MS MICHELLE CHONG


Michelle is a clinical psychologist who received her Master in Clinical Psychology from HELP University. She also obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology (BSc Hons) from the same university.

During her training, Michelle experienced working with a wide variety of populations, including children, teenagers, adults and senior adults. She provides psychological assessments and psychotherapy to individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g. Intellectual Disability etc.), behavioural, emotional and sexuality issues, anxiety (e.g. Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Somatic Symptom Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder etc.), depression, substance abuse and personality disorders (e.g. Borderline Personality Disorder etc.). She also helped families and couples to cope with parenting and relationship issues, as well as school refusal.

Michelle believes that the essence to a meaningful therapy begins with the therapeutic relationship. She conducts group (e.g. couple therapy) and individual therapy by emphasizing on empathy, empowerment and personal strengths. In her practice, she is also inclined to apply Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness to facilitate children and adults who struggle in behavioural and psychological issues.

Michelle is passionate and loves working with children. Prior to her Master program, Michelle experienced working with children at a speech and drama school. She facilitated children in speech enunciation, voice inflection and self-expression through proses, poems and mimes in speech and drama classes.
