JACKIE TAN, M.A., M.Sc., RP, RMFT
REGISTERED PSYCHOTHERAPIST & REGISTERED MARRIAGE/FAMILY THERAPIST
Life is a journey of discovery and constant learning - about the world around us, others, and ourselves. It is a journey of making decisions, setting goals, adjusting to changes, and finding the congruence and contentment within one self. The more we travel on this journey, hopefully, the more peaceful, enlightened and complete we become.
Compassion, empathy and professionalism are the key values I hold in therapy. Holding two Masters Degrees in Science and Clinical Counselling, I am trained and certified in a variety of evidence-based therapy models, such as CBT, Mindfulness, EFT, DBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative, IPT & Psychodynamic. My chief goal is to provide client-centred treatment tailored to your needs in a calm, safe, and supportive environment.
I have enjoyed a career in IT and Business Consulting in my former roles that has provided me with rich exposure to various aspects of life and a deep understanding of people’s experience. It has afforded me a specialized niche in incorporating in-depth knowledge and adaptive application of therapeutic interventions for clients, combining a theoretical/logical knowledge of psychology with an insightful understanding of life.
Some of my core specialties include:
Trauma, Grief & Loss
My core therapy approaches:
CBT, EFT, Mindfulness-based Therapy, Couple Therapy, Attachment-based Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy.
