Incontact Counselling and Training Services in Singapore
Are you feeling sad? Angry? Frustrated? You’re not alone.
As per the statistics, 1 in every 7 people in Singapore are affected by mood, anxiety, or alcohol-abuse disorders in their lifetime.
The study also found that in Singapore, many of those struggling didn’t seek professional help. Past research suggests it could be due to the stigma of mental illness and the inability to recognise the symptoms.
So, just that you’re here, reading this – it shows that you are taking steps to reach out. And we’re proud. And we’re here to help!
At Incontact Counselling & Training (Singapore), we value our clients’ individuality and adapt to the needs of each and every client through the counselling or therapeutic relationship. We maintain a healing contact with our clients and focus on creating a safe space – both physical and psychological – wherein the clients can feel safe and secure to let go of any negative emotions and past experiences that may bother them today, understand and accept themselves fully and expand their self awareness. We incorporate Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, EMDR, Gottman Couples Therapy, Transactional Analysis Techniques and a variety of other empirically based intervention techniques.
We work on helping clients address their problems and move forward in all areas of their life by helping them clarify their issues, explore possible solutions, and equip them with tools to face their problems in life head-on.

Thus, we identify your child’s matters of concern and stress, and truly listen to them as they speak in order to build a meaningful relationship.

Our therapists and counsellors help you process your thoughts and feelings with regards to the traumatic event and help reduce the symptoms much effectively.
In the “new normal” of the COVID 19 inflicted Singapore, counselling services are increasingly being provided over online mediums. Such counselling can be video-call, voice-call or text-based as per your needs. A much safer option, e-counselling is also accessible and convenient if the stigma of mental health and counselling services being a “taboo” troubles you.
In-person counselling is generally more effective and is a better experience, but online counselling can be a good substitute and at times just as effective as the normal form of counselling. Combinations of E-counselling and in-person counselling are also becoming increasingly popular. At Incontact, we give our level best to create your online counselling experience as helpful and productive as possible.
We currently provide retrenchment counselling for employees, give counselling services for emotional and mental wellbeing, and offsite services as well through a code and an online platform called Plato. All of this helps you boost your employees’ productivity, reduce absenteeism, attract and retain talented employees, and create a positive work environment.

“My wife and I approached our counsellor in late 2015 to help us improve communication and understanding in our 10 year marriage. She was with us from our first session and we both are very happy that after 7 months of therapy, my wife and I are happier and at peace with ourselves.”
“The discordant chords of communication were restrung back with time. It made me realise that as parents we are not experts and cannot control my child thinking him to be my property.”
I went to Incontact counseling cause of workplace stress. Each session I walked away more empowered having tackled my weaker spots and learning of tools within me I could use everyday to overcome challenges and stress triggers.
“Thank you for believing in my son. You were the anchor who made it happen. At a time when nothing worked, you came up to show the way. Through your counselling skills, he became insightful and saw self worth. He was able to identify his strength, utilise his potential, nurture his skills.. Thus growth came by naturally…making him a confident and responsible youth who dares to dream now… Words are not enough to express my gratitude… Touch more people…change more lives…”
