Daren Liew
Therapist


Daren is also exposed to various fields of psychology,such as developmental psychology, clinical psychology, brain and behaviour,counselling skills and psychophysiology. Daren has a strong passion for growth and direct social interventions and he hopes to apply what he has learnt to help individuals achieve their maximum potential.

In addition to his qualifications, Daren possesses an extensive experience working with children and youths, having conducted individual and group sessions. His experience in counselling has helped his clients confide in him while maintaining absolute confidentiality. Previously, he worked at Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA Community Integration Service), where he worked closely alongside children with special needs. He assisted the psychologist in psychological assessments and worked in a professional panel consisting of social workers, educational psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

Daren has worked hand-in-hand with a client and conducted weekly social interventions and befriending services to aid his client in daily social interactions. When the rapport was built, the client’s parents further requested Daren to tutor their child academically, helping him cope with the demands of mainstream education. He
has also worked with children from different age groups (aged 8-19) and special needs such as Global Developmental Delay, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. .

In his free time, Daren is an avid volunteer, helping out in the community. He possesses strong CCA records, both in leadership and service. He spent three years volunteering with Leo Club, a community service CCA, where he participated in various community projects, one of which (e.g. Pledge of Silence) was featured in the
newspaper. When handling children with autism, he is exposed to token systems used to reinforce positive behaviours. In addition, he liaised and conducted a volunteering session for 10 volunteers and 15 children with autism. He taught these children origami and choreographed a simple music and dance session for them. This gave him
valuable insights to certain behavioural patterns commonly associated with children with ASD. In spite of various common obstacles such as little visible progress, Daren’s community and internship experience has shaped him to be a highly motivated individual who responds readily to the obstacles in order to help each child
achieve their potential.
