Magdalen Cheng, M.A.

Magdalen is the founder of Encompassing Therapy and Counselling in Singapore. Her expertise includes working alongside adults who are going through life transitions and major life events. She is also a final year doctoral trainee at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling (NSPC). Since the beginning, she questioned how a western philosophy like ‘Existentialism’ could be useful in an Asian culture. This eventually led to her research interest in understanding how Singaporean millennials experience authenticity. Today, she aspires to promote existential therapy in Singapore and wishes more people to join her on this journey. On her day offs, you will find Magdalen honing her carpentry and ironmongery crafts as she turns trash to treasures.
