Raymond Tay, EMSc, BBA(Hons)
Org Psychologist & Psychotherapist
For more than a decade, I have been involved in human capital development from youths to professionals. My passion is to uncover humans’ talents and aspirations, and help people to improve their personal and professional lives.
At the beginning, I had coached youths-at-risk during their time-out programmes to develop confidence and certainty in their lives, as well as instilling empathy and other-centredness in student leaders. Besides involving in youth development, I have worked with numerous organisations from both public and private sectors and delivered many tailored evidence-based learning solutions for adult learners in the areas of leadership, creativity & innovation, personality profiling, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution and team building.
After receiving training on hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, I am more empowered to help people and have successfully guided individuals to stop smoking, adopt a healthy lifestyle, build better relationships, increase self-esteem and discipline, etc. Besides being a psychotherapist, I'm also a caregiver to one of my loved ones who has a mental disorder and that experience spurs my passion in this helping profession, as I understand the emotional roller coaster or struggles that one has to go through.
I hold an Executive MSc in Industrial Organizational Psychology and Management of Human Resources from City University of New York and Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) from National University of Singapore. I have also earned a Diploma in Business Process & Systems Engineering (Gold Medal), Advanced Certificate in Training & Assessment (ACTA), Advanced Certificate in Clinical Hypnosis, Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Basic Certificate in Quality & Safety (Healthcare). I'm a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified EQ Practitioner, Change Management Practitioner, Certified Behavioural Consultant, HR Certified Professional and The Student Leadership Challenge Certified Facilitator. I am a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and a former member of Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
