Counsellor/Psychotherapist based in Singapore (S.E Asia). Cross-cultural, young people, family specialist. Time-limited counselling or long-term therapy. Online and in-person service. Holistic mental wellness support.
I am a friendly and fully qualified counsellor committed to providing a confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have 10 years of experience in working with a diverse range of clients, including people who identify as LGBTQ+. For me, the heart of counselling is a good relationship between client and counsellor. This helps to create a safe and respectful setting for exploration, reflection and understanding of what is important to you.
As we are all individual and unique, people will naturally need different things from counselling. I use an integrative, person-centred approach which means that we can work together in a way which best suits you, drawing from different techniques which will support you through the process of counselling. I will help you to reflect and explore to find your own solutions and your own methods of overcoming challenges.
I believe that counselling should be completely non-discriminatory. As an essential part of this belief I work with a LGBTQ+/GSRD affirmative approach. I am also sensitive to issues surrounding BAME communities, race, ethnicity and culture as well as individuals’ religious beliefs. I am an Accredited member of the BACP and I am on their Register of Practitioners. I also adhere to their ethical framework for good practice, attend regular professional supervision and ensure I take part in continuing professional development training.
I offer an initial session at a reduced rate. This is for us to discuss what has brought you to counselling and what your expectations of it are, as well as for you to be able to raise any questions or concerns you may have about counselling. It will also be a chance for us to see if we will be comfortable working [...]
People can benefit from counselling for many reasons; to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress; for support in times of difficulty; or to seek greater self-awareness and fulfilment in life, enabling growth and deeper understanding.
It is not always easy to speak to friends or family about difficult or personal issues and it can help to speak to a counsellor who will not judge you or tell you what to do. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard, to enable you to make your own decisions, in a supportive and confidential environment.
If you think counselling could help you, please do get in touch and we can arrange an initial appointment to see how we can work together.
I practice from a humanistic integrative approach which means that I use theories and techniques from various psychotherapeutic perspectives. I also use a relational analytic approach which uses the relationship between therapist and client to explore and deepen the work. We will initially discuss the reasons for you seeking therapy and if we are happy to proceed, we will arrange an initial session in which you will have the opportunity to find out if you think counselling could help you and if so, we will work towards an agreed plan for our therapy.
It is usual to plan for six or twelve sessions, with regular reviews to assess how the therapy is going and we can add or reduce the number at any time. There is no obligation to continue and you may finish therapy at any stage, although it is beneficial to work towards a planned ending. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held at the same time each week, although fortnightly sessions are also available.
I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Advance Clinical Practice), [...]
