Stephanie Young

Stephanie Young holds a Masters Degree in Counselling Therapy along with Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Secondary Education and Leadership. She has nearly 20 years in education and a growing number as a practitioner in the mental health field.

Through an integrative, evidence-based approach, she believes psychotherapy has the power to restore self-worth, dignity, and confidence. Without judgment, Stephanie aims to encourage the development of self-awareness as a basis for cognitive, behavioural and emotional change.

She can help adolescent and adult clients:
-understand and manage depression and anxiety, specific fears, obsessive-compulsive disorder
-navigate difficult and stressful life events
-learn to thrive in uncertainty and through difficult life transitions
-manage emotions and increase emotional intelligence
-gain self confidence and worth

Her personal areas of interest, although not exclusive, are interpersonal relationships, adolescent challenges, sexuality and identity, and values based decision making.

She is registered with the Hong Kong Professional Counselling Association and adheres to the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association’s Code of Ethics.

Stephanie is a Canadian citizen and long term resident of Hong Kong, mother to two school-aged boys.
