Q & A

You ask, and we will try our best to provide you with an answer!

Do you have any questions about counseling, psychology, counseling psychology or anything related to the mental health services in Malaysia?

When we first became interested to join the helping profession seven years ago, we had many questions but did not know where to begin my research! Since this is a fairly new and developing profession in the country, there may be Malaysians like us, who are seeking information but do not know where to get go to get this information.

So if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail us at yvonnefmn@gmail.com or chariswyw@gmail.com. Please remember to provide your name and background information. You may however request for us to use a pseudonym.

Note: Our website DOES NOT provide on-line counseling services. We will help you with your counseling-related question and refer you to the appropriate resources. Unfortunately, while we neither endorse nor condone e-counseling, we believe that this is a new and delicate issue which must be addressed specifically with guidelines to ensure that the proper standard of professional counseling is maintained. Our website is also not aimed to set up a forum for people to discuss their problems in life.
