About Me. I'm a counselling psychologist, specialising in teaching clients skills to manage stress, depression and anxiety. I'm Scottish-Dutch, married to an American, and we live in Malaysia. I work with a multi-cultural client base in South East Asia, the Middle East, Australia and the USA.

Online & Super Private. I hold sessions online via Skype, WhatsApp, Google Meet and Messenger. Video conferencing means we can talk and see each other - but you don't have to travel to come and see me. It's efficient and very discreet.

Formal Education. I have a Bachelors of Science with Honours in Psychology from Stirling University, Scotland and a Masters with Distinction in Counselling from Open University Malaysia. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, the Malaysia Mental Health Organisation and an Associate Member of the Malaysian Psychological Association.

Approach. I am an eclectic practitioner, which means I use various therapy techniques. My favourites include interpersonal psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy.

You Choose. When we talk, I'll suggest a strategy that I think will suit you best. When there are choices of approaches, I will explain the pros and cons of each, and how they work, and you choose which you want to use.

First Chat Is Free. Once you drop me an email, we'll have a very brief conversation to make sure that we can work together. It lasts about 15 minutes and is free. If we click, we schedule sessions.

Cost. Sessions last an hour and cost US$35 via PayPal. If you are living in Malaysia, you get a slight discount and pay RM100 by local bank transfer.

Personal. I am LGBTQ-affirming. I am also an atheist. Normally that doesn't come up in conversation but if you're looking to talk through questions of infidelity, sexuality, gender, divorce, abortion and other life issues without a religious perspective, you may find that information useful.

Contact Me. If you are looking for help, drop me a note, telling me very briefly about the issue you'd like to address and what time zone you are in. Just click here to email ellen.whyte@gmail.com.
