Family & Relationship Therapy in Singapore and Asia

Get the support you need to live authentically through your lifespan — from interpersonal relationships to parenting struggles, in-law issues, separations, death, and beyond.

Develop More Fulfilling and Satisfying Relationships With Your Loved Ones.

Conflict and ruptures are normal in any relationship. These breakdowns of communication often happen when you feel lonely, frustrated, overworked, overwhelmed, unappreciated, unheard, or disappointed.

The key to a successful family or romantic relationship is your ability to repair these ruptures and build resilience before they become irreparable.

Navigate the complexities of your relationships with greater ease and understanding.

On the day you were born, your death began its walk. This is the same with your relationships. When you enter into a relationship, it will eventually end.

Whether it ends intentionally through a breakup or a separation or naturally as a child individuates and leaves home or someone passes on. And the final ending is your physical death.

However, not all endings are ugly or bad. In fact, with the proper framing and mindset, endings have the potential to be meaningful, beautiful, and joyful.

Together, we will explore with you YOUR meaning and purpose of your life, gain insight into YOUR values and beliefs, and develop a deeper sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance.

At Encompassing, I provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your deepest concerns and develop new insights and strategies for navigating these relationships.

Create Balance as a New Mom

Raising babies is hard but losing yourself is harder.

For someone who has winged it for a LOT of things —there is nothing quite like the challenge of winging it at motherhood. It’s hard work. The feeding, the healing, the rawness. The sheer overwhelm of all the new.

You catch yourself asking, “Am I the only one to feel like 24hrs is never enough?” Yet… you feel like you can’t function anymore and would do anything to lay down and sleep. What am I doing with my life!?

This is a new phase in your life. A transition into a new role, responsibility, lifestyle, way of being.

Allow Existential Therapy to own your motherhood journey and be the author of the story that you envision for you and your new family. You deserve this. Afterall, you are nurturing the next generation!

Thrive While Parenting an Infant, Child, or Adolescent

Parenting is a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Anger, excitement, disappointment,  joy, sadness … they all seem to show up every day. And, it doesn’t seem like they will go away anytime soon. In fact, you foresee these emotions only coming on stronger and more intense as your child grows older.

As a parent, you hold yourself to high standards and worry that you are failing your kids.

You wonder if all this parenting advice is preventing you from believing yourself to be the good parent that you actually are.

You will always be there to catch your child when they fall.

Allow Existential Therapy to catch YOU when you fall. No one knows you, your child, and your family better than you do. Coming for therapy is not to coach you to be a better parent. Rather, we help you find it within yourself to become the best version of yourself so that you can show up as a parent.

Together, we can explore your parental beliefs, values, and existential concerns — including the purpose of parenting and the challenges of raising a child in an uncertain world.

A Woman in Pose

Existential Therapy can help you:

  • Cultivate authenticity in the different roles you hold
  • Develop self-awareness
  • Feel empowered as parents
  • Become the parent that your child needs — especially when kids are changing so fast

While you support the next generation, let us support you.

Start Your Marriage or Relationship on the Right Foot

Going into a new relationship or sharing the rest of your life with someone can be daunting.

You just want to be practical. At the same time, you want to be genuinely happy in this supposedly new chapter in your life. But something is just gnawing at you.

Deep down, you know the answer but you long for someone to help see this in a different light. Your friends and family say you’re being dramatic. Again. But, there is something that’s not quite right.

Existential Therapy believes that when two people come together, there is often a third party- the relationship itself.

It takes a collaborative effort to make a relationship work. Conflicts are inevitable. It’s whether and how repair happens after a conflict that determines the health of a relationship.

Man and Woman Smiling Together

Existential Therapy can help you with:

  • Fear of vulnerability
  • Fear of commitment
  • Fear of loss of independence
  • Fear of repeating past mistakes
  • Fear of the unknown
  • Learning intimacy

Entering into a new relationship can be scary. You don’t need to do this alone.

Harmoniously Coexist With Your In-Laws

Playing the in-law harmony game is exhausting!

When you marry someone, you marry into their family. Yet, you prefer to say Yes to your partner but No to your in-laws.

Things were good at the beginning. Not anymore. You feel left out- they are suddenly ganging up with the rest of the family and leaving you out of conversations and activities.

What could you possibly have done to get into your in-laws’ bad books?

Family dinners and gatherings are the worst. So much ambivalence to the extent when you think of them, your anxiety kicks in.

You tried changing yourself to fit in but nothing is working. You know you can’t change them as well. You’re stuck and feel like you are losing yourself.

Existential Therapy helps you examine and clarify your own values, beliefs, and assumptions, as well as your relationship with your in-laws. Knowing what you stand for, despite the challenging dynamics, can be empowering in itself.

Snail in hand

Existential Therapy can help you with:

  • Boundary setting
  • Power struggles
  • Communication difficulties
  • Cultural differences
  • Grief and loss

Boundaries are not meant to keep people out of our lives. They exist to establish limits so we can show up for ourselves and others.

Move Past Divorce, Separation, or Infidelity

This is not how you envisioned your relationship would end.

It’s all too depressing and confusing. The things we shared about building a life together just vanished as if they never existed.

Questions are racing through your mind, “What happens to my life from here onwards?” “Why me?” “What if I found this out earlier?”

Existential Therapy believes that any form of separation is a decision that triggers a domino effect in other parts of our lives.

Decisions are never just made in isolation. It triggers a whole set of other decisions which could be life-altering. Separations can trigger a range of emotions, such as sadness, anger, guilt, and fear. These emotions can be intense and overwhelming.

Spiral Mountain Road

Existential Therapy can help you:

  • Closures
  • Exploration of emotions
  • Navigating a new life
  • Finding new meaning

Gracefully Navigate Serious Illness or the Disability of a Loved One

It’s tiring and frustrating being the only one who cares enough.

Everyone around you is living their own lives and you are stuck in this rut without any relief in sight.

Days pass in slow motion. At night, thoughts around ‘ what happens if….’ consumes your rest. You want your life back. But, a life without your loved one is unimaginable.

It is never easy to see our loved ones suffer.

Shock. Uncertainty. Powerless. Caregiver burnout. Existential Therapy believes these are just some of the many emotions that bring us closer to the question of ‘what is our purpose on earth?’

Existential Therapy can help you:

  • Make sense of the situation
  • Balance multiple responsibilities
  • Cope with caregiver burnout
  • Foster communication and connection
  • Find agency and purpose

Take time to care for yourself too, so you can continue to provide the best care possible

Cope With the Loss of a Loved One

How can you continue living when your other half is gone?

You knew his cancer was terminal but never imagined it would end like this. You feel so empty. So lost. Living has stopped and now you only exist. You never got to say goodbye.

You keep thinking he’s going to walk through the door any minute. You cry at random moments when you think of him… in fact, everything reminds you of him and I don’t know how to be okay.

You ask yourself every day, “Will I ever get over missing him?”

Endings in life are inevitable. The final one being our physical death. Yet, the endings that have no closures are probably the toughest to cope with.

Existential Therapy believes endings are a necessary and natural part of the human experience, and that they can be opportunities for growth, transformation, and learning.
