Misha Singh became a psychologist with the intent of busting a stigma that can hold some people back from seeking help for emotional and mental health challenges.

“Coming from a South Pacific background in which chronic illness is prevalent, a stigma about mental illness remains. If people feel down – anxious or depressed — and they’re told to ‘move past it’, that does nothing to validate how they feel, or help them,” she explains.

“I was moved to seek a holistic approach to assist families understand the mind-body relationship and how mental health directly impacts physical and other forms of wellbeing.”

Misha brings valuable community mental health experiences to her role in Therapy Pro, gained in New Zealand and Australia.

She’s worked with a major Australian mental health service, supporting teenage and young adult clients with physical disability and intellectual disability.

She’s worked for a domestic violence service, supporting women and children manage emotions and behaviours born of trauma.

Misha was worked closely with clients identifying as First Nations.

“My biggest focus is on building rapport so that clients trust me and feel safe. That’s important.”

Misha Singh can conduct psychological assessments, develop behavioural support plans, and deal with presentations including anxiety, stress, depression, grief, and other emotional regulation issues, speaking Hindi or Indo-Fijian if preferred to English.

Misha draws on best practice options for clients in exploring the most effective therapeutic interventions for clients as individuals.
