Feeling Comfortable in my own skin

I have been under Joseph’s counsel and guidance, during my JC time and after my national service, for the accumulated time of 2 years. Throughout this time, he has shown his compassion and dedication towards helping me improve and grow in many aspects of my life. He was there during my JC years to push me through my struggles coping with the stress of school life and social life and he was there to help me after my national service to solidify my beliefs and help me to gain clarity within myself to prepare me for my studies overseas.

During my sessions with him, he will always provide some insight into why I may be feeling a certain way about a particular situation and help me work through my doubts by picking out little details and working through it one by one. He will also provide materials for me to go back and reflect on, which shows the great effort he puts in to help his clients in the best possible way.

Joseph has many strengths but what I feel makes him a great counsellor is how he always goes the extra mile in helping his clients and how he really pays attention and listens and asks questions to help you think about the situation in a different light.

Anxiety is a common feeling amongst many and it is a normal thing to feel anxious, but it is how much it rules your life that will affect the way you think and feel. That is why counselling is here to help people who are in need of managing that anxiety so it does not take over their life. This was what I have learnt and what has stuck with me throughout my time being counselled by Joseph.

I would sincerely like to thank Joseph for helping me to feel comfortable in my own skin and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a counsellor 🙂

[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.
