Prior to her counselling career, Amanda has worked in the marketing and sales field in various business sectors for almost a decade. Her accumulated people-centric work experiences not only provided her exposure to connect with individuals from various walks of life and also has enabled her to empathize the challenges one would face in different seasons of life. As a counsellor, Amanda has helped clients who have been struggling to cope with issues relating to anxiety, low self-esteem, life transitions and relationship issues.

Amanda is primarily informed in Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFiT). She also draws upon other modalities such as Narrative Therapy, Choice Theory and Reality Therapy (CTRT) and Schema Therapy to support her therapy work. Her predominant framework is based on attachment and developmental theories which leverage on helping one gain insights on relationship dynamics within self & others to inspire change. Through counselling, Amanda has helped her clients be more mindful of themselves and make new choices that empower them to grow holistically - mentally, emotionally and relationally.  She believes that everyone is capable of growth and should never stop growing. In her free time, Amanda loves a morning run followed by a big breakfast, sit and watch the world go by. She appreciates the simple pleasure of spending her downtime watching television drama.

Successful Client Stories

One of Amanda's client was a working adult who had strained relationships with her family. She was initially feeling depressive and hopeless. Through counselling, Amanda helped client became more aware of the root cause of the issues and become more mindful of the factors that contributed to negative consequences on her relationships with others. This personal insight provided direction for her client to cultivate a greater level of self-compassion and autonomy that helped improve her relationship with others and also become happier in life.

Another client is a young adult who struggles with being self-conscious. Amanda provided a safe and non-judgemental space for client to share her inner thoughts and struggles and that has helped client to grow in her confidence. Through counselling, the client has gained awareness of the causes behind her emotional inhibition, become more aware of her unhelpful thinking patterns, and learned how to show empathy and compassionate towards self. In the process, she has gained more self-confidence and is more comfortable with being herself.
