Masters in Clinical Psychologist
Bachelor in Psychology
The curiosity of human behaviour and mind is so vast that it has led me to persue the undergraduate degree in psychology. Upon completion, I find myself exploring the field of working with special needs children where I provide behavioural management plan for children of autism spectrum disorder. My passion towards mental health field has also made me active in advocating for mental health causes and rights.
Which brought me to achieve my postgraduate training in Clinical Psychology. During my training, I was placed in various settings which includes governmental hospital, covid quarantine centres, governmental clinics and early intervention centre. My experiences have allowed me to gain experiences in working with integrative social communication groups for special needs population, teenagers with behavioural/emotional problems and young adults with suicidal tendencies. I am trained in conducting psychological assessments for children which includes intelligence, behavioural and emotional assessments.
In terms of therapeutic orientation, I often use integrative approach in my therapy incorporating techniques mainly from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Mindfullness. I believe that the therapeutic journey is unique and special for every individual so in the process of ensuring that you receive the best treatment, I would give recommendations based on the scientist-practitioner model. Currently, I am actively utilizing solution based approach for corporate clients who are looking into mastering their resiliency skills.
Our lives are a series of intertwined events, thoughts and emotions. Sometimes one of these things tend to get more overwhelmed than the others. My role is to provide assistance in restoring that balance through active collaboration and figuring out together with you what works best. Following the wise words of Carl Rogers,
“Growth occurs when individuals confront problems, struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop new aspects of their skills, capacities, views about life.”
