About

I am a trauma-informed psychotherapist, relationship counsellor, gong therapist, breathwork practitioner that firmly believes in the value of human life. I have experience in a range of areas including marriage/relationship issues, anxiety and stress, trauma, depression, loneliness, family of origin issues, parenting, grief and loss, personal growth and development, special need supports and chronic health related concerns. ​I am warm, caring and insightful. I am here to support your integration, and all of the various parts of your personality and being, into a balanced and joyful whole, made up of body, mind and soul.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, my mission is to meld traditional talk therapy with transformative mindfulness technique by incorporating somatic experiencing trauma healing modality, gong bath meditation, conscious connected breathwork, and animal assisted therapy to help you find hope, clarity, inspiration and empowerment. ​
Through my wealth of life experiences and evidence based psychological therapies, I have a keen interest to empower and compassionately support individuals, couples and families coping with stresses and pressures of life. I have lived experience of the cultural and personal identity issues facing migrant, expatriates and special needs communities.

Sylvia Chen - Individual And Couples Counselling's Groups

Gong Bath Mindfulness Meditation Group

The gong is a supportive tool for the manifestation of our harmonious physical, mental, and emotional being. Just like being mindful of breath, being mindful of sound requires finding a happy balance between vigilance and relaxation. Gong meditation is a unique type of sound practice that involves using therapeutic gong sounds and vibrations to bring about healing. I run group Gong Bath Mindfulness Meditation ( limited to 6 participants) for the community on the first Sunday of each month + private mindfulness meditation for existing counselling clients.
