      Consultant Educational Psychologist

      Work experience:

      When I had completed my master’s degree in educational psychology in 2000, I worked in several educational organisations that operated international schools and kindergartens. Then, I pursued a master’s degree in clinical psychology. Upon graduating in 2007, I worked at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

      My work for children is extensively focused on learning disorders in children and adolescents such as Specific Learning Disorders (e.g. Dyslexia). I have developed my very own in-house Ding Dyslexia Programme together with my team of graduates. My clinical work also involves assessing and/or treating other childhood disorders such as childhood depression and anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorders, eating disorders, socialisation difficulties, low self-esteem, school refusal, grief, and bereavement, and so forth.  I coach parents and caregivers on mindful parenting. My clinical work also involves helping resolving conflicts among members of the families.

      My clinical work with adults includes their struggles to find a balance in life. I have helped adults with depression, anxiety, trauma- and stress-related disorders, gender dysphoria, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, grief and bereavement, and other psychosocial problems. I also have helped couples to deal with their marital conflicts.

      My treatment modalities include cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based therapies such as acceptance commitment therapy and dialectical personality disorder, applied behavioural analysis, mindful parenting, family therapy, social skills training, therapeutic play therapy, and expressive arts therapy, and Satir’s therapeutic skills.

      I believe everyone is unique and deserves a satisfying and fulfilling life. As a mental health professional, I am obliged to being non-judgemental in helping clients to address and overcome their distresses and sufferings, respect their integrity and competence, and to enhance their sense of self and self-compassion.
