Quality Online Counselling in Singapore
Finding the right Therapist. We understand that finding a good Therapist (ie professional counsellor or psychologist) can be a daunting process, especially since Singapore has no specific regulatory regime governing mental health professionals. We often discuss greatly personal details with our Therapist as we seek to dissect, unravel and analyse life’s challenges and deal with them head on. As such, at TYHO, we aim to ensure that you can count on us to find exceptional mental health professionals for you.
What to expect at TYHO. All our Therapists are Singapore based or Singaporean. They not only have the right qualifications (min. Master’s degree) and professional training, but are also aligned with TYHO values. These include being empathetic, non-judgmental and sensitive to diverse backgrounds and viewpoints. Each of them is deeply committed to providing their clients with effective therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are countless types of therapy. The term “therapist” is widely-used, and hence, people often wonder what is meant by occupational therapy, speech therapy, massage therapy, and physiotherapy. The list goes on.
Mental health therapy is also generally known as counselling or psychotherapy. In the context of emotional difficulties, therapy is a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space. Individuals may share their struggles and work towards a goal with a trained professional.
When looking for a therapist, you might find the terms “therapist”, “counsellor”, and “psychotherapist” used interchangeably. What is most important is trust. Look for a therapist you can trust. This is because the relationship you have with your therapist will be a key factor affecting the outcome of therapy.
Psychiatrist: Diagnoses mental health conditions and can prescribe medication.
Clinical Psychologist: Diagnoses mental health conditions, and manages more serious mental health disorders non-medicinally in the long-term.
Professional Counsellor: Uses integrative therapies to help people work through personal and emotional issues.
Social Worker: Works with and advocates for individuals and families, and liaises with various parties in the community on behalf of client.
Online counselling is the provision of counselling services by a qualified therapist (counsellor or psychologist) through online mediums (eg audio, video conferencing or text-based live chats). It allows for greater convenience, accessibility, and flexibility for both clients and therapists as they save on travel time. All you need is a stable internet connection, and a personal computer or mobile device!
The cost of counselling in Singapore can vary significantly, depending on where you go (public sector organisation or private practice) and type of mental health professional you chose to see (ie psychologists, professional counsellor or social worker). It can also depend on the mode of counselling, whether it is in-person, or done via audio, video, or text-based live chat. Typically, a counselling session in Singapore can cost anywhere between S$50-300 per hour.

Our Therapists include professional counsellors and psychologists. Professional counsellors are highly skilled in applying integrative therapies to assist people in working through their personal and emotional issues. Psychologists use evidence-based strategies to diagnose and manage more serious mental health illnesses and disorders non-medicinally over the long-term.
In most situations, which type of professional you consult is not critically important. This is because there is considerable overlap among them with respect to the training they have received, types of problems they help with, and the approaches they use. All are competent to recognise and help with the more common mental health issues, whether it is mild to moderate forms of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or addictions.
Psychologists and professional counsellors (collectively called Therapists on our platform) are all trained in providing talk therapy that would help a client improve their mental health and wellbeing.
