Im May has worked as a psychotherapist/counsellor in different settings like child protection and private practices. She is passionate about supporting children, youths and adults who are vulnerable and journeying with them to develop meaningful relationships within themselves and with their loved ones. She values and pays keen attention to her clients’ voices as it is an important aspect of the therapeutic process to be heard and understood. She strives to resource clients with regulation techniques: through the knowledge and awareness to connect meaningfully with their emotional and somatic states.
Im May graduated with a Master’s Degree in Counselling with Monash University. She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and an Advanced Diploma in Special Needs Education. She is an EMDR International Association certified EMDR therapist and a registered counsellor with Singapore Association for Counselling.
While Im May uses EMDR as the primary modality, she is also well-versed with different counselling techniques such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, Expressive Arts, Sand Tray and somatic related modalities. She uses different techniques to attune and assist her clients in their complex and challenging situations.
Im May keenly believes in keeping up with the updated research and effective therapeutic work that can benefit her clients. She has completed her foundation training with NeuroAffective Touch where she supports the integrations of attachment and relational deficits though the therapeutic use of touch and body work. She is presently working towards certification in this healing somatic modality. She has also embarked on a learning journey with Kathy Kain and Stephen Terrell (Somatic Resilience and Regulation) where
she learns different types of touch skills for the healing of developmental trauma.
Over the years, Im May has been supporting with clients (including neurodiverse individuals) who experienced pre/post natal trauma, relational wounds and various types of trauma like physical, emotional, sexual, developmental and complex. She believes resolutely that it is a privilege and honor to be able to journey with her clients.
