Astrologer Belinda's Bio
Belinda has become a professional astrologer because astrology has, put it simply, changed her life.
She completed her secondary education at Diocesan Girls' School and used to be interested in the Sun sign columns in newspapers and magazines as a child. After obtaining her first degree in Psychology (1st Class Honours) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, she became a civil servant. At that time thinking job security was the most important thing in life, Belinda joined the government's Information Services Department and served as a press officer for well over a decade.
While working full-time, Belinda also obtained a master's degree in New Media from the Chinese University and another masters in Public Administration (with Distinction) from the University of Hong Kong.
Despite job security and the career opportunities, she still felt something important was missing, but could not quite say what. The turning point came when she started studying serious astrology. The insights from the discipline were so revelatory that her outlook on life was totally transformed, so much so that eventually, she quit her stable government job to pursue a career in Western counselling astrology to help others lead a more fulfilling life.
Aiming to integrate psychotherapy techniques into her astrological work with clients, Belinda is particularly interested in practising Ericksonian hypnotherapy and Existential psychotherapy. She also holds a master’s degree in Counselling from the University of Hong Kong and took her professional astrological studies with the Faculty of Astrological Studies, London.
Belinda enjoys writing. In addition to writing for her various blogs, she has also published astrology articles in both Chinese and English on a number of platforms, including the Bastille Post, VJ Media, The Faculty of Astrological Studies, London, Medium and U Blog. She has recently published an ebook in Chinese, helping readers to learn more about their potential from their birth charts.
She has named the company "Astro Pastures" because she understands when people are at cross-roads or having a hard time, they need a time and space to re-discover or re-assess their own needs and strengths, helped along by tips from someone supportive, so that people can find the inner strength to walk on a life path that truly belongs to them.
