Soh Yoke Wah
|Areas of Service||
|Profile||My clinical experiences include working with women struggling with individual, marital and family issues at the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM), guiding college students with personal, relational, family and career-related issues at Career Sense and Center For Psychological And Counselling Services (CPCS) at HELP University. I also work with individuals on issues relating to marriage and family at my local church.
I have conducted talks to adults in churches on basic counseling skills, emotion management, dealing with stress, burn-out and etc. I personally believe that emotions play an important and functional role in maintaining the overall psychological well being of every individuals. As such, I have continued to obtain further graduate-level accredited training in Emotion-Focused Therapy for individuals as well as couples in order to work better with clients in assessing, processing and making better sense of their emotional experiences.
I am currently running a Mandarin language center in Subang Jaya. Prior to that, I worked as an Auditor and Marketing Executive for five years. I left the corporate world to pursue my interest in working with children. I worked as a Pre-School Teacher in a local Montessori-oriented kindergarten and a facilitator at Gymboree for another five years. My work with children has given me valuable experiences and insights into the world of children and the educational, social, emotional and behavioral challenges that both children and parents face in today’s modern society.
My theoretical approach in counseling is based mainly on Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy which focuses in helping individuals in raising self-esteem, becoming better choice makers, being responsible for all their feelings, perceptions, expectations, yearnings as well as behaviors and eventually aiming to be more congruent in life. Every therapy session will begin with initial contact and rapport building, followed by assessment and/ or explorations of issues, goal setting, anchoring transformation process, reviewing the session and assigning therapeutic homework activities for practicing and integrating the changes. Each session is aim to be experiential, systemic, positively directional and changed focused.
