About Me

My name is Dr. Hoyin Chan and I have worked in mental health services in the NHS in the UK since 2002, supporting people presenting with a range of psychological difficulties. Once trained as a social worker, and I had worked in frontline mental health services for many years. My experiences of supporting people in difficult situations at the time sparked my passion in working therapeutically with my clients, especially those with chronic and/or life-changing health conditions. This has led to me pursuing a career in clinical psychology.

Currently, I am a Principal Clinical Psychologist in the NHS and I am registered with the Health and Professional Care Council (HCPC). I am trained in several therapeutic modalities:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT)

This diverse range of approaches allows me to tailor treatment plans to help you address your psychological needs, ranging from unmanageable stress to difficult childhood trauma, to being stuck in patterns of unsuccessful or broken relationships, in addition to depression and anxiety.

Over the years, I have worked in various clinical health services, including burns and plastics, respiratory, cancer and HIV services. I am passionate in working with people presenting with:

  • Life-changing physical health conditions

  • Physical health care-related psychological trauma (e.g. difficult surgeries and/or treatments)

  • Difficulties caring for family members who are experiencing ongoing health problems.

I primarily offer online therapy, supervision and consultation. However, I can offer limited face-to-face sessions in South Manchester.

I only work with adults and older adults. I am fluent in both English and Cantonese. I am registered with insurance companies, including BUPA, WPA, Vitality, Aviva, and Cigna and Evernorth. Please send me a message to discuss how I can support you.

Therapy Principles

I believe in providing a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their thoughts and emotions. Each individual is unique, and I tailor my approach to meet their specific needs.

Collaborative Partnership

Evidence-Based Practice

Client-Centered Approach

I use evidence-based therapeutic modalities to ensure the most effective treatment for my clients. Being treated in different psychological models means that I am able to integrate a range of therapy approaches to meet your needs.

I view therapy as a collaborative process between the client and myself. Together, we work towards identifying goals, developing strategies, and fostering personal growth. I believe in empowering clients to take an active role in their own therapy journey.
