Beatrice Ng-Kessler is a registered clinical psychologist with experience in diverse settings including public hospitals and non-governmental organizations. She has worked extensively with clients having depression, anxiety issues, relationship problems, childhood trauma and complicated grief.
She is very much interested in the use of mindfulness to support well-being. She personally experience changes after practicing Mindfulness. Mindfulness also led her to learn pain meditation which in turn helped her delivering her baby without any medication and screaming (no, no sound was made at all). As a mother of two, she enjoyed the benefits from her daily Mindfulness practice as a parent as well.
Beatrice had completed a series of teacher's training and participated in a number of meditation retreats, as well as worked with the Chinese University of Hong Kong to research the application of mindfulness for complicated grief. She ran workshops on mental health topics, and currently teaching Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to helping professionals and the public in Hong Kong. She have taught over 20 workshops on Mindfulness to teachers, social workers, doctors, NGOs and in corporation like Airport Authority Hong Kong.
Beatrice was driven by passion in my role as a helping professional. Even while witnessing immense emotional and physical suffering, as well as death, she developed a strong faith in each individual's potential for healing and growth.
