Clinical Psychologist
Abdul Raouf

Education:

  • Master of Clinical Psychology from the Integrated Psychology Program under Science University Malaysia and Sultan Idris Education University.
  • Bachelor of Psychology from HELP University Malaysia

 

Raouf has accumulated experience working with a wide variety of populations and age groups. While training in the Penang General Hospital, he handled a variety of cases among adults (addiction, grieving, mood disorders, or family problems), including patients admitted in the psychiatric ward. His training was also extended towards children, whereby after being trained in Applied Behavioural Analysis, he became accustomed to treating children with different neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, Autism, or Learning and Intellectual Disability) as well as providing parenting training. Besides that, his past work experiences also extended towards working with marginalized populations and even indigenous populations. Therefore allowing him to bond with a wide variety of different individuals.

While being familiar with various techniques, Raouf’s therapy modality of choice is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He also uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-based techniques for clients with chronic physical pains, grieving or even depression. Although, most sessions are often tailored specifically for the needs of the client.

There is a delay of 7 years between the first onset of symptoms of mental illness, and seeking support from a health-care professional. This delay is largely attributed to a lack of awareness and the stigma that revolves around the illness. Therefore, Raouf’s goal, is to help carve a society, that is inclusive, progressive, rejects discrimination and supports recovery. This can eventually promote the understanding that seeking mental health support, is no different than visiting a doctor for any physical health problems.
