Karon is a level 3-trained, certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist in Singapore. IFS is a model of psychotherapy that has been shown to help with trauma, depression, and anxiety. In the course of her work life and as a counsellor, she has helped ex-offenders and their families, as well as adults and youth struggling with issues like self-harm, suicide, abuse, depression, anxiety, work challenges and relational difficulties.
Karon is also trained in the concepts of cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, the stages of change, structural family therapy, trauma, and somatic work.
She completed a qualitative research project as well on the practice of counselling, that uncovered what seasoned counsellors actually do in therapy sessions. Key findings include the counsellors’ experience of therapeutic presence and how they each work in the moment, holding space and intervening in the here-and-now, regardless of the modalities they employ.
