About Ellen Whyte, Counselling Psychologist

This is me, with my cat, Au
Hello! My name is Ellen Whyte. I'm a counselling psychologist, specialising in teaching techniques to manage stress, depression and anxiety.

As it's a big field, I deal with everyday issues such as relationship difficulties, work trouble, divorce, fear of socialising, loneliness, relocation stress, and so on. 

I work online via video with Skype, WhatsApp and Messenger. I'm Scottish-Dutch, based in Malaysia and have clients here as well as in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Australia, Saudi, India and half a dozen other countries.
 
If you need to talk to me, please contact me via email at happy@lepak.com, telling me very briefly about your therapy issue and what time zone you are in.

We set up a short chat, and talk over video, either via Skype, WhatsApp or Messenger.  The first 20 minutes are free. This is because I want to make sure I know what you're looking for, that we can communicate easily, and that we can work together.

If we agree it's a go, we set up an appointment for a session.

Unlike most mental health professionals, I charge by the session and not by the minute. I do this because I think it's vital for getting good results. If you have to stop because your hour is up, or you are worried about having to pay extra if you talk too much, then we may miss something. However, typical sessions last 60 minutes.  

I charge RM100 if you pay into my local bank or US$35 if you pay over PayPal. You pay me after your session.

I am LGBT-affirming. I am also an atheist. Normally that doesn't come up in conversation but if you're looking to talk through questions of infidelity, divorce, abortion and other life issues without a religious perspective, you may find that information useful. 
       
I have an Honours Degree Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Stirling University, Scotland and a Masters in Counselling from Open University Malaysia. I'm associate member number 194/16 of the Malaysian Psychological Association and a full member of the Malaysia Mental Health Organisation.
        
Do note that mental health is a huge field and there are limits to the kind of work I can do. If you are looking for help that I'm not able to provide, I'll tell you straight away. And if you're unable to find someone proper, I'll do my best to help you find the right people, okay?

Please feel free to drop me a note at happy@lepak.com — I look forward to helping you!
