About me

Experience is not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you. (Aldous Huxley)

Betty Ko BSc (Hons), Dip Counselling, MBACP

People seek counselling for different reasons: some clients seek counselling to help with depression, addictions, phobia or other issues. Others might see a counsellor to help them cope with stressful life situations, challenges, isolation, emotional traumas, bereavement or identity issues. Some clients might use counselling as a mean to improve their emotional well-being and stability in life. People who seek counselling come from all walks of life and from different social and ethnic backgrounds.

About the therapist:

I am a BACP member with experience working with individuals and young people for brief or long-term therapy. My approach is mainly psychodynamic which means during the counselling process, the client and I will look at how past experiences influence their current feelings and behaviour. We will also explore repetition behaviours and the way to change them. I might employ creative techniques such as shell work, drawings and clay to access unconscious and enhance self-awareness. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) skills might also apply to facilitate the work if appropriate.

I have specialist training in working with clients who have a gambling addiction. Gambling addiction may be triggered by stressful issues in life. During counselling, I will try to understand why and how the addiction developed and explore what the trigger was. Then we might explore how to change the behaviour by using CBT skills and how to replace gambling behaviour with healthier alternatives.

I have worked in a Chinese mental health organisation and Chinese community centre for two years, I see clients who speak Cantonese, Mandarin or English. Being a Chinese counsellor, I understand Chinese cultural background and norms. I can also work with immigrants who may be challenged by exclusion, regarding identity and adaptation issues.

How I work

Confidential one to one counselling is offered to adults on short or long-termed basis in a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental environment in central Cambridge. Off road parking is available. Appointments are available during weekdays and some evenings. Sessions are tailored towards specific needs, depending on whether you seek counselling to resolve a crisis, change your current stressful life situations or deal with ongoing underlying issues. The length of therapy depends entirely up to you, some people might see a therapist for 6 to 12 sessions, others might see a counsellor for a longer term.

經驗不單是發生在你身上的事情,而是你怎樣處理這些發生在你身上的事情。赫胥黎

高惠珠(榮譽)理學士,心理輔導文憑,MBACP


人們尋求心理輔導的原因不盡相同:一些服務使用者尋求輔導以幫助減輕他們的抑鬱症,恐懼症,癮症或其他問題。其他人前來見輔導員以幫助他們應付緊張的生活壓力,面對目前正面臨的挑戰,疏離,情感創傷,喪親之痛或文他認同問題。有些人可能會使用輔導以改善他們的情感及尋求生活穩定。輔導者來自社會各階層: 來自不同的社會和種族背景的人也可能會尋求心理輔導。

關於輔導員:

我是BACP成員, 本人有對個人和年輕人輔導的工作經驗。我的工作取向主要是心理動力學: 即在輔導過程中我將著眼於過去的經驗如何影響受輔導者的感情和行為。我們也將探討重複行為和如何改變它們。我也會採用貝殼, 繪畫和粘土等技巧以幫助受輔導者增強自我意識及了解自己的潛意識。如適用的話, 本人也可能採用一些認知行為治療(CBT)技巧。

我對賭博輔導頗有經驗。我曾面見一些賭博成癮的人。賭癮的引發原因可能因生活緊張或壓力而引起。在諮詢過程中,我會嘗試了解引發睹癮的原因。然後,我或會使用認知行為治療(CBT)技巧探討如何改變這種行為,以及如何以健康的生活模式取代賭博的行為。

我曾在華人社區中心擔任輔導工作兩年,我的客戶來自香港, 中國及在英土生土長的華人。他們有說廣東話,普通話或英語的。作為一個中國人的輔導員,我理解中國的文化背景和規範。我也可面見同國籍的新移民以探討他們對適應英國社會的疑慮, 文化認知和社會適應的問題。

我如何工作

我會提供一個安全, 舒適,保密和不依個人道德觀作論斷的環境。你會被視獨立個體且受到尊重。輔導過程是一對一的面談輔導。服務使用者可選擇短期或長期性的輔導服務。地點在劍橋市中心CB1。使用者可使用路邊的停車位泊車。輔導時間在平日或某些晚上, 請致電或電郵預約時間。輔導內容會針對個人特定的需要而制定,這取決於您是否尋求心理輔導來解決危機,改變你當前生活壓力的情況或閣下欲處理長期積壓下來的心理問題。治療的長度完全取決於閣下,有些人可能會面見治療師約6至12節,另一些服務使用者可能會選擇較長期的輔導。我的手提電話號碼  07980 976723 電郵:betty.kocounselling@gmail.com
