Welcome to my page. I am Dominica, many addressed me as "Dom". It is my pleasure to have you with me. I am a psychotherapist by training and offer various forms of psychotherapeutic interventions for persons of different backgrounds and concerns. I enjoy helping people to nurture greater resilience in their day-to-day living. I welcome all who wished to be a better version of themselves and find it helpful to have someone with them in their process of growth. You can learn more about me and the services I provide by browsing through my profile.

  • My initial training was in music and was a music teacher and performer for 7 years prior to making a career switch to counselling and psychotherapy. I started mentoring and counselling since 2013. While pursuing my studies in counselling, I had the opportunities to work with youths and youths-at-risk and their families with abuse and trauma histories.
  • Briefly before I completed my studies in counselling, I joined a private cancer centre and had the chance to work with cancer patients and their families. I was privileged to attend to the needs of cancer patients from all walks of life, namely, tending to their concerns prior to starting their treatment process, providing a listening ear to individuals who find it hard to continue with treatments as well as journeying with palliative oncology patients and their loved ones. In my work with cancer patients, I facilitated regular support programmes and Tension/Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®) sessions to help patients to regulate the stress they got from the disease as well as helping them to live a more embodied life after cancer.
  • Apart from my experience in working with cancer patients, I am a therapist with Family Life Society (FLS), I provide counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals/couples/families from diverse backgrounds in the community. I also assist in facilitating support for general members and leaders of the church about the importance of psycho-emotional and psycho-social health. In addition to that, I also provide counselling support to the Pregnancy Crisis Support service for girls who have unplanned pregnancies and incidents of loss from miscarriages or abortion.
  • Professionally, I’ve graduated with a Master of Social Science in Counselling from Swinburne University of Technology and is a Registered Clinical Member of the Singapore Association for Counselling (SAC). I’ve also attended the EMDR Basic Training (Parts 1 & 2) certified by Parnell Institute for EMDR – an approach which is highly effective for trauma and phobias. I enjoy integrating somatic related approaches in my work through the use of Somatic Experiencing (SE) and TRE. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) as well as a certified TRE provider.
  • My approach to therapy is largely person-centered and trauma-informed but I integrate other therapeutic approaches as well based on needs of those I see. In my course of learning as a practitioner, I enjoyed interweaving somatic work/ body based psychotherapy very much and had benefitted a lot from it personally. I would integrate these approaches as much as I can in my practice so as to allow those who come to me to have a more experiential therapeutic process. As I believe in holding space for the person who come to me and helping them to find healing within themselves.
In my personal time, I enjoy reading very much and would go for a hike to get recharge in the nature. I have 2 pet dogs - Xiao Bai and Kopi; in my free time, I enjoy playing with them too.
  • Here are some of the concerns which I have experience working in:
  • Shock trauma (i.e: accidents, falls, surgeries, etc)
  • Developmental trauma (i.e: abuse, neglect, pre & peri natal, etc)
  • Chronic symptoms from trauma (i.e: IBS, phobias, migraine, etc)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Grief/Loss
  • Existential
  • Sensorimotor dysregulation
  • Health/Chronic illness (i.e: Diabetes, cancer, etc)
