Yeow May is a Clinical Psychologist in Singapore accredited by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
She has clinical experience providing individual and group therapy to persons struggling with Personality Disorders, Mood and Anxiety issues, adjustment, psychosis and trauma related problems, and individuals experiencing stress, interpersonal and familial difficulties, self-harm and existential issues. Over her years of practice, she developed a strong appreciation for the value of utilising dynamic and interpersonal approaches, as these address underlying issues that often manifest as problematic psychological symptoms. Her clinical approach considers each individual’s unique history and draws upon Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, Schema therapy and cognitive-behavioural interventions.
Yeow May believes that psychotherapy is a collaborative and dynamic process that allows for greater self-understanding in navigating distress and difficulties.

She has worked in a variety of clinical and community settings with children (from 8yo), adolescents, adults and older adults (up to 91yo), across public, law enforcement and community settings in Western Australia and Singapore.
