In these challenging times, we need all the help we can get. If you’re looking for professional support, take a closer look at the psychologists, counsellors and therapists for marriage counselling, couples therapy in Hong Kong. As well as family counsellors, child psychologists and additional resources for parents.

Feeling anxious, stressed and worried? Wondering why you and your partner get into the same quarrels every week, or how to be more patient with your family? You’re not alone.

As the COVID-19 crisis enters its third year, we are all experiencing heightened levels of anxiety, uncertainty and stress. Being there for our loved ones can be difficult on any day – let alone during a global pandemic when many are working from home and schools are shut down. Many families are thus spending more time together in the same (often small) apartment. It’s okay to feel frustrated in times like these. It does not mean that you’re a bad parent or an ungrateful spouse. These are simply difficult times, and we’re all trying our best, and it doesn’t hurt to reach out to a professional psychologist or counsellor to help.

Like shoes, you have to find the right therapist that fits you. While there are many great therapists in the city, browse through this list of Hong Kong-based family therapists who offer counselling in-person and online (or e-therapy) using video calls. We’ve also included a few counselling centres that specialise in parenting, families, marriage and child development.
