Head Counsellor

Anna Healy Fenton – Head Counsellor

Originally from Ireland, Anna has worked in Hong Kong for more than 20 years. Besides holding a Masters in Counselling from Monash University, Australia, she has trained at the National Centre for Eating Disorders in England and is a Master Practitioner and certified trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming. Anna began her counselling career in London in the early ‘90s and is a specialist in helping people overcome all kinds of addictive and compulsive behaviours, as well as coping with the relationship and work issues which proliferate in a stressful environment such as Hong Kong.

Anna’s goal is to inspire and empower clients to discover and develop their inner strengths. She believes strongly that treatment is only the beginning and aims to help clients with the next step: building new social networks and learning the skills needed to live fulfilling lives in recovery amid the pressures of Hong Kong. Family support in this is vital and through the Cabin Family Programme Anna provides comprehensive backup for family members, helping them to overcome their own co-dependence and relationship issues.

Mark Willet – Addiction Counsellor

Mark Willet is an Addiction Counsellor at The Cabin Hong Kong and joined The Cabin in 2019. His role involves admitting clients into rehabilitation to ensure a smooth transition from active addiction into recovery. Mark also facilitates one-to-one and group counselling sessions where the circumstances and consequences of addiction and co-occurring disorders are openly explored and addressed.

It includes the application of mindfulness and CBT principles in both individual and group settings, working independently and with specialist agencies and Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) providers. He occasionally blends music therapy principles into his counselling work – an approach that can be particularly beneficial when working with younger clients.

Andy Leach

Clinical Lead

Andy Leach – Clinical Lead

Originally from the UK, Andy is Clinical Lead for The Cabin Hong Kong and Singapore Outpatient Centres as well as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Addiction Therapist at The Cabin Group. Since joining the organisation in 2011, he has been responsible for many new initiatives, including launching and overseeing The Cabin Outpatient Centres in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dhaka and Sydney. He has also set up The Cabin Recovery House and created an 18-group relapse prevention programme at The Cabin in Chiang Mai. Besides holding a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice, Andy studied Counselling at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation.

Despite an extensive background in addiction and mental health services, Andy has not always been involved in this line of work. After studying Sociology at Bristol University, he worked for the Observer newspaper and Reed Publishing before starting his own production company. The business was an immediate success, however addictions to drugs and alcohol were taking over his life. Andy went through a period of 14 months in treatment. Afterwards, he returned to education and studied English Literature and Creative Writing, graduating with a first-class honours degree. Following his studies, he joined the Royal Mencap Society as a Support Worker – working with clients with Asperger’s syndrome, Down’s syndrome, and Autism. Although the job was rewarding, he needed a new challenge and headed to Asia in 2011, where he has lived and worked in the addiction field ever since.
