School counselling in Hong Kong eagerly look for effective ways to support students in needs. In this study, psychosocial condition was mainly conceptualized as well-being, aimed at improving the psychosocial effects by cultivating a state of mindful awareness, as school counselling intends to achieve. The study aims to 1) examine the participants’ constructs of mindfulness; 2) evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of the programme, and 3) to evaluate its possible impacts for improving the psychosocial condition of student in the context of school guidance. Finally, the implication for the development of cultural approaches to counselling will be discussed, in against the situation that the counselling theories and practices currently adopted by Hong Kong schools are mainly “borrowed” from western societies.
