Approximately 30% of the adult population is known to have
a recognized neuropsychological disorder such as ADHD and ASD.
Psychological assessment helps us determine the degree to which
any neurological or cognitive processes that may or may not be related to
individual's presenting concerns impact their
academic, career achievement, and social as well as other important aspects of life.
Importantly, it is aimed to determine what could be the most appropriate ways of
minimizing those impacts on one's developmental achievement across the lifespan.
Psychological assessment process generally involves:
- Initial consultation session
- Cognitive and/or Academic tests
- Report submission and feedback session
Psychological assessment sessions are generally scheduled in-person,
however some components can be conducted online.
Please feel free to contact for more information about the psychological assessment services.
As a psychologist, I offer counselling / therapy services to people of all age groups - mainly children through to young adults - from all walks of life, cultural background, and ethnicities.
with a focus on (but not limited to) Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT is a modern behavioral therapy that emphasizes mindfulness skills to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing psychological flexibility. ACT is an evidenced-based treatment that has been shown to be highly effective in reducing the impact of a wide range of psychopathology (including anxiety, depression, and psychosis) by targeting specific mental processes.
Counselling / therapy services are available both in-person and online.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns in relation to counselling / therapy.
A little more about ACT...
Cognitive Defusion...This skill works to decrease the impact of thoughts on one’s external behavior by identifying the thought as a thought rather than the reality that is currently being experienced. It mindfully cites the source of the thought and creates a small degree of psychological distance between the person and the thought that they just had.
Acceptance...Avoiding, suppressing, or arguing with unwanted thoughts and feelings have been shown to result in more distress than simply accepting them as the experience that one is having in the moment. Acceptance involves “leaning in” towards and “making space” for the unwanted thought or emotion, refusing to struggle with it.
Articulating Values...In order to provide direction while intentionally naming and accepting one’s distress, it is often helpful to contact one’s values. Values are chosen life directions that guide one’s immediate behavior in context.
Committed Action...Once someone has created a sense of psychological distance from their thoughts and feelings (cognitive defusion), recognizing and accepting them for what they are (acceptance), and has contacted relevant values to live out in the moment (articulating values), creating an action plan is important.
Swimming through the sea of abundance of information can be overwhelming. Knowing what and who may be right for us and where to seek help from is not easy. When we are experiencing difficulty to focus, feeling anxious or blue, taking that very first step can be challenging and nerve-wrecking.
Importantly also, we have to be mindful about the cost of services. By joining forces with other
multi-lingual mental health professionals, I aim to share the resources that could assist you
in taking the first step towards seeking help.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is any useful resources that I might be able to provide.
