Dr. Farah Idu Jion
Dr. Farah is a clinical psychologist and clinical neuropsychologist with over 10 years of experience in the field. She has worked with adults with various mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, insomnia and chronic pain, as well as life challenges such as managing role-transitions (e.g. motherhood, empty-nest) and medical conditions (e.g. post-diagnosis coping difficulties, post head injury & accident support).
Having worked in Singapore and Australia, Farah enjoys working with persons from diverse backgrounds. She believes in a person-centred approach to therapy, and respects the individual’s history, cultural and beliefs systems. She believes that effective therapy requires building trust and working collaboratively in the healing journey.
Farah is trained in several treatment modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Schema Focused Therapy.
As a clinical neuropsychologist, Farah has experience in the assessment & management of neurodevelopmental and learning disorders, acquired brain injuries and neurodegenerative disorders of individuals across the lifespan (from ages 6 to 90+). This includes ADHD, dyslexia, brain tumour, cognitive rehabilitation after an acquired brain injury (stroke, traumatic brain injury), dementia, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. In addition, Farah does IQ assessments and mental capacity assessments (e.g. to support applications for Lasting Power of Attorney).
Farah enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience. While at SKH, she provided clinical supervision to staff and students, developed and delivered training workshops to nurses and conducted mental wellness talks for staff.
