Ang Wen Fang, M. Clinical Psych
Wen Fang holds a graduate certificate in Masters in Clinical Psychology from HELP University. Her experiences stem from both hospital-based settings and community work, in which she has worked with clients from diverse backgrounds. She works with children, adolescents, adults, and families with a broad range of issues. Some areas of experience are stress, interpersonal relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, phobias, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and developmental disabilities.
Quoting Carl Rogers, the founding father of humanistic psychology, “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Wen Fang’s belief is that acceptance and change come at their own volition and each individual has the capability to grow. She seeks to guide and support the process of self-discovery towards a greater sense of meaning within a safe space. Her hope is to form genuine connections with those whom she works with.
Wen Fang has a penchant for art, food, and travel. As with psychology, travel intrigues her. It evokes opportunities to explore facets of cultures and characters. In her own time, she enjoys arts and crafts and being outdoors in nature.
Evone Phoo, M. Clinical Psych
Having served in the banking industry for five years before making the switch to clinical psychology, Evone takes leaps and chances in life. A life of meaning, that’s what she lives by – oh yeah, and a significant, substantial amount of good coffee.
Evone received her Master of Clinical Psychology from HELP University, Malaysia; and her Bachelor degree in Applied Psychology from Coventry University, UK. Throughout her training and career as a Clinical Psychologist, Evone has practiced in government hospitals, providing psychological services for patients with mental disorders and children with learning difficulties; and has worked with patients suffering from chronic pain. She has also worked as a counselor in a private school, dealing with children and adolescents issues at school.
Currently, Evone is a senior lecturer and the Programme Chair for the Master of Clinical Psychology at HELP University. She is also pursuing her Ph.D at University Malaya. Her area of interest in psychotherapy revolves around grief and loss, trauma, and existential issues.
