Where to find services?

DISCLAIMER:

VIEWERS OF THIS WEBSITE WHO DECIDE TO SEEK SERVICES OF ANY OF THE SERVICES PROVIDERS LISTED BELOW DO SO AT THEIR OWN RISK.

THE AUTHORS OF THIS WEBSITE ACCEPT NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CONSEQUENCE THAT MAY RESULT FROM VIEWERS’ OWN DECISION TO UTILIZE ANY OF THESE SERVICE PROVIDERS.

ALL OUR RIGHTS ARE EXPRESSLY RESERVED.

In listing the following contacts, we are in no way making any professional recommendations of the quality of services provided by the agencies/people at this moment.

You should do your own research to verify what type of training/credentialing the service provider has. Your best bet is to look for someone with at least a masters-level degree in counseling/psychology and who is a registered licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Malaysia. A person who represents himself or herself to be a professional counselor in Malaysia but who is not licensed is in breach of the Malaysian Counselors’ Act 1998. You have a right to ask for their license number!

While some psychiatrist may have adequate training in therapy, the main focus of their training is on how to treat psychiatrict patients using psychotrophic medication.  In countries where mental health services are more developed, psychiatrist work together with psychologist/

counselors by referring their clients to a psychologist for psychological assessments and a counselor/psychologist/marriage & family therapists for therapy.

Psychological Assessments

As of to date, there is no credentialing board to determine the minimum qualifications of people representing themselves to be “psychologists” in Malaysia. This means that any Jane and John down the road can call himself or herself a psychologist in Malaysia. This is not the same in other parts of the world.

Before you seek any psychological services, please see this powerpoint presentation titled “Some ethical issues faced by Psychologists in Malaysia” here.
