|Everyone has needs—the need for survival, freedom, power, fun, love, and belonging. When these important needs are not met, people turn to disruptive and harmful behaviours. For example, when working with self-harming adolescent girls, I hear the issues of loneliness and a need for love and belonging come up again and again. We see the disruptive actions on the outside, but we do not recognize the deeper underlying needs that are basic to all humans.
My journey in people-helping started when I volunteered as a tutor in orphanage homes in the Klang Valley. I quickly realized that the orphans needed a lot of love and attention but unfortunately, they were not getting any. Hence, at the age of 23, I decided to co-found a non-profit organization called AGAPE Vision. This organization empowers youth to be leaders in their community, and through our programme, young people can find and have their need for love and belonging met.
In addition to my non-profit youth outreach work, I was a full-time school counsellor at Sri KDU Primary School from 2011 to 2017, working with children struggling with ADHD, self-harming, eating disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, and stress/trauma. I have come to see that not only do children from orphanages lack adequate love and attention, sometimes, even children and youth from normal families can experience similar deprivation.
With my experience as a volunteer and a professional counsellor, I realized how important it is for married couples to have strong marriages, because strong marriages create healthy families, and healthy families form the bedrock of a healthy society and nation as a whole. I am deeply passionate about empowering families to build strong relationships, especially marital couples.
