The SPOT Clinical Psychology team approaches every therapy session and assessment with each clients' strengths and needs in mind. We strive to make a positive difference in families and individuals lives and to help them overcome roadblocks and challenges that have surfaced. We take a solutions oriented approach and seek to help clients achieve tangible goals and positive life changes. 

Our team is handpicked for your personal needs and situation. Should you have any inquiries about a specific approach or therapist, please feel free to call our front desk to discuss options. In order to serve the families of Hong Kong, our team speaks English, Mandarin and Cantonese and is made up of Native Hong Kongers, Expatriates, males and females. 

For children and toddlers, we believe that parents are the experts when it comes to their child and that our role is to support them and work as a team with caregivers, teachers, and parents in order to understand and bring out the best in each individual. 

For adolescents, we aim to empower young adults and appreciate their journey into autanomy and self-acceptance. We help them find more fruitful coping skills, learn how to express their ideas and feelings in productive ways and gain a since of who they are and what they have to offer the world.

For individual and couples therapy, we aim to guide you to achieving your goals by understanding your history as well as past patterns and thoughts that have impeded your success.  We then provide scaffolding and a plan to help you move forward in life successful and fulfilled.

"When we first came to see Zara, our son M was not verbal. He was not regulated because he was unable to communicate his needs and wants to us. The first few sessions that we had with Zara was more of getting the trust of our son to play with her and be more comfortable with her. Each session with her was not just about helping our son to communciation to us at home. We were able to practice and extend that therapy sessions from Zara's office to our home because of the ideas and knowledge she has shared with us. After a few months of sessions with Zara, our son M can now verbally communicate his needs and wants to us and has expanded his vocabulary. Because of the trust and patience that Zara has shown to our son, our son is always looking forward to his sessions with her. We are happy with the progress of our son from being non verbal to a child who can now talk to us, read aloud and sing his nursery fhymes. Thank you Zara!"
