Samantha Ng

Principal Counselling Psychologist & Team Lead

Samantha Ng

Samantha is a Counselling Psychologist who is registered with the Singapore Psychological Society. She has more than 10 years of experience in supporting clients in their mental health journey.

Samantha started as a psychologist at the National University Hospital (Singapore) as part of a multi-disciplinary community mental health team, where she conducted mental health assessments for children and teenagers, and carried out interventions for mood, anxiety, behavioural or social difficulties. Prior to joining Psych Connect, she worked in a multi-disciplinary private practice. After moving to the private sector, she further developed her skills in educational assessments. She has worked with clients of a wide range of nationalities and needs, and has journeyed with them to put in place appropriate interventions and school support.

Samantha is able to do a variety of assessments for conditions such as Autism, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and learning difficulties. She is trained in gold-standard assessment tools that are used to aid diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder, such as the Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised and the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule.

Samantha has been trained to run the Incredible Years Parenting Program, Child Program (Dinosaur School), and Teacher Classroom Management Program. She is also able to administer the Berkeley Puppet Interview (BPI), which uses puppets to assess children's perceptions of themselves, their families, and their school environments.

Samantha’s therapeutic approach is guided mainly by EMDR Therapy Training: Part I and II, Expressive Arts Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Social Thinking. She enjoys working with children and adolescents, and believes that every individual has the potential to progress and thrive.

In 2015, Samantha presented her Master’s thesis at the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology Conference, and spoke on the use of Positive Psychology interventions to improve youths’ body image satisfaction. At the Academic Psychiatry Symposium organized by the National University Hospital’s Department of Psychological Medicine, her team’s research investigated the use of community mental health treatments for children and adolescents with depressive disorders, and won third prize in the Best Poster Competition.

In her free time, Samantha enjoys a game of Scrabble and is involved in rabbit rescue work.
