About Us

The Anchored Space was set up in 2021 in a humble and cozy space. Although we are fairly new as a private practice, our team boasts over a decade of collective experience in this field. 

We are intentional about our compact size to maintain the integrity of a personalised approach in offering our services to you. We are here to make mental health inclusive, accessible, and integrated with our modern experiences

What's in Our Name?

The Space With You

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 realise 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.

Our Team

We understand the importance of finding the right therapist for you. That’s why we invite you to a complimentary pre-trial session. This is an opportunity for you to explore and see if our services align with your needs. There’s absolutely no pressure to commit to further sessions if you don’t feel it’s the a match. We look forward to creating a supportive and nurturing space for your well-being journey.

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 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 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)

◆ Mindfulness

◆ Person-Centre Therapy (PCT)

◆ Schema Therapy (ST)

◆ Somatic Experiencing (SE)

Ms Huang teaches Psychology at Singapore University of Social Sciences with the hope that there will be more well-trained psychologists for Singapore.

Hello, I'm Benedict.
