Kimberly T’ng

Prior to Ardelle Psychology, Kimberly worked with several public and private hospitals in Australia and Singapore. She has had experience supporting people struggling with depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, disordered eating and body image challenges, interpersonal challenges, and personality disorders. Kimberly’s approach to therapy focuses on building a safe space where clients can be their authentic self, connecting with their emotional experiences without judgement. To do so effectively, therapy with her often includes a combination of learning new strategies and emotional processing. Safety is also built by being transparent about therapeutic processes. This means coming to a collaborative understanding on why clients are presenting a certain way and the way forward.

What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?

The intersection between technology and therapy is an exciting space to watch! Our younger generation are digital natives. Understanding the impact and the role that technology has on mental health is something I've grown to love researching about!

What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?

I engage in training on a quarterly basis. I also keep up with supervision on a monthly basis.

What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?

You can stop at any time. Many times we are afraid to try because it feels permanent. Therapy isn't. You can start and pause, or change therapists, to your comfort.

How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?

Authenticity and competence are two values I actively seek to bring into therapy. This means being transparent about my scope of practice and areas of vulnerability where relevant. This also means accepting clients as they are in session, and using my competencies to build a safe space collaboratively.
