Selina Ding - Child Psychologist Malaysia
Upon completion of my master’s degree in educational psychology, I had worked in educational organisations that own international schools, private schools and kindergartens. I was responsible for program development, teachers training and centre operations. When I met up with parents, teachers and students during school visits, I often offered counseling for them.

My passion for children and adolescents was certainly affirmed. Thus, I decided to do another master’s degree in clinical psychology in order to enrich my clinical knowledge and skills in addressing mental health problems.

I was trained in hospital under strict supervision by medical specialists and allied health professionals. During my internship, I was trained to treat individuals of all ages in the departments of child development, child psychiatry and adult psychiatry.

My special interest has always been in child clinical psychology. I volunteered to offer my services in children learning centres and non-governmental organisations including play centres, orphanages, special needs children centres and homeschools. Whilst doing my master’s degree in clinical psychology, I had attended various congresses, conferences, seminars, and workshops; and I have still been continuing to attend such activities and programs as part of the requirements for Continue Professional Development (CPD).

Upon graduation of my master’s degree in clinical psychology, I worked in Hospital Kuala Lumpur. I continued to upgrade my knowledge and skills in quite a few sub-specialties such as teaching children with dyslexia, play therapy, sand therapy and expressive arts therapy, and modern CBTs.

My work is extensively focused on learning disorders in children and adolescents such as Specific Learning Disorders (e.g. Dyslexia). Due to the nature of my educational and clinical expertise, that it has attracted a large number of caregivers mostly parents who bring their children for assessment and treatment for learning difficulties and academic problems. I have developed my very own in-house Dyslexia Program together with my team of graduates from the psychoeducational background.

Due to co-morbidity of disorders, my areas of expertise have also extended to different kinds of childhood disorders such as Attention Deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), School Refusal, Mood Disorders such as Depression, Anxiety Disorders and Phobias, Trauma- and Stress-related Disorders, Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorders, and other developmental and psychological problems such as low self-esteem, poor social skills, anger problems, shyness and so forth.

My treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and modern CBTs, Behavioural Analysis, Positive Parenting, Social Skills Training, Therapeutic Play Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Mindfulness-related therapies. My therapy with children and adolescents often involves parent work. 

Due to the demands from my clients, my clinical work has extended to adults population including parents, college students and youths who have deficits in different aspects of functioning in life.

I am very keen on helping those who are in needs, especially children since my internship placement of my bachelor degree in psychology in a special educational centre that is managed by a non-governmental organization (NGO). I have experience working with special needs children and I am passionate in seeing them grow and their skills develop. Needless to say, my family members certainly play an important role in giving endless support and encouragement in the pursuant of my Master’s degree.

During my training career at the UKM Medical Centre (PPUKM), was fortunate enough to serve individuals from a diversified cultural socio-economic background and of different age groups, ranging from preschool children to senior citizens. Besides that, I also have experience working in Hospital Kuala Lumpur (i.e., in a governmental setting), as well as in charitable and NGO settings. I had worked with individuals of a wide range of emotional and behavioural challenges such as depression, anxiety, anger, learning difficulty, etc. I treated my clients’ hopes and beliefs with care. These valuable, diversified experiences have allowed me to be proficient in case management especially by providing relevant assessment and psychotherapy. 

I believe that my past professional training and experience in clinical psychology have provided me a strong foundation of pertinent clinical skills. There is no doubt about my affirmed dedication in child clinical psychology. As a mental health professional, I am obliged to be non-judgmental, being an attentive listener and respect my clients’ values and needs. Meanwhile, it is also essential to offer practical and effective recommendations in solving my clients’ problems. Last but not least, working with children is such a rewarding career.
