I have worked over 20 years in corporate world and 8 years in the mental health field. In the mental health field, worked with local and international clients in a variety of settings dealing with range of mental health issues especially anxiety, stress, depression, anger, adjustment disorder, relationship conflicts and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
My speciality is providing Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services to organisations with stress related issues, maximising performance, coping with change and trauma support, providing talks or workshops on topic of managing mental health and provide counselling skills training to managers.
Additionally, I provide counselling service to academic institutions, helping adolescents and university students struggling with stress & anxiety, depression, motivational challenges, academic struggles and relationship issues.
My approach to therapy
I work together with my clients to understand the existing thought patterns that are associated with their current struggles, develop strategies to overcome them and help them to enhance their effectiveness to make decisions to grow and develop.
The goal is to achieve my client’s needs by helping them through difficult issues, build the necessary skills, make their own choices, reach their own decisions, act upon them and stay accountable to achieve good mental wellbeing.
I adopt an eclectic approach, and incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.
I speak English, Malay and Cantonese.
