What is the greatest reward in being a counsellor for the queer community?

The greatest reward in being an ally for the queer community, particularly the gay community, is witnessing individuals embrace their authentic selves and find belonging. Providing a safe space for exploration and empowerment, I see clients thrive in their journey to live authentically, which brings me immense fulfilment.

What is the greatest challenge in being a counsellor for the queer community?

The greatest challenge in being a coach for the queer community, especially when my experience is predominantly with the gay community, is ensuring that I am sufficiently trained and knowledgeable to support all individuals within the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. Each person's experience is unique, and it's essential to understand and address the diverse needs and challenges faced by different queer identities. Therefore, continuous education and learning are crucial to providing effective and inclusive support for all members of the community.

What was your path to becoming a therapist?

My journey to becoming a coach was born from a deep-seated desire to understand human biology and its impact on personal growth. With a Ph.D. in Human Biology, I initially pursued scientific inquiry, seeking to unravel the mysteries of our biological makeup. Alongside academic pursuits, I felt drawn to coaching as a means of supporting individuals on their journeys of self-discovery and empowerment. Formal training and certification honed my coaching skills, enabling me to guide others through life's challenges with empathy and understanding. Engaging in community-building initiatives, such as volunteering with RDA Singapore, further solidified my commitment to service and compassion. This holistic approach, combining scientific knowledge with a passion for helping others, defines my path as a coach, rooted in a deep sense of purpose and service.

What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?

Within the evolving mental health landscape, I am most excited about the increasing recognition and emphasis on holistic well-being. As society becomes more attuned to the interconnectedness of mental, emotional, and physical health, there's a growing movement towards integrative approaches that address the whole person. This shift opens up new possibilities for collaboration among various disciplines and modalities, fostering innovation and inclusivity in mental health care. I'm particularly enthusiastic about the growing acceptance of coaching as a complementary approach to traditional therapy, offering clients a proactive and empowering way to achieve their personal and professional goals. This evolving landscape presents an opportunity for me to contribute to positive change, advocate for holistic approaches, and support individuals in their journey towards greater well-being and fulfilment.

What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?

To continue learning and building competencies as a provider, I actively engage in workshops, talks, and professional development activities through organizations like the International Association of Coaching (IAC) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF), both locally with the Singapore chapter and globally. These platforms provide valuable opportunities to stay updated on industry trends, best practices, and emerging methodologies in coaching. Currently, I am furthering my coaching career with the goal of achieving the highest certification under the IAC, demonstrating my commitment to ongoing growth and excellence in serving my clients.

What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?

If someone is hesitant to try therapy or coaching, I would first acknowledge their apprehension and validate their feelings. Then, I would encourage them to reflect on their goals, values, and aspirations, considering what they hope to achieve through therapy or coaching. Together, we would explore their concerns and any perceived barriers, breaking them down into manageable steps. By fostering a collaborative and empowering environment, I would support them in identifying their strengths and resources, helping them realize that seeking support is a courageous step towards personal growth and well-being. Ultimately, I would remind them that therapy or coaching is a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, where they are in control of their path and have the opportunity to unlock their full potential.

What kind of training have you had in working with the LGBTQ population?

I don't have any special training on this.

What should someone know about working with you?

When working with me, you'll find that I bring a blend of warmth, compassion, and authenticity to our coaching relationship. Having navigated various life transitions and challenges myself, I understand the importance of feeling heard, supported, and understood on your journey towards personal growth and fulfillment. My commitment to coaching stems from a deep-seated passion for helping others uncover their true potential and live authentically. Outside of coaching, you might find me volunteering with kids with disabilities at RDA Singapore, where I find immense joy and fulfillment in making a positive impact in the lives of others. I believe that our coaching journey is not just about achieving goals, but also about fostering a sense of connection, trust, and mutual respect. Together, we'll embark on a transformative journey that honors your unique experiences, strengths, and aspirations, empowering you to create the life you desire.

How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?

My core values of service, communication, respect, and compassion serve as guiding principles in my approach to coaching. I believe in serving others with empathy and understanding, creating a safe and supportive space for open communication. Respect for my clients' experiences and perspectives is paramount, and I strive to cultivate a collaborative relationship built on trust and mutual respect. Compassion drives me to meet my clients where they are, offering support and encouragement as they navigate their journey towards growth. These values inform every aspect of my practice, ensuring that each individual receives personalized care that honours their unique needs and goals.
