We Would Like to Invite You to Self-Care with EMCC

As frontline Helping Professionals in Public Healthcare or Social Service, we are no strangers to stress, anxiety or feeling burdened as we meet the needs of our clients/patients. 

The nature of our work puts us at risk of compassion fatigue which can lead to a decline in our mental health. We may experience less passion for what we do and a significant drop in motivation. Over time, we feel physically and emotionally exhausted while trying to navigate the myriad of tasks and clients/patients we are responsible for. 

We may also be facing challenges in our personal lives that affect us mentally and emotionally, adding to the stress we experience. Finding a safe space to process our experience, thoughts and emotions can be hard to come by. It is with this understanding that EMCC was motivated to do something for our fellow helping professionals.

Our Care-to-Care Programme seeks to provide a safe space for our fellow Helping Professionals to tap on for emotional support. 

The Care-to-Care Programme provides five counselling sessions at a special rate:

Gross monthly salary Care-to-Care Programme Full individual counselling fee
$3,500 and below $60 per hour $160 per hour
Above $3,500 to $6,000 $80 per hour $160 per hour

Rest assured there is complete confidentiality. No reporting will be made to your organisation.

Don’t wait until you are experiencing burnout before seeking help. If you think you have already reached burnout stage, it is also not too late to reach out for help.

You deserve support just like your clients/patients do.

To enjoy the special rates, you will need to provide:

  • A copy of your staff pass/name card to show that you are working either in a restructured hospital under Ministry of Health (MOH) or member organisation of National Council for Social Service (NCSS)
