at Singapore General Hospital are dedicated and committed to journeying with
our patients who have come to us to seek help, support and healing in their
lives. We serve patients who present with mental health conditions and also
work alongside other healthcare professionals to deliver
multidisciplinary-informed care for patients who are also struggling with
physical health conditions such as chronic pain, obesity, etc. Our work with
our patients includes providing psychotherapy sessions both in outpatient
clinics and inpatient wards, support & therapy intervention groups, as well
as neuropsychological assessments.
addition to our clinical work with patients, there are also opportunities to be
involved in education and research work. Psychologists could look to
developing skills and experiences in mentoring and supervising junior
colleagues and Psychology students, as well as to pursue research interests
through studies and projects within and beyond the department.
SGH, we believe that mental health is an essential part of one’s life journey.
And therapy is a process through which we could equip our patients with
relevant coping skills and to provide them with a safe & supportive space
as they navigate through this journey and learn (or unlearn) ways to care for
their mental well-being.
me, it has been a privilege to be called to journey with our patients and to
bear witness to their humanity. I am thankful for the patients’ trust and the
support I have received from the organization that have allowed me to continue
doing this work.
