Linda believes in helping clients understand themselves through some psychoeducation, and realising their potential in coping with their difficulties.

Linda employs an individualised systemic approach to meet her client’s needs by implementing evidence-based and integrative programmes. Using principles from cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and mindfulness, she collaborates with clients to empower themselves in their healing journey. Together with a person-centred approach and realism, she provides clinical intervention for issues related to anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, trauma, relationship problems, and life transitions. She works with individuals as the primary clients while also supporting their significant others achieve a good balance in their role as a caregiver. Through a reflective psychotherapeutic process, Linda works with individuals and couples who suffer from psychological and emotional distress by building on their strengths and journeys with them in their healing.
