Hi and welcome!

I am Huay Khem and I am here to help you in your healing journey to alleviate your sufferings. My own healing experiences inspired me to help others develop strong interpersonal and coping skills to manage the demands of this taxing society. It required me to summon courage and determination to dive into the field of counselling after having more than 25 years of professional experience in Training profiles.

I hold a Master of Counselling (Advanced) with Swinburne University of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with SIM University. I have received training in various treatment modalities such as EMDR Therapy, Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Family Therapy, Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy, Choice Theory Reality Therapy, Transactional Analysis, 5-PATH Hypnotist, and 7th PATH Self Hypnosis Teacher training.

From my freelance and volunteer counselling work at various non-profit organisations, I have accumulated a wealth of counselling experiences that cover everything from relationship difficulties to mental health issues.

Besides working with couple and family, I also work with individuals who face issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, work stress or relationship challenges and self-growth.

I believe the key to maintaining a strong and healthy mental state and relationship, whether be it in the family unit or society at large, requires both psychotherapy interventions and systematic development of coping skills and personal resources.

Being both, a Counsellor and a Trainer, I posses a unique insight into how people view their issues and am able to successfully help them develop interpersonal skills to cope with their problems effectively.

As a therapist, I embrace all clients with compassion and empathy. My ability to build strong therapeutic alliance and trust with my clients has helped them overcome a range of psychological and emotional issues.

Other than being a conscientious, motivated, and respectful person, I love life and approach people authentically. I always endeavour to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for others, making me a therapist you can feel at ease with.

My Certificate

EMDR Certificate of Completion - Yap Huay Khem


Over three months ago, we met last time, and I wanted to share a praise report with you.
Our sessions this year really changed something in me, and this is also thanks to you!

Thank you so much for being there with me in this challenging phase of my life as my therapist Huay Khem, just want to write this note as a gesture of my appreciation to you for all your help!

I have more than a year of  therapeutic relationship with Huay Khem. She was there for me literally at moments i was tittering on the edges of death. It was with her that i could share my darkest secrets and suicidal ideations. I am proud to have her as my counsellor.

My sessions with Huay Khem have been impactful in so many ways. Every session arms me with new knowledge to grasp and practices to apply that help to improve my well-being and relationships with others. Huay Khem is immensely nurturing and often goes the extra mile to ensure my partner and I are healthy and coping well. She also delivers truthful insights in a compassionate way and offer practical solutions and practices for challenging situations. I’ve learned so much about myself and my relationship throughout my sessions with her. Thank you for your tireless efforts, Huay Khem!

Huay Khem has journeyed with me through my condition and has been extremely supportive and understanding. She has created a safe environment for me to discuss my problems and gives me the space to be who I am without judgement.

Thank you for everything. You have helped me a lot to overcome and manage my troubles last year and achieve all that I wanted to achieve.

Dear Huay Khem, thank you for navigating me and being my north star in my darkest hours. Although we have only met via zoom, I felt immense comfort knowing you are around.

Dear Huay Khem, I really appreciate your help for the past few months. The breathing method is of great help to me, I use it very often to relax myself or whenever I feel anxious. I also learn to see situations from different perspectives and avoid building up those unpleasant emotions that may be harmful to my general wellbeing.

Have been seeing Huay Khem for counselling for multiple sessions now. Was recommended by my sister’s friend. HK is very empathetic and gives really good advice. I feel very comfortable talking to her and being vulnerable. She gives me space to figure out and come to terms with my emotions. She is also very professional and analyses my situations very well. If you are lost, need someone to figure your life out with you, please don’t hesitate to look up Huay Khem. Highly recommended. 5 ✨⭐️🤩
