passport photo.jpgAbout Me

My name is Andy Sim Shiang Hann. Hann (瀚) is the last character of my Chinese name which means vast and boundless. As a counsellor and psychotherapist, my purpose is to help individuals find their path and lead a fulfilling life.

I’m an experienced professional who offers counselling and psychotherapy services. Whether it’s your career, your relationships and lifestyle, I’ll help you develop the habits and skills, gain insights and awareness to effectively deal with the challenges and emotional moments you may encounter in life.

I embrace the principles of person-centred theory by being non-judgmental, accepting (unconditional positive regard) and having an empathic understanding. In my sessions, I assist and guide clients to gain insights and awareness of their issues. I often view myself as a companion with my clients on their journey through difficult times. 

I am currently an associate member of the Singapore Psychological Society (SPS) and a provisional clinical member of the Singapore Association for Counselling (SAC).
