She is an associate faculty member at 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 worked with the government ministry and the family justice 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 work of strengthening the family relationship and conducts workshop and talk on couple relationship and parenting.
She works with many different dynamics: children, couples, parents, families with young children and teenagers, and families going through a divorce. She is particularly interested in helping parents of children with behavioural or emotional issues, children experiencing difficulties during parental divorce, and children who have experienced trauma.
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 a solution to solve their problems as she assists them. Her theoretical approach is systemic, person-centred, solution focus and CBT but also integrates other schools of theories according to the client’s needs and comfort level.
