Nikki has a Masters in Counselling and has graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University, UK, with PGD in Practice Based Play Therapy. She is a full (accredited) member of Play & Creative Arts Therapists (UK), Play Therapy International (PTI) & Play Therapy Hong Kong (PTHK).

Nikki offers Counselling and individual Play Therapy, which uses a psychotherapeutic approach primarily used to help children and adolescence between 3 to 16 years to resolve any emotional and behavioural issues. Nikki understands parenting challenges, so she works closely with families giving them coping strategies and tangible tools to manage behaviour at home.
Nikki specialises in child therapy and she is a member of the Hong Kong Family Law Association. She has a particular interest in working with children going through the changes and difficulties that come from experiencing divorce or separation. She helps children process and explore thoughts, feelings and experiences about their parents’ divorce / separation. She provides a safe environment, where relationships are fostered and children are acknowledged, validated and heard. She also supports parents’ during this emotional process.
She has been living and working with children in Hong Kong since 2005, and believes that individual therapy has a great deal of benefit, but that when working closely with families and equipping them with the correct strategies, tools and techniques to use at home can have a positive ripple effect within the family. Nikki spends a lot of time ensuring that families feel supported outside of therapy by helping them feel more equipped to manage stress, emotions and behaviour at home.
She understands that life throws challenges at us, which can be hard to manage if we do not have the necessary guidance, knowledge and tools to do so. She understands that we cannot control the external things around us, but what we can do is make a choice to focus on what we can control, which helps us to lead a more positive and healthy life.
