Meet the Counsellor

Silvia Wetherell is a Registered Counsellor (SAC) and psychotherapist with specialised training in maternal mental health. The counsellor recently attained the first Certification in Perinatal Mental Health outside of North America, by the leading organisation Postpartum Support International.

 

Currently pursuing a PhD in Applied Psychophysiology, Silvia is introducing innovative ways to promote good mental health using biofeedback interventions.

 

Additionally, Silvia is a Postpartum Support International Coordinator and co-founder of the free support group for mothers, Mindful Mums. 

 

Having been trained in London and with a Masters from Monash University, Silvia practices integratively to help her clients work through pre and postpartum depression and anxiety, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, difficulties with bonding, relationship adjustment, anger management and parenting issues.

Supervision and Registration

To ensure a high standard of counselling Silvia is in regular supervision with a registered professional, attends continuing professional development workshops and is an insured member of the SAC (Singapore Association for Counselling), Professional Member of ACBS (Association for Contextual Behavioural Science) and WAIMH (World Association of Infant Mental Health).
