Powering Up to Face Upcoming Challenges

I am very grateful to Joseph who has been a wonderful pillar of support for me since December 2019.

It took me months before I could take the first step to seek professional assistance again. Not only do I need a counsellor who is experienced in workplace issues and personal development, but also someone who could really understand me and recognise what I need even when I couldn’t find the right words.

It helps that the team at Singapore Counselling Centre is so helpful and responsive in making the earliest possible appointment for me despite a short notice. The centre is professionally-manned and I do not feel like I am being judged or made uncomfortable.

During the sessions, Joseph always listened attentively to what I had to say. He is encouraging yet genuine with his feedback in a positive and assuring way. He does not sugar coat his words but rather, he shares practical feedback that could really help me to overcome or resolve painful episodes.

Being an idealist workaholic, I have high expectations of myself and those around me. This is a double-edged sword that may not sit well with most people in my current work environment. Joseph aligned my thoughts to the real world and helped me understand how I can strive forward. After all, everybody goes to work with different agendas. I accepted that not everybody is single-minded or motivated enough to give their best each time. He is very generous in sharing nuggets of wisdom in psychoeducation which is useful for me to learn more about my condition (mild depression, burnout and anxiety) and how I can better cope with it.

I may not be 100% there yet, but I certainly feel more empowered to navigate and face upcoming challenges knowing that I am well supported.

Thank you Joseph for navigating life challenges with me at my darkest hour.

Thank You Note

I’ve laughed and cried in those sessions with you. I was angry and hurt and ashamed, but most importantly, I’ve healed. Thank you for helping me cope with the pain and also how to see things differently.

Finding a Safe Space and Overcoming Unhelpful Thoughts

I came to SCC hoping to find a safe space to share my thoughts and feelings surrounding the difficulties I was experiencing. Rafeah was able to create that safe space for me where I felt comfortable to open up and trust her.

Overcoming a Past Relationship

After the break up, it was even harder to accept reality and how things had turn out leading me to getting disturbed sleep and losing my focus in a lot of things. To be honest, at that moment, crying, feeling helpless, not wanting to accept any help (feeling that I am not even worth helping) and committing suicide was even on my thoughts.

Restoring a Marriage

We had gone from having cold wars and fighting, to being able to have discussion about proper parenting of our daughter and how to address her developmental needs.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

I’m happier than I was a couple months ago. I feel less afraid of the constantly-changing world and how I thought I needed to fix everything that was wrong and evil going on all the time, if not I was just wasting my life. I have a lot of gratitude for Rafeah because she sat with me through all of this, and helped guide me towards a lot of insight and revelations about myself.

Looking Forward to Creating The Life I Desire

Now, I have the ability to do things I could never have done previously since my mind is clear without unbearable amounts of repressed grief, anger and extreme feelings of injustice clouding my justice and hampering my ability to focus and prioritize.

[Testimonial] Uncovering Issues and Resolving Them

I felt overwhelmed at first but step by step she guided me through and I overcame my negative thoughts and got rid of toxic people in my life who I previously thought were not affecting me at all.

[Testimonial] Discovering My Own Identity and Understanding Myself

I have gained a better understanding of myself and learned to be better than who I was previously after attending the counseling sessions. I'm very grateful to the counsellor for everything which he has done to help us as we wouldn't have made much progress without him.
