Counselling and Self-development Services

Counselling for Adolescents (Ages 10 to 19)

The adolescent years can be a challenging time. Besides developmental transitions such as puberty, adolescents today face challenges and pressure from their home, school and/or work environment, social media, and from themselves. Areas of concern include self-esteem, self-identity, independence, body image, relationship, etc.

To destress and keep in touch with friends, many adolescents today are spending more time online on social media, playing games and watching videos. However, this could hinder their time for studies, sleep and family connection. They might also have difficulty communicating with their parents and parents might not be able to understand their thinking and behaviour.

Left unmanaged, these challenges can cause various effects on adolescents' body and mental health, such as headaches, mood swings, feelings of burnt out or guilt, procrastination, anxiety, depression or suicidal behaviour.

As a counsellor, teacher and mother of three, Janet can relate to the desires and struggles of many adolescents in Singapore. Clients especially appreciate Janet's empathetic listening ear, non-judgmental guidance, and ability to help them understand their issues from a new perspective that facilitates change and growth.

By collaborating to identify and build upon your unique strengths and resources, and equipping you with new skills and strategies, Janet can help you to adapt and thrive in spite of your challenges.

If you are a parent/guardian or an adolescent (below 16 years old) looking for counselling services, please read our FAQs for more information.

Counselling to Relieve Stress, Anxiety and/or Depression

Negative past experiences, prolonged stress and problems from our everyday life can cause us to feel overwhelmed, angry, fearful, isolated, helpless and hopeless.

This can disrupt our daily functioning and affect our livelihood and relationships. As a result, we might avoid situations or people which make us feel uncomfortable or threatened, or perhaps engage in activities to distract ourselves — but this may not be wise or possible all the time. Over time, it can also lead to feelings of loneliness, emptiness, resentment, anxiety, and/or depression.

Instead, working through your issues with Janet can help you to gain new insights into your emotional distress and issues, feel better and calmer, and learn practical life skills to start coping and improving your quality of life.

Counselling to Improve and Strengthen Relationships

Seeking help early from a professional counsellor to work through anger, conflicts, communication and relationship issues can help you to rebuild and create meaningful connections in your life.

Married for more than 20 years and a mother of 3 children herself, Janet has experience counselling clients with issues relating to friendship, parenting, dating, marital disagreements, domestic violence, divorce, and living with elderly parents.

With your overall well-being in mind, Janet can help you to identify and work through your relationship issues, and equipped you with knowledge and skills to move forward with confidence, dignity, hope and purpose.
