Amber received her Master of Clinical Psychology from Flinders University of South Australia and was awarded the social service scholarship award from the National Council of Social Service in Singapore. Thereafter, she has practiced as a clinical psychologist in community and health care settings.
Amber was among the first psychologists to work with vulnerable adults in the community in Singapore, and later ventured to explore work with adults with developmental disabilities, and provided psychosocial support for oncology patients. Amber works with both with individuals and families, using an eclectic approach with techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Emotion-focused Family Therapy and Systemic Family Therapy.
She believes that mental health plays a big part in influencing the ways people cope with life stressors, and is particularly interested in helping people navigate emotional challenges while coping with physical illness. She is also interested in helping people manage sleep difficulties through non-pharmacological techniques. Amber believes that healing can be lasting through relationships, and has an interest in equipping families with skills, to support their loved ones experiencing emotional and behavioural challenges.
Amber is warm in her approach, and collaborates with her clients to help them move towards their therapeutic goals.
In her free time, Amber enjoys experimenting with cooking and taking time to slowly savour moments with her family.
