Any of these experiences familiar?

Nothing You Do Is Right

You feel constantly at fault in the relationship

Regularly Criticized

Especially when you don’t comply with expectations

Constant Drama

The relationship creates on-going anxiety and unpredictability

You Walk on Eggshells

You never know what will set the other person off

You're the Scapegoat

For things that go wrong in the other person’s life

Negative Self Talk

Because of the constant criticism, you’ve internalized negative self-talk

If you have finally had enough of living this way and are ready to take action, let’s talk!


Daniel’s direct, no BS style, immediately cut through to the core of what was creating problems in my relationship and helped me figure out what to do about it.
‘I came to Daniel feeling like a mess, not knowing how to cope with what life has presented. After working with him I feel so much in peace and harmony. I have learned to live in the present and stop modeling future problems. I have gained such valuable insights into my feelings and attitudes and got equipped to experience life more positively.’
– OH, full-time Mother

‘With Daniel’s insight , I have been able to unpack my life-long difficult relationship with my mom. I am no longer so afraid of her..or anyone, and now I know how to set clear healthy boundaries’ in all my important relationships. I also learned how to come from a place of fear rather than guilt in decision making’

– Jo K, Lawyer
‘Thank you Daniel! He helped me to find the courage to end a very difficult relationship and focus on my own well-being, something i didn’t even know was possible’
– Maggie C, International school teacher

As A Hong Kong And Online Psychotherapist, I Can Help You With…

Repairing from chronic and repeated  personal conflicts.

Recovering & counselling from a  breakup or divorce.

Developing emotional intelligence. 

Developing a vision, model and practices for a successful intimate relationship.

Daniel is capable of turning even the biggest skeptic around with his empathetic, engaging style. But it is his ability to read people, and master the skill of pushing boundaries without ever making you feel uncomfortable, that truly sets him apart. He taught my partner and I how to connect more deeply, overcoming hurdles that once seemed daunting. Thanks to him, we learned to be self-aware and mindful of each others needs which has been infinitely rewarding.
Daniel is one of the most authentic men I’ve had the honor to meet. He wastes no time and cuts straight to the chase. Under his skillful guidance I became more aware of the obstacles that affect my well-being as well as the well-being of those around me.

How I Work

My approach is driven by scientific research that shows that secure-functioning, healthy relationships enhance our personal well-being. We’ll trace and unpack the root causes of your outdated, emotional habits and knee-jerk reactions to stress so they can be unraveled, unlearned and replaced with effective & skilful replacements based on wisdom, compassion and understanding.

We are all programmed to experience relationships in a particular way based on our early primary relationships: how we were related to and what was modelled to us as children. These emotional habits are hardwired into our brains and nervous systems without us realising. They dramatically impact how we relate as adults. They include a whole set of beliefs about ourselves and the world, though we are generally unaware of their influence and the extent that these beliefs are running our lives.

I’ll equip you to increase your emotional intelligence and develop insight and compassion about who you are and how you have been living. Under the surface, emotions drive many of our decisions. Most of us have little comprehension of the emotional dynamics driving the decisions we make and reactions we have to stress. I help people to develop a deep knowledge and comprehension of the emotional habits that lie behind our habitual decision making.

As soon as we experience stress, we are not run by our conscious mind any more, we are run by a more basic programme – older automatic emotional habits that were intelligent responses in early life. You will develop greater freedom to respond rather than react. You will have greater freedom to choose how to respond to stressful moments and more skilfully navigate difficult relationships.

I currently counsel men and women who work at these companies




I’ve been a psychological health professional since 2002. I spend several hundred hours each year doing extensive training in the latest therapeutic and coaching modalities, in order to keep up with the cutting edge healing methods.


My expertise weaves the combination of years of mindfulness training and buddhist psychology training with advanced studies of cutting edge developmental neuroscience and attachment theory including Psychobiological approach to Couple Therapy and Emotion focused therapy




However, my own relationships are the real wellspring of my knowledge and wisdom. My experience as a committed husband, father, son and friend most heavily inform how I help others.

Daniel is a skilled therapist and spiritual warrior. He is ballsy and gentle; heartfelt and edgy; strong and playful. He has been a keen witness to my process, artfully creating space where I feel safe and can take risks. I feel both supported and challenged in his presence. Daniel is simply a living invitation to journey in the heart.
I have found Daniel to possess a truly unique ability to cut through to the real core of an issue and offer genuinely useful, insightful perspective. He’s extremely attuned, sensitive and nurturing but at the same time knows when to challenge me, to provoke thought. I have learnt so much, and developed more than I ever expected, and live a fuller, more genuine life. Eye-opening is an understatement for my experience…and I plan on continuing it
