Founded in 2012, the Hong Kong Institute for Counselling Professionals has the aim of promoting professional psychology and counselling training to practitioners in the fields of social work, education and psychiatric health working in Hong Kong as well as other parts of Asia. We endeavour to provide tools through our training courses for professionals to help people in need by providing high quality psychotherapeutic services.

Our long term vision is to create a community of professional counsellors and psychiatrists in Hong Kong, Mainland China and other parts of Asia to enable the sharing of professional experience and communication between practitioners to improve the quality of psychotherapeutic services throughout Asia and help in researches on various methods of therapy. To reach this goal, we aim to host international conferences in Asia and invite world renowned psychotherapists, psychologists, and professional coaches to Hong Kong to teach in professional certificate courses and workshops to raise awareness of the Asian community to the importance of a healthy mind and to widen the knowledge of practitioners in Hong Kong and Asia. Through this community of counsellors, we also hope to create teams of professional psychiatrists who would visit the victims of natural and human disasters to help the rebuilding of communities in Asia.

We are looking to cooperate with more universities and institutions to deliver a wider and more diverse range of courses involving many different methods of psychotherapy to make professional practitioners more versatile and to provide them with more effective tools to help them provide high quality psychotherapy services.
