Over the years, EMCC has journeyed with thousands of adults, children and families. Learn more about their experiences from these testimonies in their own words. And find out how you can also help someone overcome their mental health challenges.
Since 1997, EMCC has helped thousands of individuals and families. Here are testimonies from just a few of those we have helped:
“EMCC has helped me make a breakthrough in my difficult relationship with my parents. I was on the verge of cutting ties with them, but after many sessions of processing things with EMCC, I managed to muster the courage to set some much-needed boundaries. This has allowed me to connect and share with my parents once again.” – C, 20s
“Counselling helped me to look out of the box and I began to see there were many ways on the outside. Step by step, I learnt about my own ways of self-sabotage and began to embrace my own empowerment.” – “Cheng”, 50s
“This is my first counselling experience and I am very grateful to my counsellor, Dawn. I felt very safe when I shared my issues and challenges with her. I gained a lot of insight about myself and the issues, and I would definitely recommend those who are hesitant about counselling to give it a shot! It’s not as scary as you think!” – Jenny, 28
“I think this was one of the biggest takeaways from my sessions with Sanny, to stop and reflect on how much of what I perceive of myself is grounded in reality, or if I was being overly self-critical.” – “Adam”, 30s
“At some juncture in our lives, we will face issues which even friends and family with their best intentions cannot help you resolve. Working hand-in-hand with a professional counsellor helps you find and open that little door in your mind which helps you see things very clearly. Counselling has helped me to become kinder to myself. Going forward, I want to continue to raise my self-awareness and be able to find peace and happiness one morsel at a time.” – “Connor”, 60s
“The session has created in me more awareness of the stress I am experiencing. It has made me more determined to take action to help take concrete steps to a better mental and physical well-being.” – Participant, EMCC Training on Burnout
How you can help
EMCC is marking 25 years of service to the Singapore community this year. If you have been moved by any of the messages above, please consider donating to our Jubilee Appeal. All donations to this appeal are eligible for 2.5 times tax deduction.
- $500 helps pay for 5 counselling sessions for a mother suffering from depression
- $1,000 helps pay for 5 family counselling sessions to help a family learn skills and coping strategies to support their teenage son/brother who is suicidal
Your donations will enable individuals and families from lower-income households to get the mental health support they need. We provide subsidies to over 80% of our clients. The income from subsidised fees is insufficient to cover our costs of running the centre. Donations therefore also help cover the costs of maintaining the counselling rooms and training facilities.
Every dollar you donate to this appeal will be matched by the government. But for EMCC to receive the government portion, we first need to receive your donation. Thank you very much for your generosity.
