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 and depression.

I work online via video with Skype, WhatsApp and Messenger. I am based in Malaysia and have clients here as well as in Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Australia.

If we haven't already talked, what you should know right up front is this: I'm Scottish-Dutch, I live in West Malaysia, and I like to keep busy.
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, and that I can help.

If we agree it's a go, we set up a proper appointment.

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.  

I charge RM100 or US$30 or £25. You pay me via PayPal or bank transfer after your session. Yes, you pay after. If you're unhappy, you don't pay.

If you have an issue that will take multiple sessions, you get a therapy plan so you can track how you're doing and estimate cost.

I am LGBT friendly. 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.
I specialise in stress and depression which means I also deal with everyday issues such as relationship issues, work trouble, divorce, anxiety, loneliness and so on. However, mental health is a huge field and there are limits to the kind of work I can do. If you are looking for specialist help that I'm not able to provide, I'll tell you straight away. And you're unable to find someone proper, I'll do my best to help you find the right people, okay?
