Ng Kah Wei, Alicia
(M. Clin Psych)
I have 12 years of clinical experience serving a wide range of clientele in an inpatient, outpatient, and private practice setting. After completing my Masters in Clinical Psychology, I spent 3 years working in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore before returning to Malaysia to be closer with my mother when she was diagnosed with cancer. Currently, I own and manage Growing Space Psychology Center at Bukit Jalil and Seremban though I spend most of my time in Bukit Jalil clinic.
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 chronic pain, depression, anxiety, 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!
