Experience

Upon the completion of her Masters in Clinical Neuropsychology in Australia, Pamela has worked for more than a decade in public healthcare at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Her postgraduate training gave her exposure to conducting assessments across the lifespan. Her career in public healthcare gave her significant experience in hospital administration (through her role as head of department for three years) and clinical education (being the education lead for the department). 

Besides being involved in training of junior psychologists and associate psychologists at the hospital, Pamela was also an external clinical supervisor for the Masters in Clinical Psychology program at the National University of Singapore and has supervised more than a dozen interns. She is a full member of the Singapore Psychological Society (SPS). She is also a full member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and College of Clinical Neuropsychology (CCN).

Pamela last held the position of Principal Psychologist before she left public healthcare in 2023. As part of her clinical work, she has conducted more than a thousand neuropsychological assessments. Reasons for conducting these assessments include assisting the doctor’s diagnosis of neurological and neurodegenerative disorders, advising on cognitive rehabilitation, and conducting capacity assessments for decision making and suitability to return to work after an acquired brain injury.

Pamela also enjoys interacting with and specializes in seeing older adults. Her compassionate and friendly approach keeps them at ease despite the possible trepidation of undergoing an assessment, which is an unfamiliar process to many. She finds it meaningful to use the assessment process and findings to provide diagnostic clarity and more importantly, to provide personalized and targeted recommendations to allow them to maintain their functional independence as long as possible by highlighting their strengths and working around their cognitive weaknesses.

 She has a keen interest in providing cognitive intervention and has contributed to the design and running of the psychological components in multi-disciplinary group intervention programs for patients with early dementia and mild cognitive impairment. 

She was also involved in research work through her collaborations with clinicians at the Institute of Geriatrics and Active Ageing (IGA) and was co-investigator in several research projects leading to several publications in internationally recognised journals.
