Clinical Support Intern
Kayleen is a Psychology undergraduate student at National University of Singapore (NUS). Her interest in Psychology started when she first learnt about mental illnesses such as depression and eating disorders. Being one who is curious about people’s thoughts, emotions and behaviours, this motivated her to study Psychology in university to increase her understanding.
Kayleen worked as a childcare teacher after her A-Levels, where she discovered her passion for learning about children and helping them. Being interested in fields such as Clinical Psychology and Developmental Psychology, she hopes to learn more about the clinical operations, workshops and therapies during the internship with Thrive.
Kayleen hopes to be able to use what she learnt from school and from Thrive to choose a suitable career path that will enable her to reach out to people around her and the community at large. She hopes that the society we live in will become more aware and open about mental illnesses, and reduce the stigma that people might have about it.
