Angela uses a person-centred approach and applies various evidence-based therapeutic methods and techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), to her practice. She believes everyone deserves access to quality mental healthcare and is committed to making a positive difference by supporting individuals as they navigate life’s challenges.
Angela holds a Master of Counselling from Monash University. She has experience working with students at an international school and volunteers at a helpline service that provides free counselling for youth between 13 - 35 years old. She has also worked with prisoners, ex-offenders and at-risk youth, which allowed her to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds with various mental health concerns, such as relationship conflict, trauma, stress, suicide ideation and addictions.
Angela is Singaporean but has lived in Ho Chi Minh and Tokyo for almost 20 years. She is, therefore, adept at working with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and is familiar with the mental health challenges that “third culture” kids and their caregivers face as they cope with transitional issues when living in a foreign country.
