Michelle grew up in Hong Kong and completed her secondary school and university in the UK before returning home to gain further clinical experience. Michelle is currently a year 2 trainee clinical psychologist at UCL and has worked with adults with depression and various types of anxiety disorders in her first year of training.
During her master study, Michelle has worked at the Lambeth Early Onset (LEO) in London with early onset psychosis patients and has gained huge interest on psychotic spectrum disorders. She then returned to her hometown, where she worked with a team of psychiatrists to investigate predictors of early treatment outcome of first episode psychosis. Michelle also facilitated a mindfulness intervention study to explore the effectiveness of mindfulness on clients with psychosis in Hong Kong.
Prior to her clinical psychology training, Michelle was working with several stakeholders, including social workers, teachers, psychiatrist, clinical psychologists, and academia on suicide prevention. She focused on facilitating a mental health enhancement programme for primary school students and teachers. She was also involved with teaching and tutoring at the University of Hong Kong on a suicide prevention course.
Michelle speaks English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and can be seen by appointment at our Central clinic.
