Ms. Janet Lau is an English-Cantonese bilingual counselor with years of experience working with children, young people and adults, couples and family, psychoeducation as well as corporate training. She is a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology from the California Southern University, and she possesses a Master of Social Science (Counselling) from the University of Hong Kong and a Master in Counseling from Monash University in Australia.

Janet has years of counselling experience in stress management, emotional management, interpersonal communication, parenting management, marriage and family counseling, business and workplace training, and providing psychological assessment services. She is also a registered clinical hypnotherapist, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner, corporate coach as well as "Happy Parenting Program" practitioner. She is skillful in applying hypnotherapy on individual, couples, and family issues. By inducing client naturally into a hypnotic trance, client can acquire a different perspective to the problem. Through accepting the negative emotions and reframing his / her mode of thinking, the client can eventually unlock his / her inner resources and empower the self.

As a child and adolescent psychotherapist, Janet is also proficient at art and play therapy to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for children and adolescents who are unable to express their emotions and needs effectively. Through art facilitation and plays, young people can freely express their inner feelings so that they are contained and supported. This would eventually contribute to personal growth. In addition, through the parental management training and stress management training, the parents can manage the parent-child relationship better which can facilitate the family dynamics as well as the development of the children.
