ClinPsych Services

ClinPsych Services (CPS) provides services to clients in innovative and evidence-supported ways. Balancing the use of technology that helps to ease the process of accessing and arranging for services, with the need for sensitive, comprehensive, and localised support is what sets our service apart from others. Based in Hong Kong, we offer services to clients both locally and internationally.  A number of clients utilise both face-to-face therapy and teletherapy interchangeably.

Clinical psychology

Clinical psychology began as a profession in the United States in 1896, when Lightner Witmer opened the first psychological clinic at the University of Pennsylvania, which focused on educational impairments in children. Through the early to mid 20th century, psychological evaluations expanded first into aptitude and occupational testing, and later into assessing personality. When utilised carefully and appropriately, psychological evaluations and therapies can work together very effectively to address challenges faced by individuals and families. CPS offers both assessment and therapy services. Our team has expanded to offer mental healthcare from other qualified professionals, while remaining informed by careful assessment and specialised support.

Our Philosophy

Client ratings of their therapist’s empathy are the single strongest therapist determinant of successful psychotherapy. At CPS, we are committed to collaborating with clients in order to establish deep understanding of a client’s presenting situation. When we develop formulations of problems faced by clients, we are careful to acknowledge the fact that certain behaviours stem from unmet needs that are universal. We also emphasise the present moment, focusing on current problems and distressing situations, and how they are responded to. When determining which interventions are more likely to benefit clients, we focus on specifying maladaptive processes that are contributing to overarching problems.

Flexible Approach

A flexible approach to therapy is of key importance in today’s fast-moving and ever-changing world. At CPS, we offer traditional, face-to-face individual therapy. Additionally, we offer teletherapy – allowing clients who cannot or would prefer not to attend sessions in person the option of receiving services online. We also provide a house-call service, which can be very helpful, especially in circumstances where our clients are finding it difficult to leave their home, e.g. in cases of school refusal or severe social anxiety.

Family therapy is also a key service offered as part of our treatment options. In family therapy, instead of focusing on individual symptoms, we question the certainty about who has a problem and whether or not the problem lays solely within that individual. Family therapists endeavor to move families from linear (“it’s Johnny”) and medical model thinking (“he’s hyperactive”) to an interactional perspective.
