ABOUT JOE

I offer premium services for parents and young people who have different concerns right at their doorstep with privacy and confidentiality. The key difference in how I work with young people is that I will come to where the youth and family are in because I believe that changes have to happen where they are at ie. their homes, school, peers etc. And I believe in working with the whole family rather than focusing on the individual because, at the end of the day, I will have to exit and let the family and young person take over eventually. With my training in social work, coaching and therapy, I hope to offer a different experience for young people to achieve their personal hopes & dreams.

Today I’m also the Founder & Director of Ark of Hope Pte Ltd (UEN: 201626178K).

My Theory of Change with Clients (adapted from Steve De Shazer)

This is my theory of change of how I work with my clients in general. The approach is largely influenced by the Solution Focused Approach where I believe that we always need to start with where the client is, and we go in to listen in a very intentional manner for specific areas. And after I picked up the different ideas and processed it, I will then zoom in and work with it according to the goals and outcome of what the client and family is working towards. From here, we will then start to build and create solutions and actionable steps together with the client. At all times, these actions and solutions will come from the client rather than prescribed by me which will then lead to ownership and accountability.

Through my years of working with different youths and parents, I have always found this way of working enjoyable for everyone including myself because its respectful and it also acknowledges the client as the true expert of their situations and life.
