Ng Kah Wei, Alicia

(M. Clin Psych)

I have completed my Bachelor Degree in Psychology in University of North Texas, United States and my Masters in Clinical Psychology in HELP University, Malaysia. Upon completing my postgraduate studies, I spent 3 years working in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore before returning home to Malaysia. Currently, I am in my 13th year of clinical practice.

Throughout my years of practice, I noticed that what is commonly known or seen as depression, anxiety and other emotional difficulties are often symptoms that speaks of a deeper, larger emotional and/or relational pain.

I am a firm believer in creating more authentic relationship- with ourselves and others to have a thriving and more fulfilling life. Hence, in my work with my clients, I aim to inspire them to look beyond their symptoms and focus on helping them to discover and BE with themselves more deeply so that they can be discover and BE with others more authentically.

For me, to live more authentically means that I learn to re-connect, re-member and accept myself (body-mind-soul) more fully, including the unpleasant parts of myself. This lifelong process requires mindful intention, vulnerability, and courage. I hope to do the same with you in therapy.

I have a wide range of interests and clientele that I enjoy working with. They include people with pain, depression, anxiety, identity and existential issues, adjustment difficulties, trauma and relational difficulties. My own personal experience with grief and loss also helped me journey more deeply with individuals and families who are grieving.

I apply an integrative approach, combining systems thinking and humanistic approach with individuals, couples and families that I work with. I enjoy using creative approaches such as expressive arts, LEGO, Sandplay with children and adolescents.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, painting, swimming and a good book!
