About Psychologist Dr Tiffany Leung
I am a UK HCPC accredited counseling psychologist, life coach and University approved clinical supervisor. I am also an honorary lecturer in the University of Manchester, teaching Intercultural Public health in the last 5 years. I have had over 10 years of counseling/therapy experiences in the UK and Hong Kong.
I received all my psychology and counseling qualifications in the UK.
Where are you from :
I was born in Hong Kong China, a melting pot of the East & West. I love traveling and connecting with people from all walks of life. After passing my psychologist doctoral training in University of Manchester, I continue to explore meanings of diversity and equality in this city (and across the globe). I highly value my bicultural experiences and ensure my work is delivered with cultural sensitivity.
What are your work experiences?
Different client groups: individuals and groups, classroom training and workshops, individual and peer supervision; consultancy for teams and organizations.
Range of settings: local mental health and healthcare organisations, University and college settings, acute mental health and specialized psychiatric placements.
Covering areas (not exclusively): depression and anxiety, trauma and abuse, long-term mental health, terminal illness, carers support, family, cross-generational, couple relationships, adjusting to a new culture(s), identity search and social relationships, personality traits (and disorder diagnosis), work based mental health, bullying and discrimination, learning disability (support plan, education and behavioral training), financial education and wellbeing.
Example clients: teenagers, adolescents, adults, couples, families and older individuals; healthcare professionals/doctors/nurses, students and training professionals, ethnic minority/bicultural individuals, international students and migrants.
I am also a senior psychologist in the NHS sector, specializing in forensic secure mental health - a group of service users who present with complexities in mental health and life challenges.
Recently I have joined a GP service in Manchester offering accessible mental health support - an exciting time! (News will be further shared on the website)
Any other interests?
In the last 5 years, I have developed a number of creative projects on mainstreaming mental health/wellbeing among Chinese and Asian populations in the UK. I am passionate about mental health and holistic wellbeing by being together and staying connected as a community.
Fun fact: I have started a mission diary on replacing into sustainable products (speaking as an aspiring sustainability supporter!).
Psychological therapy is for those who wish to have professional support on overcoming sufferings and adversities in life, and reversing the cycle of setbacks.
With the support of therapy, you will have positive changes in your daily life functioning, personal and professional relationships, improved communication skills, and reduction in symptoms.
Longer therapy has proven to build and strengthen individuals’ beliefs and values set, and they see they are able to build stronger self-awareness, mindsets and decision making.
