  • Assessment & Intervention for Adults

    After the clinical interview with the psychologist, we will derive a case formulation and a suitable treatment plan for the client. There are different therapies and interventions that can be used depending on the client’s condition.
    • Psychotherapies: Psychotherapy is a commonly used therapy since it provides a safe haven for the client to talk about the problem. It is a collaborative treatment which is based on the relationship between the client and the therapist, based on dialogues to obtain a clearer view of the situation. Some examples of psychotherapy include Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and more.
    • Couple Therapy/Marital Therapy: Couple Therapy/Marital Therapy helps couples to improve their relationships. Therapy often includes sessions designed to improve problem solving skills, build communication skills, and identify life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common issues include infidelity, financial problems, anger management, illness and other life changes, and anger.
    • Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy/Family Therapy: The aim of Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy is to help the members of the family to understand each other better, change dysfunctional relationships, and sort out any disputes. It also aims to recognise an individual’s virtues and build upon these during the sessions. Members of the family will need to work collaboratively to achieve their goals.
    • Mindfulness Self-Compassion Therapy: Mindfulness refers to the ability of one to be aware of any experiences from one moment to the next. It also refers to being aware of the present moment, exploring and understanding emotion without prejudice. Self-compassion refers to the ability to comfort oneself in times of hardship, and to motivate oneself when faced with challenges. Through mindfulness self-compassion therapy, the therapist helps the client to increase the sense of awareness and self-worthiness.
    • Sand Tray Therapy: Sand tray therapy allows the client to create and project his or her inner world through the interaction of figurines and the embellishment of the sand. Figurines such as people, animals, buildings, objects, and nature are provided. The client will choose the figurines in which these figurines will be arranged, moved, or played with within a sand tray. The scene created acts as a reflection of the client’s own life and creates the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.
    • Expressive Arts Therapy: Expressive arts therapy allows the client to freely express him or herself in any art forms: drawing, painting, music, writing, or dancing. The client will be able to convey the thoughts and feelings that are hidden deep in him or her, and explore the reactions, responses and insights from the arts produced. The purpose of expressive arts therapy is not to create a “beautiful” or “perfect” piece of art, but rather, serves as a medium for the client to communicate information that is hard to convey in words.
    • Anger Management: Anger itself is not considered a disorder, but anger is a known symptom of several mental health conditions. During the therapy, the client will be able to identify the stressors that triggers the anger. They will learn the steps to manage anger without allowing the anger to take control.
    • Social Skills Training: Social Skills Training will help the client who is deficient in socialisation. Social skills training aims to help the client to improve skills such as communication, friendships, and problem solving
  • “Mindful parenting is the hardest job on the planet, but it’s also one that has the potential for the deepest kinds of satisfactions over the life span, and the greatest feelings of interconnectedness, community and belonging.”
    – Emeritus Professor Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn
