expat psychologist/therapist in SG?

Postby sgp123 » Tue, 03 Aug 2010 12:21 pm

Hello, I would like to ask if anybody could please recommend a good psychologist/therapist or psychiatrist with western background (US, EU, AUS), that I can speak to about my bad moods? Private practitioner is ok.

I am looking for an expat practitioner as I feel I could relate to somebody with the same cutural background easier. However if you maybe know any good local practicioner you can recommend, I willing to try him/her as well.

Thank you.

i have quite a few friends who have gone here

SACAC (Singapore American Community Action Council)
located at the American Club (10 Claymore Hill).

** note that it is not just for Americans, they offer a variety of counselling services, definitely try there.

I've used someone called Sheryl Bathman - her practice is called LifeSteps http://www.lifesteps.com.sg. I enjoyed working with her through my problems. She's from Australia

Thank you guys. I appreciate your help very much. Are those professionals more like family and behavior/life style consultants or certified mental health doctors (examiners)? As I mentioned I feel my condition might be more genetic and physiologal/hormonal, rather than just based on some sort of life crisis (as I dont feel I have any). The reason is when I looked at their website, they seem to be offering more of a life based problems solving consultancy, than actual medical conditions solving. In anyway I would like to say thank you again, I appreciate every advice I can get! :)

If you suspect a physiological reason, then I suggest you see a GP first and either get it confirmed or eliminated ... then go from there.

A family member of mine is looking for a good psychologist. Preferably an Expat to decrease the chances of miscommunication.

Does anybody have a good suggestion?
