Foo Xiang Yi, Jessie

(M. Clin Psych)

Ms Foo Xiang Yi or better known as Jessie is a senior clinical psychologist at Growing Space KL. She received her master’s degree in clinical psychology from HELP University, Malaysia. Her clinical experience consists of working with children, teenagers and adults in outpatient private practice centres and Sunway Medical Centre.

Jessie has been in the mental health practice for 10 years. The more she journeys alongside her clients, the more she appreciates the complexity of human experiences. Currently, Jessie works exclusively with individual adults. She focuses on connecting with her clients as they delicately unfold their life stories. She seeks to understand her clients in relationship with others in the clients’ lives, sit with their pain, and walk with them through challenges and growths.

After starting a family of her own, Jessie is especially interested in how family shapes one’s worldview and determines how one relates to others. She sees the value in noticing the relationship and emotional patterns in one’s family of origin so that one can live a richer, more deeply connected life.
