22 Sep CHOOSING THE BEST ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING SERVICE IN HONG KONG
Online therapy, remote counselling and addiction treatment online are some of the phrases you may enter into a google search when looking online for alcohol or drug counselling services in Hong Kong.
Whether you are looking for an alcohol counsellor in Mid Levels, an addictions therapist in Soho, drugs counsellor in Central HK, one to one therapy in Wan Chai or perhaps help with drug addiction or alcohol problem for family member working or even living outside of Hong Kong then finding out more about addiction and what resources are available is the first step.
Before going any further let’s address some of the most common questions and answers when looking for the best online addiction counselling service in Hong Kong.
WHAT IS AND HOW DOES ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING WORK?
In the digital age and modern lifestyle, online addiction counselling in Hong Kong is growing in popularity. Some online counselling platforms use SMS or email as their means of helping and speaking with clients. However, in our experience, these means of communication although useful for interim
questions and answers for communicating between sessions should not form the basis for the main method of communication.
The major component of counselling particularly when dealing with addiction is talking therapy. We are strong believer in face to face counselling and have incorporated this into our practice by offer video calls via various platforms including Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, BOTIM and Google Hangouts WHAT MAKES A GOOD ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLOR?
When looking for a good or recommended highly experienced addiction counsellor in Hong Kong particularly online there are certain qualities within any counselling services that offer the best quality addiction treatment and aftercare. Areas of Hong Kong such as Central, Mid Levels, Wan Chai and Soho have various resources for help with drug or alcohol problem, however, these may be limited and time restricted to office hours only.
We many years’ experience we believe How to Treat Addiction is the best online counselling service in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali and London where we are actively promoting our services to clients.
WHAT DETERMINES THE BEST ONLINE ADDICTION COUNSELLING SERVICE?
The word best implies the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality. Although online addiction counsellors working with clients living or working Hong Kong are highly experienced, knowledgeable, skilled and empathetic we have an ethos that we do not take responsibility for our clients; successes, in the same way, we do not take responsibility for those who relapse and returning to addiction and the associated with old destructive behaviours. When it comes to long lasting results and permanent change it is the client’s own motivation, willingness and determination that is the driving force. Our role to observe, guide, make suggestions, be empathetic and offer a high degree of encouragement but we cannot do the work for our clients.
HOW TO GAIN MAXIMUM BENEFIT FROM ONLINE COUNSELLING IN HONG KONG?
When accessing online addiction counselling services in Hong Kong we recommend the following
Strong private internet connection in quiet and private area with no distractions
Be alert, focused, sober and not under influence of drugs
Be on time, turn off all electronic devices or notifications
Log in to selected video platform 10 to 15 minutes prior to starting session

WHAT TYPES OF COUNSELLING ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE IN HONG KONG?
How to Treat Addiction are specialists in addiction counselling, post-rehab aftercare, relapse prevention and recovery planning. The most common approaches to modern counselling include: CBT (Cognitive
behavioural therapy) Mindfulness, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Family therapy.
The most common types of addiction in Hong Kong, where online counselling can be of great benefit, are alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, gaming, internet and porn addiction. Other core areas which can be both directly and indirectly related to addiction or substance abuse problems include anxiety, bereavement, anger, relationships, negative character traits, self-harm,
depression, trauma and PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
Some of these core areas particularly trauma and PTSD can often be more complex and need to be treated by a Psychologist or Psychiatrist, therefore, session fees will invariably more expensive.
