Child & Adolescent Therapy

My extensive clinical experience of offering therapy to Children & Adolescents with complex conditions is reflected all through my clinical caseload in Singapore. I often receive complex cases that have had little or no progress in other routine therapeutic contacts. My therapy cases include complex adolescent patients with self-harm, suicidal behaviours, sexually deviant behaviours, conduct problems, and emerging personality problems. I also offer psychotherapy to adolescents with complex trauma due to physical and sexual abuse, with significant dissociation and PTSD symptoms. Some of young people present with dual diagnosis of mental health problems and special needs, e.g. Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD which poses a challenge of modifying and adapting CBT (and other behavioural) techniques to their advantage.

I also offer therapy to children and young people age 4-18 presenting with emotional and behavioural problems, such as anxiety, phobia, depression, OCD, elimination disorders (enuresis encopresis), habit disorders, attachment disorders, binge eating disorders, conduct problems, ASD, ADHD, school refusal, and victims of physical, sexual & emotional abuse.
