Methodology and Benefits

I offer holistic workshops for corporations, teachers, students, families, and teams, blending fun, Brain-Compatible Strategies, and relaxation techniques. My revolutionary teaching methods foster inspiring, motivating, and transformative experiences, emphasizing empowerment and the joy of reconnecting with our inner child.

The core focus of my programs is empowerment, and they are designed to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Corporate Training: Equipping employees with practical life tools to foster personal and professional growth, enhancing their skills, and encouraging a positive work environment.
  2. Teachers Workshops: Empowering educators to realize their full potential, challenge limiting beliefs about themselves, their students, or children, and reignite their passion for teaching.
  3. Personal Empowerment Coaching: Assisting individuals in recognizing their greatness and providing them with the tools to overcome self-imposed limitations, promoting personal growth and success.
  4. Team Empowerment Coaching: Nurturing a sense of unity and collaboration within teams, enabling them to thrive collectively and achieve shared goals.

Throughout these sessions, I emphasize the importance of health and wellness, highlighting their role in overall success in school, work, business, and life. My approach aims to elevate consciousness, guiding participants from chaos to clarity and transitioning from survival mode to a state of thriving.

By adopting this methodology, learners can elevate their knowledge, skills, and habits, fostering positive transformation in their lives. The ultimate goal is to empower individuals and groups, facilitating a profound and lasting impact on their journey towards personal fulfilment and professional excellence.

My Defining Moments

My quest to help my child overcome his learning challenges when he was 5 led me to explore a plethora of therapies, techniques and empowering educational pedagogies. These include Applied Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Positive Intelligence, Reiki, Music & Drama, Hypnotherapy, Yoga therapy, Kids Yoga, Life coaching, Enrichment education, and brain-based teaching methodologies.
I saw first-hand how they drastically improved my son’s life and thus began my now 25-year journey to enrich the lives of thousands of children, families, educators, and helping professionals.
Today, I am grateful to see my son confident and resilient. He graduated with a double degree in law and liberal arts at Yale-NUS College and N.U.S. Law in Singapore in May 2021.
Beyond my technical expertise, I have consulted for and starred on Mediacorp Okto’s CLUB M.A.G.I.C., Singapore’s first preschool T.V. program that ran for 75 episodes.In the age of the pandemic, I experienced the positive power of professional networking and Givers Gain – The core principle of BNI chapters worldwide and became the founding president of BNI Venus – the first and only Women’s Entrepreneur Chapter in Singapore, launched in October 2020.
My struggles as a single mother allowed me to find my purpose and make my mess of my message. I aim to create a better world, one child, one family, one institution and one entrepreneur at a time.

Fast forward 2017… His growth is based upon these essential sets of life skills which he shared in this video.
