Counselling provides a safe space for narrative and active listening and developing practical steps in self-help, through deepening insight into the subconscious and unconscious levels of our patterns and habits. Stress is a factor in most medical conditions, in chronic diseases and in chronic pain and chronic fatigue. Counselling is important for stress management, anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, relational issues and work-related issues.
Focus Psychological Strategies (FPS), are applied in healing mental and emotional pain, such as guilt. Simple meditative practices in mindfulness and heartfulness are utilised to enhanced self-worthiness, confidence, self-inspiration and self-mastery.

Acupuncture is a simple method that follows the laws of science and biophysics. It is used to give relief from stress, discomfort and pain in the body-mind. A healthy body functions as flow of homeostasis, such as the flow of blood, lymphatics and energy through the organs, nervous system and at the cellular level. Dis-ease occurs when there is a traffic-jam in this natural flow in our psycho-biophysics. Acupuncture is using needles like a conductor for flow and a release of traffic-jam. Dr Chan practices Chinese, Japanese and empirical acupuncture.
