Nina and Emma set up Thrive Family with a vision to support both the local and the expat communities. The aim is to focus on providing an excellent service for clients, by choosing clinicians that share in their values and expertise. Thrive Family was also set up with an intention to support local communities, and to nurture the provision of good quality psychological care and to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues. To this goal, Thrive Family works with a number of local communities, such as Zenith Medical in Punggol, CPAS, Institute of Mental Health and National University Singapore. Thrive Family also offers clinical supervision, training and hands on psychotherapeutic work within the community.
All the therapists at Thrive Family are motivated to be here by more than for financial reasons. We all have a shared commitment to using evidence based practice in our work. We are all working to become experts in our line of work, and we do this by continually training and educating ourselves. We also work as part of a team, and we are all very supportive of each other and the work we do. We believe this helps us deliver the best service to our clients. We also work to be a hub for connecting mental health professionals all across Singapore. We hold regular meetings, attend conferences and train other professionals. And we practice ethically. If we don’t think we can provide the right services to meet a person’s needs, we’ll refer that person onto someone who can. We pride ourselves in answering every contact we get and helping every one find their way in a complicated mental health system
We adopt an LGBTQ-Friendly approach to our practise.
