Counselling

I provide individual and group counselling to adult individuals of all cultures and ethnicities.

I hold a Masters in Counselling from Monash University, Australia. My additional training includes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and Matrix Reimprinting. I work using an integrative and holistic approach, combining mindfulness based therapies with techniques that build awareness of the mind-body-social causes of problematic issues.

These techniques, coupled with talk therapy, enhance the therapeutic process so you are able to feel immediate positive shifts in your daily life.

My approach is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment so you can voice your concerns and difficulties while feeling heard. I am fully invested in helping you to connect to your inner resources so you can cope with and resolve the issues you are experiencing.

We will work together to explore and identify any limiting issues with the clear intent of achieving goals. I believe that everyone’s issues are unique, and the sessions will be tailored to your specific needs.

I offer long or short term counselling, and specialise in personal crisis, trauma and confidence. I work with a wide range of issues including stress, depression, anger, self-esteem, sexuality, job related stress, phobias, grief or loss, old or recent trauma, unresolved childhood issues and any emotional blocks to self-awareness and personal development.

A member of The Hong Kong Professional Counselling Association (HKPCA) and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), I adhere to their code of ethics.

Trauma

Trauma

According to the American Psychological Association:
Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.

Having worked with clients from all walks of life who have suffered some form of trauma (including refugees from Africa, the headmistress of a school and a businessman, among others), it is apparent that it is an individual’s subjective experience that determines whether an event is or is not traumatic.

TraumaJon Allen, psychologist and author of Coping with Trauma: A Guide to Self-Understanding says that “Psychologically, the bottom line of trauma is overwhelming emotion and a feeling of utter helplessness. There may or may not be bodily injury, but psychological trauma is coupled with physiological upheaval that plays a leading role in the long-range effects”.

Basically, trauma is determined by the experiences and resilience of the survivor. Different people could experience the same event where one undergoes severe trauma and another remains psychologically uninjured. Therefore it is not the event that defines the trauma but the emotional and psychological make up of the individual.

Additionally, specific aspects of a situation or event will affect each person differently. Which is why addressing individual root causes of trauma will result in more long-term healing effects.

While it may be apparent what it feels like to live with the consequences of past trauma on a daily basis, we don’t usually have the information we need to understand what exactly transpired in our minds and bodies at the time of the trauma. We suffer mental, emotional and physical symptoms as a direct consequence of how the trauma changed the development of our body-mind.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) coupled with counselling has proved effective in providing true emotional freedom from all types of trauma; accidents, injury, childhood trauma, abuse, PTSD, rape, sudden loss or bereavement.

“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives”

Are you living your best life? If not, what's stopping you?

Sometimes you just need to talk, even if you don’t know where to start or what the problem is. My approach is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment, so you can voice your concerns while feeling heard.

My practice as a counsellor focuses on a mind-body-social approach to therapy. I combine EFT tapping and somatic therapies with traditional talk therapy to assist you in resolving your difficulties.

Offering an integrative approach allows me to be flexible, tailoring sessions to individual needs. Research has shown that we have two distinct levels of awareness, embodied (physical body) and conceptual (mental structure, e.g., thoughts). I listen to both, the the narrative as well as the stress held in the body, and work together with you to come to the best possible outcome for you in the present.

I can help you work through parenting stress, anger, confidence, low moods, low self-esteem, workplace stress, phobias, grief, loss, trauma, unresolved childhood issues and any other emotional blocks which may be keeping you stuck.

Falguni Mather, Counselling, EFT, Hong Kong

Private Sessions :

Wherever you are at right now, I believe in you. I am fully invested in doing my part to get you to connect to, and use, your inner resources, so you can move from a place of discomfort to one of positive transformation.

Workshops:

Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, resulting in new solutions. Furthermore, working in groups can ease a sense of isolation as it can build connection with the other members. The same as individual sessions, group sessions and workshops are also confidential. Consider attending my monthly EFT tapping circle or organising a group for people experiencing similar issues. This is also a cost effective way of accessing support.

META-Health: Decoding Symptoms:

Ultimately our stresses and limitations are held not only in our mental narratives but also in our physical bodies. META-Health aims to uncover root causes of physical symptoms. We work together to find any unconscious triggers (including thoughts and behaviours) which may be keeping your symptoms chronic, releasing these triggers so you can reclaim optimal well being.
