Pamela holds a Master of Arts (Art Therapy) from the LASALLE College of the Arts with an emphasis in mental health. She is also our collaborating therapist, working with children. She is a registered art therapist with The Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA), the professional association for arts therapy in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Pamela also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the National University of Singapore.
Pamela’s experiences in working with people living with long-term mental health illness and youth facing emotional and/or psychological challenges, such as depression, eating disorder, anger issues, self-injurious behavior, suicidal ideation and complex trauma, made her realized the stigmas and prejudices associated with mental health. She believes that listening and bearing witness to each others’ stories through creative expression can be the antidote to fear associated with this journey.
In addition to her professional endeavours, Pamela has also been an active volunteer with a Divorce Support Specialist Agency since 2012. She is privileged to be part of the Big Brother Big Sister program where she has the opportunity to befriend, mentor and provide emotional support for children and adolescents.
Armed with the passion for helping people experience freedom and acceptance through the arts, Pamela hopes to inspire kindness, compassion and genuine empathy to celebrate the diversity of our collective human experience. Every image tells a story, and lives can be changed one image at a time.
