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.

[Testimonial] Counselling Experience

I signed up for 3 counselling sessions with SCC as part of my company’s Employee Assistance Programme. Even though I am not currently experiencing major issues or distresses in my professional or personal life, I believe that counselling is a good platform for increasing one’s self-awareness and would highly recommend it for anyone seeking personal development.

[Testimonial] Counselling Experience with Joseph

I've felt comfortable sharing my thoughts with him, and I've improved tremendously since my first session.

[Testimonial] Counselling Experience with Joseph

Joseph clearly explained his approach to counselling and the issues he would like to focus on from the get-go. The transparency and predictability Joseph provided helped to reduce my anxiety level before and during the counselling session. Overall, I have benefited from Joseph's genuineness, compassion, sensitivity and expertise in trauma work.

[Testimonial] Brainspotting & EMDR

I have had positive responses with brainspotting and EMDR as part of my therapy. The first time I tried EMDR was to deal with the episodes of intense anxiety after a breakup. During the session, I could feel the anxiety leaving my body. After the first session, I could feel that my anxiety level has significantly reduced and it was a lot easy to cope.

[Testimonial] Brainspotting and EDMR

During the sessions, she introduced me to EMDR/ Brainspotting Therapies. The exercises got me to assess the emotions and feelings that I have not been able to let out before. As I tap into these deep-seated emotions, I get to address issues in the past that I haven't had the chance to before

[Testimonial] Brainspotting and EMDR

When I first heard about EMDR/Brainspotting, I was quite skeptical since it sounded like some kind of pseudoscience. However, I thought there was no harm in giving it a try, and found it effective.

[Testimonial] Brainspotting and EMDR

I often felt much lighter after the brainspotting and EMDR session, not only due to relishing the unpleasant emotions but more importantly, rewiring the memories. I vividly remember that after one session, the initially grey and gloomy images of a piece of my memory were transformed into colourful and blissful ones. I also managed to remember more joyful details which I initially thought were nonexistent.
