Joselyn holds a Master of Social Science in Professional Counselling. She is a registered counsellor, clinical member and clinical supervisor with the Singapore Association of Counselling (SAC). She is also an accredited Positive Parenting Programme trainer, MSF’s Family Life Educator, certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator for couples and a therapist of the Trauma Network for Children by Temasek Care/KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. She is an associate faculty member at the Singapore University of Social Science (SUSS), course developer and lecturer in divorce counselling.
Joselyn has two decades of clinical experience in private, community and school settings. She was involved in the pioneering phase of divorce work in Singapore and works with the government ministry and the family court in providing counselling services and conducting programmes for families in the transition of divorce. She also pioneered a parenting support service that provides counselling and parent education programmes for parents in school communities. She is passionate about upstream mental wellness work and strengthening the family relationship by conducting workshops and talks. She was interviewed by The Straits Times, Channel New Asia and Channel 8 on such topics.
She started her career in the banking industry, and her volunteering experience led her to pursue further study and make a career change. As a volunteer who worked and counselled youth, today she works with many different dynamics: young adults and working professionals going through a career transition, seeking direction or managing work stress, individuals or couples who face relationship issues, facilitating pre-marital couples for marriage preparation, parents who face parenting issues, and families going through a divorce.
Joselyn’s style is empathetic and relational. She adopts a collaborative partnership with her clients and works towards enabling clients’ self-awareness to understand themselves, others, and their struggles. She believes in her clients’ resources and ability to create solutions to their challenges as she assists them. Her theoretical approach is systemic, person-centred, solution focus, Cognitive Behaviour and Schema Therapy but also integrates other schools of theories according to the client’s needs and comfort level.
