My journey into the realm of psychology started when I was a schoolboy of 14. I went through my share of teenage angst where I was angry at everyone and anything. However, I was fortunate enough to have a fantastic group of friends who managed to help me overcome my difficulties. It was this experience that sparked my love for pyschology and the believe that we all have it in ourselves to get back on our feet again.
My main therapeutic orientation is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or CBT. The basic idea of CBT is, "I think therefore I am", where our action, behaviours and emotions are the product of our thoughts and beliefs which are oftentimes negative. CBT thus allows us to identify these negative thoughts and then modify them into thoughts which are more rational and functional. I am also well versed in the use of behavioral techniques and interventions. These techniques have been useful in helping those who experience difficulties with behavioral difficulties (e.g. school refusal, breaking bad habits), ADHD, as well as in helping individuals manage fears and phobias.
Therapy is a journey that many would find daunting and my aim is try and make that journey as comfortable as possible. At the end of the day, therapy is a collaboration between two individuals, trying to achieve a common goal. Life is what you make of it, and I hope that I can play apart in helping you choose to live your life to the fullest.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I've wanted to be a therapist and be involved with therapy since I was 14 years old. Since then, my entire academic life has been built around helping me achieve my goal of being a therapist. Therapy for me is something I revel in and enjoy completely, seeing it not so much as work, but a pursuit of my passion.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
I say, try it out and see what happens. Its unfortunate that therapy, especially in Malaysia, is often associated with severe mental health disorders. I hope that I'll be able to show that therapy can be for everyone, to learn more about themselves, and to help them overcome any difficulties that they may be going through
