Welcome to my humble website
Society today is rife with complexities and complications. The line between personal and working lives are increasingly blurred. At most times, I'm a psychotherapist to clients struggling with emotional and relational challenges. And on a few occasions, a consultant on diversity and inclusion to businesses and government agencies. After-hours, you'll find me taking in the role of an advocate for persons with disabilities. I am especially passionate about Guide Dogs and equal opportunities for the Disabled in the Asian Context.

Counselling Therapy Services
Most people seek counselling when they recognise they need help to face certain challenges. If you are unhappy and feel mentally or emotionally stuck, counselling can help you to clear the blockages and improve different aspects of your life.
If you already have clear goals on what you want to achieve, executive coaching can provide the support you need to reach these goals.
Sometimes confiding in friends and family may not be enough. They may jump on your side or tell you their opinion on what is best, but a professional who is objective with no vested interests can help you see your situation differently. As a professional counsellor and coach, I am trained to help you activate your strengths and apply strategies to overcome your challenges and help you listen to yourself.
There is also the risk that you could start avoiding friends and family that you confided in before if you feel ashamed about the difficult times in your life or if you do not want to be reminded of the negative emotions you experienced.
Every counselling or coaching session is entirely confidential and you can talk about your challenges without any judgement or expectations from the other person. I primarily use Solution-Focused Brief Therapy as a Master Solution Focused practitioner but may use other approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy and transactional analysis depending on your needs.
I offer individual counselling and executive coaching sessions at the clinic in Tanglin Shopping Centre or online via phone or video calls.
Individual counselling sessions can benefit you if you are experiencing depression or anxiety as you gain insight into your mental, emotional or relationship struggles. You learn about why you feel the way you do, reduce worrying, balance your thinking and bring your focus away from negative thoughts, resolve practical problems that are causing stress, and equip you with tools and strategies to start feeling better.
The Back On Your Feet Package includes one initial 1.5-hour session and five 1-hour sessions that is designed to help you achieve emotional and mental equilibrium within 2 months.
Executive coaching sessions enable you to define the areas you need coaching in to reach your goals and receive follow-up support.
In the first session, I will seek to make an initial assessment of your situation including your reasons for seeking counselling or coaching, your personal history, your current situation and any symptoms you are experiencing. Being open, honest and asking questions will help you to get the most out of your sessions.
