Experience

After attaining her BSc Psychology, Sonia graduated with Distinction in Master of Social Sciences (Marriage and Family Therapy) at the University of Hong Kong in 2011. Her work since then has focused on the central importance of relationships and secure attachment to the health and well-being of individuals and couples.

Sonia focuses on supporting partners to identify unhelpful interpersonal patterns of interaction, guiding them to free themselves from counterproductive behaviours, thereby restoring and repairing connection.

She has an integrative, experiential approach, drawing on her training in Emotionally Focused Individual and Couple Therapy (an evidence-based approach to treating relationship distress), as well as mindfulness and brain-based disciplines.
