Restoring a Marriage

When we first approached Joseph in late 2018, I felt that our marriage was not salvageable because of all the problems we seemed to have.

But through a series of very quick individual sessions, Joseph had managed to peg down some of deeply recessed problems that we had been suppressing for a very long time. And he managed to build a strong rapport with my wife so she had the courage to finally speak her mind so we could resolve the issues that had always been deeply buried in her heart.

With his guidance, our couple sessions were very fruitful and we were able to start having proper genuine conversations again and we were able to start holding each other accountable for our actions without it descending into blame fighting.

By 9 months, 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. We continue to see Joseph regularly as his experience and jovial nature help to keep conversations on topic and focused on resolving problems.

We still want to keep seeing Joseph, so if you are reading this, please go pick a different counselor.
Joseph is already hard enough to book an appointment with as it is. Thanks.

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.

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.
