You Deserve Help. I’m Here to Listen.

Padma Jairam

I believe we all need help at some point in our lives, and I would like to spend my life supporting those in their dark moments. As a counselling psychologist and psychotherapist in Singapore, I am grateful for having had the chance to be a helping professional in one way or another so far, and I look forward to the rest of my life spent in service to humanity. I am immensely grateful for the life experiences that have made me the helping professional I am today.

To me, therapy is a collaborative journey where I walk beside my clients, guiding them in making optimal choices in their lives and providing support when they face their darkest moments. I use various modalities like Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Mentalized-Based Treatment (MBT) in my work, depending on what best suits my client’s needs. Amongst the various trainings I have obtained are Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) with Dr Marsha Linehan as well as using CBT in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I am particularly passionate about helping clients who struggle with trauma, personality disorders, sexual behaviours like fetishism and voyeurism, and any other offending behaviours.

If you ever feel that your problem is too minor compared to someone else’s, please know that there is no comparison. We all have problems, and what matters to me as a therapist is that the problem bothers you. Whatever it is that is troubling you needs to be managed so that you can get back to living your life to the fullest.

Besides English, I speak Malay, Tamil, and Bahasa Indonesia. I can also carry simple conversations in Mandarin.
