This is a warm welcome message to anyone who wishes to use this forum to carry on discussions and ask questions on the topic of psychology.
It is an exciting event to launch Psychology Matters Asia, or Psych Mat Asia as we like to refer to it, after months of hard work. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this site. It is our earnest hope that Psych Mat Asia becomes a useful information hub for mental health professionals and their clientele in the Asia region.
This portal was created for several reasons. First, there are currently no extensive listing of psychotherapists across Asia that exist online. Such a register of psychotherapists would be extremely useful to those persons seeking psychotherapy for the first time and who are looking for a therapist in their particular city or even a specific locality within that city. To this end, Psych Mat Asia provides a way for psychotherapists to list their names, location and contact details. This makes it possible or potential clients to find a therapist in their locale. In addition, the psychotherapist register available on Psych Mat Asia permits psychotherapists to list their areas of experience; this will help clients find therapists who have experience in their particular problem e.g. adult ADHD, perfectionism etc. There is also a “premium” listing available that provides flexibility to the listed entity on how they would like to reach out to the clients they want to target. This enables clients to find therapists who use a particular kind of treatment that the client prefers e.g. cognitive behavioural treatment for depression.
