My Defining Moments
Mummy, can you teach my friends what you have taught me?”, suggested my 6-year-old son.
My journey began when I first discovered my son showing signs of learning challenge when he was about 5 years old, back in 1999…
His struggles with letter recognition, reading and writing were painful to witness. More alarming was his gradual decline in self-esteem as a result of his frustration.
Thus began my quest to find a solution to help my son overcome his learning challenge. Beyond the obvious methods and techniques to improve his learning challenge, I found activities such as music & movement and yoga for children tremendously effective in helping my son and I cope with the frustration and tension of these challenges.
However, despite the benefits of music and yoga, the stress of learning together created confrontations in our relationship. As a struggling single mum who would do whatever it takes to help my son, my overwhelming desire to see progress became an unwelcoming pressure on my son. His progress stagnated, and he became discouraged as a result.
It was at this point that I was exploring NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) which gave me a whole new perspective of self-awareness. This greater understanding of human behaviour reshaped my beliefs about learning that totally transforms my own behaviour.
With the new approach, relationship with my son improved almost immediately.
He was more motivated to overcome his learning challenges. He even looked forward to more learning hours with me. He recognised all 26 letters within 30 days, whereby English eventually became one of his favourite subjects.
Moving forward, I went on to integrate multiple modalities from positive psychology, Brain-Compatible Strategies, energy psychology, relaxation, music, movements to other revolutionary & creative teachings.
This integration helps parents, children and educators to work together synergistically in a way that best adapts learning for each individual, empowering them to thrive in the 21st century filled with dynamic changes.
Currently, my son is pursuing a Double Degree in Law and Liberal Arts at The Yale – NUS college, after having graduated from Raffles Institution.
Fast forward 2017… His growth is based upon these essential sets of life skills which he shared in this video.
My love for the work that I do has brought so much joy, meaning and purpose in my life. It has made me a passionate advocate for lifelong learning. This passion has led me to become a certified practitioner in Applied Positive Psychology, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Yoga Therapy and an accredited consultant and trainer for the Goulding Process Sleep Talk for children.
I have been a consultant and host AKA Miss Positive for all three seasons of CLUB M.A.G.I.C, Singapore’s first preschool TV program on Okto channel.
Currently, I am also a trainer for GIG Education Centre – The Teacher Developer for the Certificate of Professional Practice, accredited by London Teacher Training College, UK and a member of The International Association of Counselors and Therapists, a premier association for holistic practitioners.
