Sat on the Rocks


Feeling lost? Perhaps you are uncertain about the future of a relationship or at the crossroads in your career. Or maybe you are depressed or anxious. Or just feel something is missing and you are not living the life you were meant to lead. Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times.

You need not be alone. Let me walk with you during the challenging time of your life to overcome whatever life throws at you.  I believe that you have the wisdom and strength not just to survive, but to thrive!

A Journey to Wholeness

I believe every challenge in life poses an opportunity to grow.  


I believe we have the qualities, values and resources within us to overcome these challenges to emerge stronger and wiser.


I believe in drawing from within each individual, these qualities, values and resources, be it courage, wisdom, love, resilience, patience... when I journey with my clients.


I believe discovering and experiencing these divine qualities empower them to manage life issues in the future with confidence.


I believe living out from the divine qualities and the transcendence from our challenges move us closer to wholeness and to freedom.

I believe we are on own journey home, home to who we truly are.

Let​'s go Home together.



From darkness to wholeness

In our life journey, we face emotional, psychological issues relating to relationships in the family, workplace and/or socially and difficult situations. The loss of a loved one can be a painful experience. Unexplainable fears and phobias are frustratingly inhibiting us from living a fulfilling life. Knowing it is not healthy to allow addictions take control of our lives and yet discouraged by the challenge to kick the habit.  The stress in life can take a toll on you.


You are not alone. I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Whether you are going through anxiety and depression, a difficult relationship, or trying to overcome an addiction, I have the tools and professional experience to help you get ahead.


In my therapy sessions, I promote self-awareness and behavioural transformation by using suitable therapeutic techniques and modalities including counselling, Gestalt, and guided meditation to uncover root causes and to gain clarity. In the process, I guide the client to walk out of darkness into light.


It is an understatement to say that it is heart-warming to see the breakthrough of my clients who emerge with peace, passion, strength and clarity. The joy is priceless.  

Until you heal your past, your life patterns and relationships will continue to be the same. It is the faces that change.

What My Clients Are Saying

Peaceful Candle and Flowers

I was going through a season of loss and Kelly helped me gain self awareness and come out of the depression. I felt comfortable and at ease with her psychotherapy approach. 

The immense peace and fulfilling sense of calm I experienced after the session, was wonderful. It gave me strength to cope. I felt calmer – the exercises helped me overcome loss anger and sleep better.

I found balance back in my life and have since returned to full time employment after 5 years. I found it easier to control my emotions especially anger and pride.   I stopped dwelling on my losses. I talked and whined less and rested more."

"My journey with Kelly was empowering and healing. She has helped me untie knots stemming from my childhood. Her sessions were professionally done in confidence. I have tremendously benefited from it and have found peace within myself through this amazing therapy with her"

 Pauline Elijaline Tan

Couple Holding Hands

"Kelly was the one accompanying us on our journey of healing at the beginning of our journey. She was patient and listened well and gave us good tips on how to progress in our healing journey. With her input we were able to continue on this journey, which did take some time. She also looked at each individuals psychological issues to help each to address and heal our own inner wounds and from that work on healing our relationship."

M. & O.G.

Meditation by the sea

After being diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in the polyps in my colon, I tried my best to remain calm. I resisted the idea of surgery and chose to ‘wait and watch’.  Whilst undergoing further tests for the development of the cancer cells, I also searched for alternative treatments. In the midst of my family and friends praying for me, I underwent therapy with you


I believe that it is by the grace of God that you introduced to me hypnotherapy, which complemented my contemplative prayer practice of surrendering and letting go. Your hypnotherapy sessions heightened the subtle awakening of my subconscious and in turn promoted the whole process of healing at my emotional, spiritual and physical levels.


A medical check-up 1month after working with you revealed that the polyps in my colon had miraculously disappeared. I thank God for His grace and mercy to grant me a reprieve and I will gladly recommend such awakenings to anyone.


Thank you for your help, Kelly.

May the Grace of God be with you.
