She draws upon a variety of counselling modalities such as psychodynamic approaches, Narrative therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to understand her clients' needs and help them achieve their goals in a realistic and concrete way. Kingslin believes in emphatic listening, authentic connection, and creating a safe space for her clients as she journeys with them towards finding meaning and healing in their lives. In her free time, Kingslin enjoys cooking and baking, and sharing them with others. She loves reading books with a nice cup of coffee to wind down and relax.

Successful Client Stories

One of Kingslin's clients was a middle aged man who had strained relationships with his family. He wanted to have a better relationship with his wife and children, and also with his parents. Over 20 sessions of counselling, he became more reflective and mindful of his own issues such as anger, and unhealthy coping habits to soothe his emotional pain. Change began with the awareness of the negative consequences on his relationships with others. This personal insight empowered the client be motivated to work on his issues with the support from Kingslin. Gradually, the client invested in spending more time with his family. Towards the last phase of counselling, he has restored his relationships with his family.

Another client that Kingslin had helped was an adolescent girl who was socially isolated and had trouble getting along with peers. Kingslin helped client through the use of art as a form of expressive therapy to help her express herself better. This resulted in her slowly opening up and sharing some of her past trauma that had affected her. After 10 sessions, she is doing better in expressing her emotions to others and is able to better manage her anger. This enabled her to get along better with others.
