Dr. Edward Ng

Psychologist / Writer / Speaker

About

Edward En-Heng Ng is a Registered Psychologist in private practice in Vancouver.  Prior to becoming a psychologist, Ed was a high school science teacher for 5 years in Vancouver and Hong Kong, and then, after attending Regent College (MDiv 2008), he pastored in a small congregation for another 4 years. After realizing that his theological studies did not suitably equip him for working with people, he enrolled at Fuller Theological Seminary’s Graduate School of Psychology (Pasadena, CA), from which he graduated with a Doctor of Psychology degree in 2016. During his doctoral studies, Ed was introduced by his academic advisor Al Dueck to the field of cultural psychology, which focuses on how people groups tend to speak of themselves instead of relying on Western psychology to describe them. Ed’s enduring academic interest since then has centered around critical psychology and the applications of cultural psychology and relational psychoanalysis to clinical or counselling contexts.  Ed has taught at Trinity Western University and Regent College in the areas of diversity and counselling. He is also the founder of the Eastgate Project and hosts its podcast, which focuses on the intersections of psychology, theology, and the experiences of the Asian diaspora.  Ed lives in Richmond, BC, with his wife and two sons.
