    For parents and caregivers of children with differences

I specialise in doing art therapy with children and adolescents with the following issues:
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Learning differences
  • Developmental issues and psycho-emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, aggression, bullying, low self-esteem amongst others.

Previous to being an art therapist, I practised in Singapore for six years as an educational therapist.

I found my calling through art therapy in which I am conducting doctoral research in children with autism and sensory integration dysfunction.

I have vast experience, both personal and professional, with children on the autism spectrum.

I am an advocate for children with differences and have participated in conferences and conducted workshops in Singapore, Indonesia and Pakistan in service of my passion to advocate for and destigmatize special needs and mental health issues.

MY WORK

I have authored a book titled Wrapped in Blue documenting my journey about raising my son with autism.
I blog about Mo and his continuing progress.

WHY ART THERAPY?

7 reasons why Art Therapy is an effective therapeutic technique for children.

Art making can tap into emotional content not accessible to words.

It provides an alternative form communication to children who are resistant or unable to talk.

Art making allows the processing of difficult emotions in a safe way.

Artwork can tap into the root of issues that a child may be unaware of.

Art therapy can be fun.

No art making skill is required to do art therapy.

Art Therapy can be done with the child, in a group or with family.
