Hi, I’m Camellia Wong, co-founder, Registered Psychologist behind InPsychful and member of Singapore Psychological Society.
I’m glad you’re here and exploring how emotional resilience and therapy can work for you.
As a psychologist, I have worked with people going through all types of difficult life transitions. I’m particularly passionate about sensitive issues – domestic violence, sexual identity, crisis, and helping international students and expats adjust to their new environment.
My background as a Forensic Psychologist has allowed me to work with troubled youth and offenders struggling within the Singapore legal system. Over the years I’ve learned that everyone has their side to the story and the ability to transform their situation.
You are no different.
Whatever you are going through can be transformed.
Please don’t struggle alone. We can help.
My Influences and Story
Having grown up in Singapore, I understand what it’s like to succumb to pressure and labels. I was placed in EM3 in primary school and Normal Academic in secondary school. If you grew up outside of Singapore, these groups are for students who do poorly on their early exams. Once you’re in them, people assume you’re going nowhere in life. The undercurrent message is: “You’re a lousy student. You’re stupid and useless”.
Fortunately, I had a kind and devoted teacher who supported both my academic journey and personal endeavours. She taught me to see everyone as an individual, without judgement. By withholding judgement, we allow people to grow beyond our expectations.
When I pursued my Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology in the USA, I saw first-hand how international students struggle to adapt to new cultures and customs, and I began working with people dealing with loneliness and displacement.
Culture shock and expatriation is a common issue, particularly in Singapore where we have a large international and expat community. Paired with our high-pressure society, I believe now more than ever we need to talk about emotional wellness and make psychological services readily available.
