We checked the feedback and reviews about these clinics to see how well they handle different cases. This also shows how comfortable clients are when getting help in these respective places.
We are assessing how broad each clinic’s services are as well as its specialization to check how well it can provide help to a variety of patients.
These cases are usually urgent and private. We looked into each clinic’s operating hours and location to assess its availability to clients in need.

Little Marvels Therapy is located in City Gate, which is just a 2-minute walk from the Opp St. John bus stop.
The clinic has over 10 years of experience and is well-known for providing excellent child psychology services. It is also open from Monday to Sunday with relatively long operating hours.
The clients we spoke to commented that the place is a family-focused institution that provides research-based methods for diagnosing clients.
It offers school readiness assessments, diagnostic assessments for learning disorders, and other cognitive assessments.
We highly recommend this place to anyone seeking the best clinic specializing in children’s care.
Little Marvels’ facilities resemble an indoor playground more than a medical establishment. Its slides, swings, and art rooms make it a comfortable and fun place for youngsters to go for therapy.
Through play therapy, children are encouraged to express and regulate emotions to better communicate their feelings to their psychologists.
Moreover, the clinic has a diverse team of skilled professionals who specialize in different mental needs. For instance, it has in-house speech therapists and educational psychologists.
We do want to point out that Little Marvels is very strict on appointments and does not accept walk-in clients. This is to ensure each patient and therapist is given the necessary time they need.

Elephant Therapy & Training is located in 87 Club Street and is only a 2-minute walk from the Opp Sri Mariamman bus stop. It is open all week with significantly long operating hours.
The clinic was first established in 2018, so it is rather new compared to other entries on this list.
Its founder, Dr. Adriana Giotta aims to help Singapore’s workforce and professionals by contributing to the development of the country’s Continuing Professional Development (C.P.D.) program.
The C.P.D. program combines different methodologies for learning, which includes training courses, seminars, workshops, conferences, and events. It helps professionals from all fields to develop learning and lifelong growth.
That being said, we recommend this clinic for professionals seeking personality development services. In fact, it also offers corporate retreats apart from its professional development, and in-depth executive coaching services.
The client we spoke to who was dealing with impostor syndrome commented on Dr. Adriana’s holistic approach. She dug deep into her unhealthy behaviors and thought patterns so that the client may recognize the problematic habits.
However, there are other clients who commented that Dr. Adriana’s sessions can really be emotionally draining. This is due to the direct and personal nature of the sessions, which many find helpful, but also exhausting.
3. The Therapy Room
Services: Therapeutic interventions for adults and children, more
Address: Orchard Shopping Centre, 321 Orchard Rd, #08-01, Singapore 238866
Contact Details: +65 6467 8903

The Therapy Room, is located in Orchard Shopping Centre, which is a 4-minute walk from the Opp Somerset bus stop.
It is open from Monday to Saturday, however, its operating hours are relatively shorter than other clinics on this list.
The clinic’s principal psychologist, Dr. Geraldine Tan, got her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in the U.S.A. and her Masters in Applied Psychology here in Singapore.
Dr. Tan is registered with the Singapore Register of Psychologists. She is also a member of the Crisis Response Network where she has worked with both locals and expats in times of crisis by conducting Critical Incident Stress Management operations.
In these operations, victims are debriefed on the trauma they recently encountered to assess its impact to bring closure to patients.
Because of Dr. Tan’s experience, we recommend this place for people dealing with trauma, whether recent or otherwise.
Dr. Tan has almost 20 years of experience in the field and has worked with plenty of clients with different psychological problems.
She is well known for her psychological techniques and therapeutic interventions for both adults and children.
In our opinion, The Therapy Room is a well-rounded clinic that offers services for both young and old patients. However, some clients have claimed that the reception area is a bit chaotic.
For example, very loud music was played in the reception area while the receptionists were talking loudly with other waiting clients. This may not be a comfortable environment for those who might be dealing with anxiety.
4. Mind What Matters
Services: Psychotherapy, more
Address: 306 Tanglin Road, Phoenix Park, #01-03, Singapore 247973

Mind What Matters is located in Phoenix Park and is a 5-minute walk from the Opp Chatsworth Road bus stop. It also has another branch on Devonshire road.
Its location is the least busy on this list, which helps the total environment because it is not loud from cars or people passing by.
That being said, some clients had issues locating the clinic since it is located in a secluded, less busy area.
Mind What Matters is also open from Monday to Saturday. We particularly like that its operating hours on Saturdays are much longer than most clinics.
The clinic was first established in 2013 and is known to treat psychiatric conditions and neurocognitive disorders such as ADHD and dementia.
It also has a team of more than 10 mental health providers in the Opp Chatsworth Road branch — the largest team on this list.
Mind What Matters’ assessment process comes in 3 parts: an initial interview, assessment sessions, and a feedback session. The length of assessments is quite in-depth, taking around 8 hours.
Because of the length, it may need to be separated into multiple sessions. The final report and feedback usually take about 2 weeks.
We believe this clinic is a great choice for individuals suffering from learning disorders like ADHD or psychiatric conditions such as depression or bipolar disorder.
However, some clients we spoke to had problems contacting the clinic to book appointments and found follow-ups to be inconsistent.
5. Impossible Psychological Services
Services: Adult mental health, art therapy, more
Address: 360a Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427605

Impossible Psychological Services is conveniently located on Joo Chiat Road and is just next to the Marshall Lane bus stop.
Unfortunately, it is closed on weekends and has relatively short operating hours on weekdays. Individuals who are managing a busy work schedule might have problems getting appointments here.
The clinic specializes in providing psychotherapy and couples therapy services. It has a team of psychologists and counselors who are experts in managing child and adult mental health issues, as well as couples counseling.
If you are looking for a place that can offer effective couples therapy, we believe this is your best choice.
We spoke to clients who underwent its couples counseling services and they spoke positively about the clinic’s solution-focused therapy.
They liked the small steps it first takes in making and meeting short-term goals for their relationship.
The process helped the couple work on specific issues and the therapist motivated them to tackle problems together instead of dwelling on them.
However, some individuals we spoke to did not have a great time with a particular psychiatrist. The female client noted that her psychiatrist was very discouraging and even told her that she should not have come to see a psychiatrist for her problems.
We do want to point out that the clinic has then terminated the psychiatrist in question and has reached out to the disgruntled client to explain the situation.
6. A Kind Place
Services: Individual Counselling, Couples counselling, Hypnotherapy, Anxiety Counselling, Counselling for Men, Corporate Wellness, Special Needs Counselling
Address: 63b Temple St, Singapore 058608

A Kind Place is a counseling facility that provides clients with support and aid when it comes to dealing with various mental health issues and concerns such as anxiety, depression, and panic attacks among many others.
We like that they employ an adequately equipped and highly skilled team of professionals that can properly execute each approach tailored to the needs of the patient and their particular concern as well.
Furthermore, we like that their sessions are crafted in a way that is for the comfort and preferences of the client since they can hold it both via online meeting or at their physical facility.
Rates aren’t readily available on their website but clients can easily book their appointment directly on their website for more details and for additional inquiries.
Overall, with their adequately equipped center, accommodating and commendable professional therapists, and versatile range of methodologies and approaches offered, we highly recommend them to clients looking for reliable counseling sessions near the area.
