Eugenia is an existentialist and an eclectic psychotherapist. Being highly intuitive and knowledgeable she provides guidance specific to your needs. Eugenia is widely regarded as an inspiring Counsellor & Psychotherapist, and a Life Guide & Coach with over 25 years experience in professional and personal growth and development.


Having spent 15 years in the corporate world she brings with her an understanding of the modern stresses and pressure of work. For over three years she was immersed in yogic studies in the Satyananda Academy and ashram in Mangrove Mountain, Australia. Eugenia is both, a yoga and a mindfulness meditation teacher. She is currently pursuing Clinical Hypnosis studies.


Some of her areas of interest include, but are not limited to, helping clients search for meaning and purpose in life, stress, anxiety and depression, anger, obsessive thinking and behaviour, self esteem, relationships, couple and marital issues, addiction and creative blocks.


Through mindfulness meditation she helps clients find their inner power, disidentify themselves with their issues, make sense of the intellectual understanding, and to find an inner state of calmness, peace and stability.


Eugenia is passionate about the transformation of persons with addictions and sits on the Board of Directors of WE CARE Community Services in Singapore, and is dedicated to the process of de-stigmatisation of addictions, aiming to open minds and hearts to addiction recovery.

Eugenia believes that:

  • There is an inherent drive within each one of us to be the best that we can be, and that we have an inbuilt potential to actualise and self-realise.
  • At the core of your being you know who you are and you know what you want.
  • Most of the issues and challenges in life are related to conditions of the human existence, such as choice, the freedom and responsibility to shape one's life, self-determination, isolation and relationships, and the search for meaning and life purpose.
  • A fundamental element in the therapeutic process is the quality of the person-to-person relationship built between Therapist and Client/Patient.
  • The psychotherapeutic systems and well-defined techniques are but tools in the process of change and transformation.
  • The best therapeutic relationships are based on trust, congruency, empathy and unconditional positive regard for the Client/Patient.
