Janna is currently pursuing her Master's in Guidance and Counselling at James Cook University Singapore. Her passion from counselling stems from her desire to serve the community. Specifically, she aspires to empower people to live more authentically and make more purposeful life choices through counselling.
To find out more about the communities around her, Janna has been actively volunteering. During her seven years of voluntary work, she has learnt from those with Autism, the elderly, children, and those with disabilities. Her experiences made her realise that acceptance and kindness towards others are necessary to develop trusting and meaningful relationships.
Her degree in Psychology provides her with the knowledge of the various mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety disorders. Furthermore, her previous experience as a Therapy Support Specialist allows her to listen to clients with empathy, while being mindful of their concerns. With these skills, Janna strives to serve her clients with professionalism to best address their needs.
Janna adopts a developmental approach towards her clients. She believes in journeying with her clients. She also works within her clients' capabilities, and encourages them to achieve a more integrated self.
She is supervised by the founder and senior clinical psychologist of ImPossible Psychological Services, Haikal.
Janna is currently accepting new clients for therapy.
