Marian is a Clinical Psychologist with a decade’s experience in the mental health arena. In her practice, she does assessment and psychological treatment for a range of mental health conditions with children, adolescents, and adults (see above). She has a specialist interest in working with individuals experiencing psychological and existential distress due to their health conditions and those who face losses in life, be it a significant other, loss of certain roles/functioning, loss of meaning, and loss of self-confidence.

Marian strongly believes that psychological health is intimately linked to physical health and adopts a holistic approach in her treatment. She utilises a range of evidence-based therapy approaches in her sessions depending on patients’ individual needs and goals: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion-focused approaches, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), grief counselling and mindfulness.

Marian has completed the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Foundational Teacher Training, and has trained with Dr Tamara Russell in the delivery of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and facilitated MBCT groups for individuals with Bipolar Disorder. She also completed the MBCT for Cancer Specialist Teacher Training. As Marian witnesses how being self-critical contributes to greater mental, emotional, and physical pain among individuals, she aspires to integrate a compassion-focused approach in her therapy sessions with patients so that one can create a more connected and balanced state of mind and heart that helps to alleviate suffering while enhancing intrapersonal well-being and meaning in life.

Prior to the clinical psychology training, Marian completed her first Masters in Mental Health Studies in the United Kingdom and worked under the National Health Service (NHS). During her clinical psychology training in Australia and Singapore, she initiated a CBT-based mental health paraprofessional training for Foreign Domestic Workers, which was the first of its kind in Singapore. She also previously worked extensively with psychosis patients under the ‘Jockey Club Early Psychosis’ project. Coming from a multicultural background and having worked in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, Australia and Singapore, Marian has substantial experiences working with diverse population groups.
