Po Yiu (Andrew) Chan, MA Counselling & Psychotherapy, MBACP
68 Lombard Street
Hi everyone, I am a qualified counsellor & psychotherapist and a registered member of BACP for counselling and psychotherapy. I have been practicing as a counsellor for nearly 4 years and engaged with other relevant clinical works for another 4 years. The type of counselling I provide is mainly successful leadership training plus relationship counselling which covers 4 main areas:
- Parent-Child Interaction;
- Teacher-Student Interaction;
- Husband-Wife/ Partner-Partner Interaction.
- Work Colleagues Interaction.
The topics I normally discuss with my clients include:
- Parent-Child conflicts/ Lack of Communication;
- Anxiety and Depression/ feel lonely in relationships;
- Trust issues in relationships;
- Fear of abandonment/ isolation in relationships;
- Low self-worth in relationships;
- Shame of expressing yourself in relationships
Would you like to know more about why you feel in a certain way in relationships? Do you need help to get yourself back on track in relationships?
ABOUT MY SERVICE
My therapeutic approach is mainly helping people to feel settled, positive, and confident in relationships. People who are struggling with all above issues will benefit from my service. In my service, I will help people to explore all the negative, destructive beliefs of how they see themselves in relationships and the reasons of why they struggle in current relationships. The possible outcomes of counselling are that people will develop a different view of themselves such as:
- 'I am now being confident of expressing myself',
- 'I am not afraid of being rejected by others',
- 'I am more capable of handling the relationships',
- 'I am no longer lonely even surrounded by people',
- 'I can be a successful leader in my area of interest.'
People will also be armed with strategies of how to manage the changing dynamics of a relationship so that they know how to proceed at different stages.

Feel free to call, email me, or book online on my webpage to arrange an initial meeting. An initial meeting will be a good time for us to get to know each other and what is the best time for subsequent sessions. The initial assessment is free. During the initial assessment, you will be given some questions about your current concerns, your expectations, and any support system you have.
I would normally have a quick review with each client every six sessions as an ongoing process for us to make sure our conversations are on the right track. If your expectations are not met or if your concerns are not fully resolved, please feel free to give me any feedback and I am happy to adjust the course of our conversation and make sure you are satisfied with both the process and outcome.
All clients are free to finish at any time they want. It has proven to be beneficial to give informed notice before the end of the therapy relationship.
