I'm Bernadette Chin, psychotherapist, clinical hypnotherapist, and nutritionist.
I help individuals and couples master their lives. I believe in your potential to grow, because I have been privileged to see it happen to my clients after they complete their programmes with me.
Working with Me
“I find Bernadette to be knowledgeable in her approach, real and practical in her suggested tools and resources, and very encouraging and approachable as a person."
Therapy is like having a good, deep conversation with a trusted friend who wants to hear all about what you are going through.
But something has to happen at a deeper level in order for you to achieve a breakthrough to feel empowered, resourceful and confident.
Using different techniques of psychotherapy, hypnosis and counselling, I will help you heal and pave a path forward to navigate a brighter tomorrow.
How many sessions it takes to heal depends on you. On average clients commit to about 5-8 sessions to overcome issues which may have affected them for a long time, sometimes months or even years.
Imagine the freedom you enjoy when you achieve a breakthrough after so long!
I understand that different therapy methods are required for different situations and clients' personalities. I am very versatile and intuitive, and will use a combination of approaches to suit my clients' unique needs. My background is in psychotherapy with hypnotherapy as my main therapy technique.
Let me tell you more:
consists of a variety of tools and techniques to work on mental and emotional challenges such as trauma, grief, depression or anxiety.
You will be equipped with skills and strategies to gain awareness and understanding of yourself. When you have clarity, you can choose a change in behaviour. You can decide to act or react.
creates a safe space for your conscious mind to process thoughts and emotions without self-judgement, while assessing your subconscious mind to allow your inner wisdom to suggest alternative solutions to the issues you face.
I believe in working with both the conscious and subconscious mind to attain powerful and lasting change.
"We may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world."
I have a background in Biomedical Science, Holistic Nutrition and Clinical Research.
As a nutritionist, I believe in the therapeutic power of food as the bedrock of health. I marry the best of Western Medical Science with Complementary Healthcare to provide holistic healing.
Moving into psychotherapy further allows me to address the mind,spirit and body for the most beneficial and effective change.
