And it doesn’t hurt to seek professional help in troubled times and get support for mental health issues. Here are some organisations and individuals you can reach out to for therapy and counselling services in Hong Kong.

Counselling Hong Kong provides holistic support through counselling, coaching, and therapy. Led by Sebastian Droesler, a registered counsellor and psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), Counselling Hong Kong integrates modern psychology, neuroscience, and psychotherapy to tailor interventions for adult individuals and couples so they can enhance inner strength and achieve visible balance.

Droesler is also a certified mindfulness teacher, trained in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and offers programmes for clients to help with their overall well-being and to prevent relapses into depression and anxiety. In addition, Droesler runs men’s groups where members can engage in honest conversations with committed peers outside their usual circles, with a focus on personal growth at large and self-awareness in particular.
