Eng Choon started her career as a MOE trained school teacher in a secondary school. Having worked for 3 years with adolescents, she gained much insight into the struggles and mental health issues of adolescents. She then embarked on a year of overseas missions outreach to families in Hyderabad, India.

After returning to Singapore, she made a career switch and worked as a rehabilitation counsellor in a mental health setting for two years followed by a family service centre for nine years. Besides counselling and case management, her work in the family service centre involved developing and conducting Marriage Preparation Courses, planning and evaluating the Family Life Program. She is also a certified PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator and a qualified practitioner for the management of family violence cases (Mandatory Counselling Program).

Her experience was further enriched when she worked in the Institute of Mental Health for another nine years as a Senior Medical Social Worker and Family therapist. She worked with patients with a variety of mental health issues like depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and personality disorder. Besides inpatient and outpatient work, she also conducted workshops for patients and families going through grief and loss and training and supervision for junior social workers in counselling and systemic social work practice.

Eng Choon has a keen interest to work with couples with a variety of relational issues and at different stages of their relationship. She has undertaken further training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and Gottman Level 1 and 2 Clinical Training to enhance her skills and expertise in working with couples and she is a registered Social Service Practitioner with the Singapore Association of Social Workers.

Eng Choon can conduct therapy sessions in both English and Mandarin. She believes in providing a safe therapeutic space and working collaboratively with her clients to find healing and create change. She is happily married with two teenage children.
