BACKGROUND 
I am a medical doctor by training. During my early years as a doctor, I worked in different hospitals and treated patients with various medical and surgical conditions. I even delivered more than 30 babies during my OB-GYN posting at the National University Hospital (NUH). However, with a deep interest in the human mind, I eventually decided to pursue further training in psychiatry so as to help people suffering from psychological illnesses. I also received training in the field of addiction medicine.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?
It all started with a novel called Doctors, written by Erich Segal. I became intrigued by Barney Livingston who was a psychiatrist and the main character in the story. It tells the story of the challenges and joy of helping people with psychological adversities.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Imagine a tree. Mental health is like its roots, unseen but no less important than the other parts of the tree. Without its roots, the tree perishes. The root system going deep down into the ground also represents the complex neural network and intricate nervous system in our brain.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

People are less afraid to talk about mental health issues or to seek help for psychological problems. But more can be done. More awareness is still needed. If you seek treatment without a second thought when you are having the flu or stomach upset, you should equally be ready to seek treatment when you are emotionally distressed.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

When I set up RESILIENZ, I had the vision of helping people build their psychological immunity to defend against life’s adversities so that they can be resilient and hardy. I believe that every individual can bounce back from any adversity. RESILIENZ lends that hand to help you rebound.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Watching movies and cycling at the beach.

BACKGROUND

I trained and worked extensively in the U.S. My clinical experience was derived from working in schools, outpatient clinics, assisted living facilities, and psychiatric hospitals. Given personal experiences, I have an interest in working with the expatriation and re-expatriation process. I am also fascinated with the stigma of mental illness that deters help-seeking behaviours in our society.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

I was travelling on the MRT when I noticed a teenager talking and laughing to a handrail. The conversation between two young nurses shocked me the most because they showed me the existence of the stigma of mental illness. This encounter left such a strong impression on me.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Our mental health consists of our emotional, cognitive, and social functioning. The way we think, feel, and act is impacted by the state of our mental health.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

I believe the advocacy for the mental health field will be an enduring process. I personally see value in educating our next generation about the importance of mental health starting at a young age. These early interventions will increase the likelihood of them internalizing effective coping skills, thus integrating them into their core identity.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

The RESILIENZ family is lively, caring, and intellectually provoking. I am also exposed to colleagues with different specialities. I think the heart of it all is understanding the challenge of finding a psychiatrist who treats from the heart. Therefore, I am fortunate to be working with one here at RESILIENZ.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I enjoy the company of my 3 adorable rabbits. I also love spending outdoors time with my nephew and niece. When I have the opportunity to travel, I love trying cuisines from different cultures, scuba diving, and museum hopping.

BACKGROUND

My clinical experience gained from working in nursing homes and schools built me into the therapist I am today. I have experience in working with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, grief, and behavioural issues that suggest delinquency. My therapeutic work with people from walks of life gave me insights into some of the problems we may struggle with at different life stages.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

As a teenager, I was intrigued by how the human mind works. It was fascinating to observe that people have idiosyncratic ways about behaving and achieving their goals. In particular, I was interested in how the unconscious and subconscious mind stalls or drives an individual to act, in response to the messages and meanings one makes of their world.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

I would define mental health as the adaptability and functionality of the human psyche in areas of daily living.

 

3. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

The fantastic colleagues, great working environment, and support from peers and supervisors contribute to the enjoyment of working for RESILIENZ. The openness of the company towards exploring and trying out new means of psychotherapy such as Virtual Reality therapy, Walk-A-Talk Therapy, sets the company apart.

 

4. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Running and calisthenics, reading, cooking and woodwinds.

BACKGROUND

I obtained a joint Master of Clinical Psychology degree from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of Melbourne. My prior experience includes working for the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and at various hospitals. I am skilled at conducting assessments and psychotherapy for children, adults and the elderly who may have a variety of medical and psychological conditions.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

It began when I first took psychology in university. My passion continues to grow as I drew strength from my previous work in MSF and holding onto the belief that we, as a helping profession, can guide individuals with mental illness through their recovery journey.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Mental health is the psychological (including emotional and social) well-being of an individual. It has a direct influence on the general functioning of the individual and others around him/her.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

In my opinion, people are still reserved towards seeking medical and psychological assistance for mental health issues. While there may be recognised efforts among various agencies that are working towards raising awareness and reducing stigmatisation, it will be an ongoing process of improvement and change.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

I enjoy working at RESILIENZ because I am exposed to a variety of patient referrals, different work opportunities (e.g. conducting talks and workshops, organising events/activities, having media exposure), high ethical standards, and the friendly and nurturing work environment.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Social activities with friends, yoga, and reading.

BACKGROUND

I worked extensively with trauma patients in Changi General Hospital (CGH) and provided psychotrauma interventions and counselling. I was also deployed to local and overseas crises to provide psychological, humanitarian, and search and rescue assistance (e.g., the SQ006 crash in 2000, the collapse of the Nicoll Highway in 2004, and the Asian tsunami in 2005). I served on the National CARE (Caring Action in Response to Emergency) Management Committee as a board member, on top of being a CARE officer and trainer.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

At 11, I was given a book “Introduction to Psychology”. I became intrigued with human behaviours, the mind, and what makes people tick. I was also fascinated with human psychopathology. I decided at that juncture that I would study human behaviours and the mental processes.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Mental health equates to the psychological well-being of a person. It is about the person’s ability to function effectively, while realizing his/her own full potential in the society and within one’s community.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

Owing to social media and increased awareness of mental health issues, the social stigma associated with mental illness have diminished over the years. The common misperceptions of mental illness were previously related to personal weakness and/or a lack of hard work to stay positive.
We are more willing to seek help today because of better awareness and education. Family members and friends are more open and supportive towards their loved ones seeking mental health services now compared to years ago.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

I appreciate the great synergy in our team as we work to improve the mental wellness of our community. My colleagues and I are like different parts of a body; each highly skilled in their own areas of expertise, while complementing each other. I love the genuine care and authenticity of the team towards our patients. We also learn and grow together as a team.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Needlework, crafting, and reading! I also enjoy sports, be it cycling, dancing, or swimming. When I have time, I bake. I can make a pretty mean traditional Kueh Lapis!

BACKGROUND

I have worked in general and psychiatric hospitals and in forensic settings, both locally and in Australia over the years. I worked for the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for more than 13 years, conducting psychological assessments and psychotherapy before transitioning into RESILIENZ.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

I became interested in the mental health profession after watching TV dramas related to people with psychological problems seeking psychiatric help from “shrinks”. I was inspired to understand people who needed more than just medical help and how this help can be provided to them. I was certain about pursuing psychology and headed straight onto this path during tertiary education. There was no turning back since.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Mental health is the state of a person’s well-being. It is more than the absence of negative states, such as depression and anxiety. Mental health also encompasses the positive states, such as a healthy self-esteem and having satisfaction with one’s life.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

I think much have changed since I entered the mental health profession in 2001. Mental health issues are garnering more attention today due to increased awareness through the dissemination of information through our media outlets. The public gains better understanding towards depression, suicide, and anxiety as a result. Despite greater awareness towards mental health issues and reduced social stigma, I believe more can be done to further overcome the social stigma of seeking mental health services.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

RESILIENZ is a centre that truly cares about the well-being of our patients and is compassionate and genuine towards the services we provide. It is also a fun and fulfilling place to work in because of like-minded colleagues sharing the same passion of serving others in need.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Being a mother to four children in addition to my clinical work can be hectic at times, yet fulfilling and meaningful! I share my children’s hobbies. When they go on their bikes, scooters, or skates, I do the same and have fun bonding with them!

I also appreciate the quiet moments where I can recharge and rejuvenate. Reading is also something I love to do. I enjoy spending time with friends and immersing myself in our deep conversations about our lives, visions, and faith.

BACKGROUND

I have more than 10 years of corporate experience in Marketing research before embarking on my counselling career. Being a counsellor in a polytechnic and an art school expanded my knowledge in working with youths because I started to understand their social pressures. Working in private practice allowed me to work with a different clinical population consisting mainly of adults with personal or marital issues.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

It started with volunteering my time at church where I counselled adults with some deep-seated issues. I became really inspired to do more after witnessing the people I helped get better gradually.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Mental health is the mental state that allows one to function effectively in daily living, with a general sense of contentment. The individual is able to be fairly objective and is accepting of differing opinions without extreme reactions.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

It seems to worsen with our stressful lifestyle as we try to keep up with societal demands. For example, the increasing global competition forces companies to create a competitive edge over others. This omnipresent threat of losing out adds to our stress levels. I can also see the rising societal and parental expectations adding to the current stress levels of our next generation

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

I appreciate RESILIENZ’s caring and relaxing environment that allows myself and patients to feel at ease. RESILIENZ’s holistic approach to medication and psychotherapy is what I stand for and truly respect.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I love to spend time with my children. I also enjoy reading. I read a wide range of books. My favourite genre is Non-Fiction, with the occasional exception of some fiction books with good recommendations!

BACKGROUND

I started as a counsellor and psychologist after earning my Diploma in Counselling and a Post-Graduate Diploma in psychology. However, I was always interested in the combination of Expressive Arts and psychotherapy. This led me to attain my Master in Art Therapy.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

My experience working with children who were inflicted with cancer and their families led to the realization that ‘words are not enough’. Words seem incapable of helping us fully express our deep and complex thoughts and emotions. These unsettling thoughts, coupled with my own creative art experiences, led me to Art therapy.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

I think mental health can be likened to an art canvas. The canvas, an integral material, on which art can be created. Its care and preparation are of utmost importance, and it holds together the efforts and expressions of the artist.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

I think it has made good progression in the last 10years. There are greater awareness and acceptance. I certainly have great hopes that Art therapy will in time, be a greater part of the mental health scene in Singapore.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

I think RESILIENZ is an example of the future mental health scene. It is inclusive, progressive, and open to alternate forms of therapy such as Art therapy.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

If spending time with my children can be considered a hobby, that would be at the top of my list! Other than that, making art of course!

BACKGROUND

Prior to joining RESILIENZ, I worked as an Administrative Assistant at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH)’s Department of Addiction Medicine. That was also where I met Dr. Thomas Lee.

Choosing to join the mental health industry was a unique experience for me. I was accustomed to managing family businesses and was expected to continue in this area. It came as a surprise to my family when I choose a totally different path.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

A majority of my previous work experiences involved backend work, which severely limiting my exposure to the actual services rendered to IMH’s patients. After having the opportunity to set up RESILIENZ and be intricately involved in its daily operations, I fell in love with my work and there is no turning back!

 

2. How would you define mental health?

Mental health is about expressing one’s emotions from a drawing to a storyboard. When our emotions are well regulated, this drawing tells a clear and beautiful story. When our emotions are out of control, the story becomes blurry and confusing. In such times, we can engage the help of an editor (psychiatrist or therapist) to help us get back on track and to reorganize our storyboard again.

 

3. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

We work hard and play hard as a team! All of us are closely bonded, like a big family. It is amazing that even our new colleagues can easily blend into the RESILIENZ family, as if they have been working with us for years!

 

4. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

Running and hunting down delicious local delights with friends and family!

BACKGROUND

I have been in Sales and Business Development for over a decade. I travelled extensively, helping the businesses I worked for to expand and grow regionally and internationally. ‘One should always keep an open mind to explore the world of opportunities’, that’s my motto in life!

 

1. Where did your passion begin?
I was exposed to the mental health industry during my pharmaceutical tenure. The experience gave me new perspectives on our psychological wellness and its impact on the inner workings of our minds.

 

2. How would you define mental health?
Mental health is an intangible aspect of someone’s wellbeing. I believe it to be as important as our physical health. Our physical health is the window to our inner psychological state. If we become physically ill, we naturally do not feel well emotionally. As such, it is vital to take care of our inner psychological state so that we can glow with radiance and joy.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?
People are open to talking about mental health issues in general. However, when it affects themselves or their loved ones, they tend to deny reality. It is perfectly normal to not feel like ourselves at some points in our lives, given our high stress environments. We are only human after all.

 

4. Why do you enjoy working for Resilienz, and what sets the company apart in your opinion?
The bond we have forged together and our work chemistry at RESILIENZ sets us apart! Get to know us and you will see why!

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
I am a spontaneous individual and I do not have specific hobbies. A game of volleyball, badminton, jogging or family/friends gathering are some of the activities I enjoy. Sometimes, being present in-the-moment and not doing anything can be therapeutic too.

BACKGROUND

I grew up in a supportive family with my parents acting as guides in my life. They taught me the importance of self-reliance and independence. My parents and other life experiences inspired me to pursue counseling studies today.

 

1. Where did your passion begin?

My social experiences showed me how people can radiate love and shine from their hearts after care and concern were expressed to them. This motivated me to seek a career in the mental health industry and an education in counseling.

 

2. How would you define mental health?

The concept of mental health is really important. It goes hand-in-hand with our physical health. Positive mental health ensures our ability to make it through each day and emerging from crises with grace and resilience.

 

3. What do you think about the current mental health scene in Singapore?

The mental health field is still highly stigmatized. However, I do see a lot of room for improvement (e.g., raising awareness, education).

 

4. Why do you enjoy working at RESILIENZ, and what do you think sets the company apart?

RESILIENZ is like my second family. This is where we start and where we continue to work together towards a common goal.

 

5. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I love reading! My favourite genre is Fiction, with paranormal romance being the top of my list.
