with CBT, and each session is tailor-made for every client. Clients mostly feel relaxed with mindfulness exercises, progressive muscle relaxation and breathing exercises. Family members are often invited to join the sessions. Some male clients have found specific exercises more helpful than pure talking therapy.
I see the goodness in people regardless of age, gender, race, religion or disability. I am fluent in English, Cantonese and good in Mandarin.
"Dr Joy was very respectful and patient with me. She explained my feelings and gave me coping mechanisms. I feel so much happier in everyday life now. Dr Joy helped me deal with my accident but also with day-to-day living."
