Rachel Ng

Rachel Ng

Individual, Marriage and Family Therapist / Founder

Ms Rachel Ng is the founder of Family Dynamics. She had been well aware of the impact of family relationships on the development of teenage students since her teaching in secondary schools for more than ten years. This apprehension grew even stronger when it had come to her own experience in raising her two gifted children, struggling between diverse family values and cultures from different families of origins. With growing interest and dedication to family work, Rachel graduated from the master program of Marriage and Family Therapy with distinction at Hong Kong University. She has been grateful that she could witness distressed couples and family members to rebuild trust and compassion, which has given her stronger conviction that professional and early intervention is crucial. Besides clinical practice, Rachel is also committed to provide the community at large with talks and workshops to promote family value and individual well being through systemic perspective; and helping professionals and church leaders with training in family systemic theories and intervention skills.
