Bringing Health To The Seniors (Social and Emotional Wellness)


  • The materials and trainer were good. The trainer was very engaging throughout the course.

    Ramya Mukund, 207th Intake
  • Despite being entirely on Zoom, we were able to have lots of discussion and hands-on activities. I also appreciated that my classmates were very open and willing to share.

    Anonymous, 207th Intake
  • Ms Anne Chua is so warm and open. She takes the time to consider each question, and her genuine reactions to each case study in the role play allowed me to see that a counsellor's emotions are important. She also gave constructive feedback to each of us which helped to highlight things we may not have been aware of.
