EMDR Basic Training

Resting Tree Counselling

Hi there, it is my honour to meet with you here. As a therapist, I am generally guided by a compassion-focused, and humanistic approach that involves reflective conversations as well as skills training. For trauma-related issues, my preferred treatment methods are Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Accelerated Dynamic Experiential Psychotherapy (AEDP). Since every client has unique needs, I also work by integrating tools and techniques from different therapy approaches.

A little bit about myself — I was born, raised and educated in Singapore, where I practised as a Registered Psychologist for more than seven years in schools, medical and community settings. Given my multicultural background from Singapore, I am comfortable and attuned to various ethnicities. While I am trained to work with a range of concerns, I have all along been most interested and experienced in working with young adults and women who are facing issues related to trauma, stress, anxiety or mood disorders.

My Personal Journey: C-PTSD and Chronic Pain
My interest towards counselling psychology developed from personal experiences with trauma as well as coping with an autoimmune condition. Through my own personal therapy, lifelong learning on re-parenting, and actively caring for myself, I have been experiencing significant improvement in my health and well-being.

Coming to therapy isn’t easy, but it is an act of courage, honesty and self-love. When you are ready to take your first step, I will be here for you.
