潘太曾任職香港公教婚姻輔導會,從事個人情緒輔導、婚姻輔導、婚前輔導、夫婦離異輔導、夫婦復和輔導、分居/離婚調解、婚姻培育二十多年。其間,她曾創辦婦女服務,致力運用治療小組及遊戲治療服務單親婦女及兒童。多年來她建基於人本治療取向,力求與受助人建立一種真摯、誠懇的合作關係,透過深層的同理心,讓受助者安全地接觸内心深處,從而達至治療效果。

 

自2004年,她跟隨加拿大約克大學之葛林堡教授學習情緒導向治療,並分別於2010年及2016年獲取情緒導向輔導員及情緒導向治療訓練導師的資格;由2007年至2017年她協助由香港公教婚姻輔導會舉辦之情緒導向治療一年制証書課程,擔任督導小組之導師。情緒導向治療是一種歷程體驗治療,以情緒作爲指引,並獲超過三十年的實證支持具果效的治療方法。

 

潘太於2014年開始任職私人執業輔導員,專長於處理個人情緒失調、抑鬱、焦慮、童年創傷及情侶關係困難(包括未婚、已婚及同性伴侶)。基於她的佛學研究背景,她更引入正念内觀(mindfulness)於治療過程中,運用與受助者的共同察覺,加速治療果效。

 

除臨床實務工作外,潘太亦有參與大學及業界的培訓工作,並於2015年開始成為香港大學社會工作及社會行政學系之榮譽講師,教授情緒導向治療法及婚姻輔導課程。

作為一位輔導者,這是我所嚮往的特質:

慈悲-感恩-信賴-謙卑-體恤-尊重-發人深省-創新-優雅
