The Anchored Space was set up in 2021 in a humble and cozy space. Although we are fairly new as a private practice, we have been in this field for more than a decade. We are a small team and we intend to stay small because we believe in having a personal touch in our services to you.
What’s in Our Name?
The Anchored Space refers to two spaces.
The Space With Your Therapist
This is the space where your therapist holds you firm and grounded during emotional distress and turbulence. It is the sense of safety we aim to provide so that you feel secure enough to explore your feelings, re-discover who you really are, and re-define how you want to set sail in life.
The Space Within You
With therapy, we hope you begin to realize that there is this space within you. This is a space where you can enter any time and anywhere. This can be done by paying gentle and mindful attention on your breath where it leads you to an inner sense of peace.

Certified Emotion Focused Therapist (EFT)
Hello! I’m Ms Huang.
My name is Zhang Jin. It’s hard to pronounce? Call me Ms Huang or ZJ (“zee jay”)! I have been working as a psychologist for more than 18 years and I love how Psychology has helped and is still helping me with my own emotional trauma. It is because of Psychology that I get to build a fulfilling relationship with myself, with the people I love, and experience a meaningful career. I am excited to help you uncover your psychological profile the way I have been uncovering for myself.

Ms Huang is one of the first and few certified Emotion Focused Therapists (EFT) in Singapore. She is also proficient in the following therapeutic approaches:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Eye Movement and Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
- Person-Centre Therapy (PCT)
- Schema Therapy (ST)
- Somatic Experiencing (SE)
Ms Huang served as a psychologist across various settings (prisons, hospital, community) before she sets up her own private practice.
With Singapore Prison Service, she worked with inmates on various issues (e.g., domestic violence, sexual violence) and personality disorders. She also provided suicide intervention training for prison officers.
In the hospital setting, Ms Huang worked with patients with various mental health difficulties (e.g., depression, anxiety, OCD). She was also the pioneer psychologist who set up psychological services for palliative patients and their loved ones to address end-of-life issues.
Passionate about serving the community, Ms Huang was the first senior clinical psychologist in Singapore to work directly with vulnerable adults when the Vulnerable Adults Act was passed in 2018. Her work involved helping those who have experienced trauma as a result of neglect and abuse.
Ms Huang teaches Psychology at Singapore University of Social Sciences with the hope that there will be more well-trained psychologists for Singapore.
