This is the month where we celebrate our country’s 54th birthday. This is a good time for many of us to take a break on the long holiday weekend before continuing with our life marathon.

We have completed our second run of the workshop “Introduction to Art Therapy”. We received positive feedback from workshop participants. Do not worry if you miss this run. We are working with Mrs Vijaya Mohan closely for more run of the workshop in 2020.

The Lion Mind team was delighted and honoured to be invited for corporate lunch talks in July. “The Definitive Guide to Combating Workplace Stress & Burnout” was presented for Richemont Luxury (Singapore) Pte Ltd, and “The Definitive Guide to Combating Impostor Syndrome” for OMD Singapore Pte Ltd. 

We at The Lion Mind have noticed the common misconception for Depression counselling and intervention. Many people are in their wits ends when their loved ones are not receptive to mental health treatment(s). Therefore, in the month of August, we will be rolling out a new workshop – Depression Counselling & Intervention. This is an interesting workshop for members of the public to learn how to help their loved ones who are suffering from Depression.

In addition, I would like to advocate for family members to receive counselling. This enables and empowers family members to learn how to cope with their loved ones who are suffering from Depression. The Lion Mind offers first counselling session free, allowing you to try out our counselling services and start the healing process before committing to subsequent sessions.

Lastly, I would like to announce that the December intake for the workshop “Graduate Certificate in Psychotherapeutic Approaches (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)” is open for registration. This is a useful course for aspiring clinicians (e.g. Psychology degree holder) who wishes to start clinical work in the mental healthcare industry, educators (e.g. Polytechnic lecturers) to help their students, and human resource professionals to learn the necessary intervention skills to help their colleagues. We will be limiting the class size to ensure the best learning outcome for workshop participants.

Wishing everyone a happy August 2019!
