Foong Pooi Yin

Professional Counsellor
Language Spoken:
English, Mandarin, Malay, Cantonese
Type of Counselling: Child/Youth, Individual Adult

Pooi Yin has come to counselling to follow her calling in life after ten year career in the corporate healthcare industry giving her a unique breadth of experience. One of the reasons she left this field for counselling was that she felt the growing realisation that for most people, in order to function and excel would in many cases do so by shutting away their emotions and cares.

By adopting integrative techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Schema Therapy, Sandplay Therapy and Symbol Work during the counselling process, she addresses the difficulties faced by her clients including individuals and families as well as youth, adolescent and professionals from many cultural backgrounds.

Pooi Yin has been supporting clients suffering from long term illnesses, stress, grief, depression, anxiety, eating disorder, special needs, suicidal, trauma, cultural adjustment and other mental illnesses.

Pooi Yin can conduct the counselling session in English, Mandarin, Malay and Cantonese.
