Choosing a psychologist can be a difficult and sometimes daunting task. So, for you to find the right therapist, you may want to know whether the psychologist is flexible in adapting therapy specifically for you.

I attained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Queensland in Australia. I have been practicing for over 10 years as a Clinical Psychologist, focusing on adolescent and adult mental health. My work involved both public and private mental health services as well as in community and inpatient settings.

For a number of years I have lectured full-time at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in Clinical Psychology. I have also served as Clinical Supervisor for students completing their Masters in Clinical Psychology at NUS.

I firmly believe that people encounter difficulties when issues they are dealing with exceed their available resources to cope. My therapeutic approach focuses on teaching skills, including effective communication, positive parenting, emotional regulation, problem solving, effective ways of thinking, and various other coping skills. In addition, I believe that people are distinct and supporting their journey to emotional health requires an approach that is personalized to their needs.

I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including cognitive bahavioural treatment, mindfulness, and schema, experiential, interpersonal and psychodynamic therapies.

My work with families and individuals covers a broad array of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, adjustment, self-harm, addictions, anger, parenting and relationship problems.

I supervise clinical psychologists in training and provide supervision to numerous other mental health professionals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. We will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that worsens your mood.

By the time you finish, you will not only have solved the issue that brought you in, but you will have acquired new skills to better cope with whatever difficulties you encounter in the future.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Once in a while, we may find ourselves facing problems we are no longer able to cope with adequately. I believe that it takes strength to seek help. Furthermore, with the advent of the internet and the wide availability of information, people are increasingly recognising that therapy is a lifestyle choice and that it is the smart and effective alternative to suffering in silence. In my experience, many clients arrive at the first therapy session feeling nervous. However when they find themselves in a warm and accepting therapeutic environment, gain a better understanding of the cause of their problems and how effective treatment work, they normally feel much more assured.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Psychotherapy generally takes about 15 weekly sessions. However, if your issues are complex and longstanding, it may take longer. You will determine when therapy is complete, based on how well you feel.
