25 Places To Get Counselling In Singapore, Including Free Services, Online & Non-English Options

Counselling services in Singapore

Just like physical therapy, counselling is beneficial for anyone who is going through a wide range of issues and simply requires someone to talk to. With our stressful lives in Singapore, finding someone who will give their 100% to hear you out without judgement may be challenging. As such, turning to a professional listening ear is the best solution to upkeep a healthy mindset.

Whether you’re struggling with marriage or are facing pressures in school, here are places to get counselling in Singapore to take care of your mental well-being.

Counselling, therapy & psychiatry – What’s the difference?

To get started, it’s important to note the kinds of therapy provided by different mental health professionals.

Counselling in Singapore is usually provided by a professional trained in psychology and counselling. They’re mostly a one-off visit where counsellors are just there to listen and help you navigate your feelings. The term Therapy is sometimes used interchangeably, but it may also encompass the use of things like art and music to help you destress.

On the other hand, psychotherapy focuses more on your overall recurring issues and highlights the overall patterns in your behaviour, usually spanning longer for a few months. For psychiatry, you can think of it as a band-aid for underlying mental health issues like depression, in which you may sometimes receive medication.
