Sylvia Tan

Counselling Psychologist

Sylvia is a registered Counselling Psychologist and Clinical Supervisor with the Singapore Register of Psychologists. She earned her Master of Psychology (Counselling) degree from Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia in 2002. After graduation, she worked in Australia for many years before relocating back to Singapore in 2014.

In all, Sylvia has 17 years of clinical experience working as a psychologist in outpatient psychiatric clinics, community and government agencies both in Australia and Singapore. She has seen adults, adolescents and children with mental health difficulties such as depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, trauma, complex trauma, psychosis or personality difficulties. She has also worked with couples and families undergoing martial difficulties, divorce and separation.

Over the past 10 years, Sylvia has developed expertise in the area of couples and family work, in particular, with divorce and separation. Sylvia previously worked in the Singapore Family Justice Courts as the Principal Court Family Specialist, and is now working part time in the Community Psychology Hub where she supervises psychologists working in the Divorce Specialist Support Agencies (DSSAs). Sylvia has extensive skills in custody evaluation, dispute resolution, couples therapy, and family reunification work where there have been allegations of family violence, child abuse, or parental alienation. She has conducted trainings locally and internationally on divorce-related matters such as impact of divorce on children, child inclusive dispute resolution and parental alienation. Sylvia has also co-authored papers on divorce and the Singapore Family Justice System.

To Sylvia, mental health issues can be traced back to negative early life experiences or relationship breakdowns. Hence, much of her therapeutic approach deals with early negative childhood experiences, so as to enable deep healing, restoration of self and relationships. She mostly uses "third wave" psychotherapeutic approaches such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy and Hakomi Experiential Psychotherapy in her work with clients.

In terms of her work with families, Sylvia believes in the preservation of family relationships. She also believes that every child has the right to be free from family conflict, and have healthy relationships with both parents. Hence, she has made it her mission to help children and families how to cope with divorce, heal from family conflict, and restore relationships with each other, so that they can thrive in their mental wellbeing, and lead rich and meaningful lives.
