Kia ora, I am a lecturer at MIT where I teach and supervise up and coming counsellors in the bachelor of counseling program. I am an inquisitive and creative individual who enjoys working with people to unpack problem stories and find new ways to create a more preferred story. I work in Geek and Narrative Therapy, exploring stories of the individual and of the fandom world. I work mainly with adolescents but I am not limited to that. Outside of my practice I enjoy playing video games, writing, drawing, and going on hikes.

If you have been feeling lonely, sad or anxious, we can share a safe space where you can tell me your concerns. The main purpose of therapy is generating deep awareness of one's own personality and behaviour, understand about your inner world (thoughts, emotions, feelings), inquiring how our past affects our present. With this understanding one can move onto learning skills in order to manage emotions and behaviour. The therapeutic approach I use depends on the client's needs and resources available, with a strong foundation on a trauma-informed approach.

Sometimes we all need the space to take time out to reflect on what's going on with us; or to talk to someone outside our immediate family and friends, a trained and experienced professional, who can assist us to think and feel deeper into our life, work and relationships. As we do this we begin to feel more human, more in balance and more able to warm up to our own spontaneity, vitality and creativity in response to what is required- be it coming to some resolutions, developing or strengthening aspects of ourselves, moving forward, or 'leaning into' our lives in a more dynamic or committed way. Therapy assists.

My name is Gorgan Ng and I've been working with teenagers or young adults who identify as part of the geek culture or have an interest in gaming, anime, or superheroes. They may be struggling with issues such as wanting change in life, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, difficulty fitting in, or a sense of isolation. They need a safe and understanding space where they can freely express their interests and experiences without judgment. Their goal is to integrate the skills and insights they have gained from their geeky hobbies into their daily lives, improving their self-confidence, social connections, and overall well-being.

Therapy is a specialized conversation, which is both a science and an art. It creates a deep relational connection and a safe space, where we can heal, grow stronger, or just move forward. We do this by discovering who we are, what we want, and how to get there. I am passionate about meeting people, journeying with them, facilitating change, and watching as they become more at ease within themself, with others, their world, and spirituality.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
