As clients’ companion through times of distress, she uses an integrative approach that draws on psychodynamic perspectives, delivered from an angle of compassion. She speaks English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, and provides online therapy. 

    In sessions, clients will dialogue with Charlotte to explore the inner world such as emotions, unconscious, defences, blockages, and past traumas that are at the roots of current problems. Followed by experiential exercises that are body-based and compassion-focused, clients will be guided to put insights into actions fuelling actual life changes.
