Having served in the banking industry for five years before making the switch to clinical psychology, Evone takes leaps and chances in life. A life of meaning, that’s what she lives by – oh yeah, and a significant, substantial amount of good coffee.
Evone received her Master of Clinical Psychology from HELP University, Malaysia; and her Bachelor degree in Applied Psychology from Coventry University, UK. Throughout her training and career as a Clinical Psychologist, Evone has practiced in government hospitals, providing psychological services for patients with mental disorders and children with learning difficulties; and has worked with patients suffering from chronic pain. She has also worked as a counselor in a private school, dealing with children and adolescents issues at school.
Currently, Evone is working closely with a psychiatrist in providing psychotherapy to clients with mental disorders (e.g. Depression, OCD, and Schizophrenia), marriage/relationship problems, as well as clients going through crisis in life. Evone is also a lecturer at HELP University and supervisor for the Clinical Psychologist trainees.
Psychotherapy with Evone would usually involve a series of self-exploration and analysis through integrative approaches, to bring upon deeper self-awareness. Evone believes that psychotherapy is a journey where two human beings face together the unavoidable human conditions and givens in life. It is not merely about treating mental illnesses, or getting rid of problems. It is a journey that transcends one towards a more conscious, authentic way of life.
“Hope” is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. - Rabindranath Tagore
