Education & Training 

Graduating from National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Social Science (in Psychology, with honours), Jo-an continued on her path in counselling with a Master's Degree from Monash University.

  • Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

Clinical experience

Jo-an has over a decade of experience in psychology across different settings. ​She first delved into health psychology, studied and supported well-being of people suffering with end-stage renal failure. She continued specialising into mental health and spent almost 10 years in a local hospital supporting clients of different presentation. The range includes emotionally distressed perinatal women, adults going through depression, anxiety, personality disorders, insomnia, adjustment, stress and others.

Membership

Interests

Also a certified yoga instructor since 2015, Jo-an believes in the wisdom of the physical body and has seen how working with the body brings about benefits to one's well-being. This has led her to a rabbit hole of self study on yoga & body-based works. As she continues to expand her knowledge, she strives to integrate each modality and infuse these wisdom into her teaching and counselling practice.

Beyond the approaches, Jo-an sees each of her client as uniquely whole persons who could use a safe space to explore deeper and integrate within. Journeying with her clients is something she is passionate about and looks forward to.
