Dominic is a registered Clinical Psychologist and approved clinical supervisor with the Singapore Psychological Society.  He has more than 15 years of experience in the helping profession and is passionate about helping individuals who struggle with their own mental health issues or are experiencing a particularly challenging period in their life.  He provides assessment and therapy to adults, children and adolescents, couples, and families on a broad range of issues including but not limited to mood and anxiety difficulties, recovery from trauma, managing chronic pain and diseases, parenting and attachment difficulties, relationship difficulties as well as stress, adjustment, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

Adopting a non-judgemental, client-centric approach, Dominic has been able to support his clients (both males and females) through the healing process.  He also firmly believes in maintaining a safe therapeutic alliance so that clients can learn skills to create positive sustainable changes in their lives.  Working collaboratively with the clients’ medical professionals and families, he draws from his training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Schema Focused Therapy to provide a well-structured, evidence-based therapeutic response suitable for clients’ needs.

 

Dominic is certified and has experience in forensic risk assessment as well as providing treatment for individuals with offending behaviours (e.g., addictions, violence, sexual violence).  Prior to joining the private sector, he was working in the criminal justice sector (for adults and juvenile) as a psychologist.  Dominic is also proficient in administering standardised psychological evaluation (e.g., academic/literacy assessments, adaptive behavioural assessments) to better understand the social, emotional, academic, and behavioural needs of a child. 

 

Moreover, Dominic is qualified to deliver Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD), a structured method of helping groups of people who have gone through traumatic events to process their stressful experiences.  He has also accumulated rich experience in treating people who have been traumatised vicariously in their line of work (e.g., professionals working with child abuse victims).

 

Dominic aspires to positively impact the next generation of psychologists and mental health professionals vis-à-vis his role as an adult educator and clinical supervisor.  He has facilitated several workshops and seminars on topics such as parenting, communication, stress management, and mindfulness practice to fellow professionals and members of public.  Enthusiastic and energetic, he strives to create a safe and conducive environment for learners to enrich their knowledge and to succeed in the real-world application of new skills. Dominic believes that we all learn best when we are engaged in activities and importantly, learning should be an enjoyable process.
