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.
Mark’s addiction counselling expertise draws on 15 years’ experience with 12-step recovery approaches. 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.
Originally from the UK, Mark is a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered counsellor with over 20 years’ residency in Hong Kong. He holds a Master of Counselling degree from Monash University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Music Therapy from Melbourne Conservatory of Music, in addition to a BA in Sociology and Theology from Nottingham and an MSc in Development Studies from SOAS University of London.
Mark has enjoyed a varied career which brings a depth and breadth to his counselling work. He is a qualified instrumental music teacher with experience at international schools in Hong Kong and has previously worked in international development as a social development consultant on major projects across Asia, Africa and Europe.
