I am a Registered Psychotherapist and I work with adults over the age of 18. I offer individual therapy in a safe therapeutic space where individuals can explore and understand themselves better. Therapy is a pathway that can help individuals to become more in tune with their authentic selves and strengthen their relationships with others. Psychotherapy aims to add depth to life and relational experiences by assisting individuals to understand what is causing them mental distress. Through greater self-awareness and exploration, individuals are likely to experience an increase in emotional, professional, and relational growth.

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.
