Counsellor in Training
Counsellor (in-training) working with Adults, Adolescents and Children.
Wendy is currently studying for her Master’s in Counselling through Monash University, Australia. Concurrently, she is studying to become a certified Functional Medicine Health Coach through FMCA and IFM.
She holds a BSc (hons) in Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK and MSc Management and Marketing in Travel, University of Surrey, UK.
Wendy strives to provide a therapeutic approach that is warm and welcoming, creating a compassionate space for clients to express their thoughts, feelings, and challenges.
A strong believer in taking life’s challenges and turning them into an opportunity for growth and learning, Wendy provides an empathetic listening ear and works collaboratively with clients to help them bring about positive change.
Drawing from evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Therapy (PCT), Positive Psychology, and Motivational Interviewing (MI), Wendy adopts a dynamic and solution focused approach to help her clients identify thinking patterns that may have become unhelpful and disruptive and thus limiting.
Background and Experience
Wendy draws upon life experience to compassionately help clients deal with challenges relating to anxiety, stress, grief, trauma, miscarriage, transition and adjustment challenges and issues faced by teens. She also currently runs support-groups for caregivers to children with cancer; a special area of interest borne also from life experience.
Her qualification in Functional Medicine Health Coaching which she is working towards and will be fully qualified by Feb ’24 brings an interesting perspective to Wendy’s practice. There is strong medical evidence that our physical health affects our mental health and vice versa. Wendy advocates a holistic therapeutic approach and can support her clients in discovering healing through mind, body and soul.
Wendy brings to her practice, an invaluable depth of knowledge and experience of the challenges, highs and lows faced by women (and men) in business, having run her own start-up business over the last 20 years.
She has lived in Singapore for the past 17 years, was born in Scotland and spent part of her childhood growing up in Australia.
“It is my aim to be a highly relatable, engaging, and dynamic therapist, championing my clients through positive growth, whilst helping them build their very own ‘toolbox’ of coping strategies”.
