As a qualified systemic family psychotherapist and social worker, over 20 years Yang Yang has worked with children, adolescents, individual adults, couples and families. He also has provided clinical supervision, group therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and mindfulness practices.
In Singapore, he used to work as a social worker at the macro level, covering social policy and service development for the disability population, and at the micro level, helping incarcerated youths and those beyond parental control with their residential rehabilitation and reintegration back to their families and communities. He also volunteered at Oogachaga as an honorary programme director and counsellor for the LGBTI communities. He subsequently relocated to London and worked as a psychotherapist in various child and adult mental health clinical settings.
