“I practice wholistic mental health, that is, I help people connect their mental health with physical, relational and spiritual health. In therapy, I use an integrative approach, combining psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems and spiritual frameworks, to help my clients understand the internal and external processes that are affecting them. I believe in listening deeply to my clients’ verbalized and pre-verbalized desires, so we can co-create more life-giving solutions that fit with their inner needs and external context. Learning from my own personal and professional journey, I find great joy in seeing people grow and expand towards greater personal integration and relational satisfaction.” ~ Ng Wai Sheng, Psy.D.

“我对心理健康的理念是帮助个人达到全人健康，包括身体、心灵以及人际关系的健康。我会运用综合性的治疗方式，结合了心理动力、人本主义、认知行为以及家庭系统的精髓，以便能更深层地聆听咨询者的内在需要，协助他们突破自己内在与外在的困境。在生命的旅程里，能够看到自己和别人不断地成长，整合自我，更新与他人的关系，这些都让我特别感动、喜悦！” ~ 吴玮璇博士
