She has over 20 years of extensive professional experience in clinical (health, medical, forensic) and academic settings (universities and professional organisations) in Australia, Singapore, Greece and Cyprus.
Angela has held resident and senior clinical psychologist positions in hospitals and community sectors, as well as operated her own private practices. She has expertise assessing and managing a wide spectrum of psychiatric conditions (e.g., anxiety, depression, eating and personality disorders), psychological issues (e.g., emotion regulation, adjustment to life stressors, weight management), and chronic health illnesses (e.g., cancer, diabetes, cardiac diseases), with evidenced-based interventions for adult inpatient and outpatients, as well as couples, and groups.
Her 10-year academic experience spans across undergraduate and postgraduate psychology and health science students, practicing psychologists, as well as allied health professionals – her last academic position was Associate Professor at the Singapore Institute of Technology.
Angela specializes in cognitive therapies, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT); Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), as well as Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Therapy. She strongly believes that CBT is one of the most effective ways for significant, meaningful, and long-lasting changes in people’s lives.
Her clinical practice philosophy, inspired by the CBT approach, revolves around self-management, self-improvement, resilience and self-actualisation. She is passionate about cultivating behavioural and cognitive change in a collaborative and empathetic manner through an effective therapeutic partnership.
Angela is a firm believer that a collective and collaborative model of healthcare is vital for optimal health outcomes, which is why she enjoys working with multidisciplinary teams.
