      I see children and adults with various psychological issues.

      When I had completed my master’s degree in educational psychology, I worked in several educational organizations that operate international schools, private schools and kindergartens. Soon, I pursued a master’s degree in clinical psychology, and upon graduation, I worked in 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 Dyslexia Program together with my team of graduates from the psychoeducational background.

      Apart from dyslexia, I assess and treat different kinds of childhood disorders such as Attention Deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), School Refusal, Mood Disorders such as Depression, Anxiety Disorders and Phobias, Eating Disorders, Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorders, and other neurodevelopmental and psychological problems. I also help children who struggle with low self-esteem, poor social skills, anger and aggression, trauma, shyness, bully, poor attachment, emotional neglect, physical and sexual abuse, bereavement and self-harm.

      My clinical work extends to adults population including parents, college students and adults who have deficits in different aspects of functioning in life. I provide coaching for parents in dealing with their children’s problematic behaviours. I facilitate dysfunctional families to regain trust and integrity. I help adults who are struggle with Depression, Anxiety and Phobias, Trauma- and Stress-related Disorders, Gender Dysphoria, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social and Interpersonal problems and so forth.

      My treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and modern CBTs, Applied Behavioural Analysis, Positive Parenting, Social Skills Training, Therapeutic Play Therapy, and Expressive Arts Therapy., Satir Transformational Systematic Therapy, Emotive Behavioural Therapy (EBT), part of Rogerian and Mindfulness-related therapies.

      As a mental health professional, I am obliged to being non-judgmental in alleviating clients’ distress and suffering, respect clients’ integrity and competence, and to facilitate a sense of self in my clients. I believe everyone is unique and deserves a satisfactory life.

      Prior to my first degree in Psychology, I had the privilege to work in a psychiatric clinic and was exposed to the mental health field. Soon after, I realized my passion was for children with learning difficulties and pursued my Master’s degree in Educational Psychology.

      My work experience mainly involved educating children in educational settings which accommodate to the child’s learning needs and progress. I have worked in learning centers which encourage both independent learning and student-based learning where students play an active role in the learning process. Besides that, I have also worked with children who have Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and Dyspraxia. I have also been actively involved in voluntary and religious works which involved teaching children who are less privileged.

      On the other hand, my research studies focused largely on the field of reading. My research has helped me understand children with various reading difficulties better and the teachers’ role in helping these children master reading, spelling and writing.

      Both my work and voluntary experiences revealed my love for children and the passion to teach using various methods according to the needs of the child. As a strong believer of individualized education, my heart’s desire is to see every child achieve his/her true potential with the appropriate support and guidance. That said, I hope to be a blessing to the children and families I will encounter throughout my career!

  • ”My son was reluctant to go to school and daycare. Every morning it was difficult to take him to daycare and in the afternoon to school. He was always crying, yelling and to one extent, grabbed the steering wheel while I was driving. He developed anxiety and fear. He became unhappy. We brought him for therapy sessions at Ding Child Psychology Centre. Initially, he was scared to participate in the first two sessions. However, as the session progressed from the third to the fifth, we observed my son was becoming more cheerful and confident. He slowly attended school without much complaining. Today, after tenth session, he is more confident”
