Welcome to Safe Haven

Hi, my name is Joyce Ong

 

Joyce is a dynamic, down-to-earth and compassionate clinical psychologist, who brings her years of study and client experience to catalyse meaningful changes in people’s lives. She combines her empathetic nature with her client-centered approach to help clients re-integrate their past, present and future towards a collaboratively set goal.

Joyce is experienced with using different modalities of therapy to cater to her clients’ needs including gold-standard treatment Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. She has previously worked in anxiety-specialist clinics, for adolescents and adults, and co-facilitated a Social Anxiety Group Treatment Program at the Emotional Health Clinic. Joyce is passionate about helping clients overcoming early childhood trauma or trauma-related disorders and have extensive experience with Trauma-informed Care. She has also worked in a sexual health centre with gay men living with HIV+ and is vocal about her support for the LGBTIQ+ communities, with special interest in gender identity.

As an Asian practitioner living in Australia, Joyce is able to relate to cultural diversity and transitional challenges commonly faced by persons of non-Australian background. Joyce enjoys learning about quantum theory, philosophy and spirituality in her own time to understand how they shape our lived experience and their application to psychology such as transpersonal and existential psychotherapy. Her working philosophy is “embracing humanity from within”, which means she sees her role as a helping hand in her client’s journey to resolve their suffering with respect and dignity.

Outside of her professional role, Joyce was also trained as a part-time ZUMBA instructor and enjoys long walks in nature. On quiet evenings, Joyce enjoys flipping through pages of her book collections with a cup of Dilmah Earl Grey tea, or sneaking into a nearby library. She is an avid supporter of women’s rights, animal welfare, arts and Japanese aesthetics. You are likely to spot her lingering around in your local art galleries.
