Dr. Vinci Cheung 張穎思
As a registered psychologist and professional trainer offering psychotherapy for children and adults on play therapy, sandplay therapy and social-emotional learning, I have 20 years of experience in mental health, psychology & neuroscience.
Since 2006, I worked on the depth of the psyche not just from a neuroscientific perspective but also the unconscious symbolism of Jungian psychology. Creativity, growth, and healing of the mind take a union of rationality and emotionality hidden in the different layers of our consciousness. In my therapeutic work, arts media and dream analysis are used to help clients uncover their hidden needs which seek to be fed. Throughout different stages of therapy, I would be with client to walk through and intermingle with their conscious rationality and unconscious emotionality.
I was an Associate Professor in Counselling in the Psychology department of Hong Kong Shue Yan University and Assistant Professor on neuropsychology, mental health, play therapy, expressive art therapy and counselling in the Rehabilitation Sciences department of Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I had been Honorary Assistant Professor of the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Hong Kong for 12 years involving in psychological research and promoting psychiatric health in local community.
