About me


Shanti Rajan

During my time working in the health sector, I have had the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life. Having worked previously in Singapore, I have a deeper global awareness and understanding of other cultures.

Whilst based in Singapore, I worked alongside the local community as well as with the Singapore American Expartriate Community.(SACAC).

My therapeutic approach is non confrontational, non judgmental and consistent with mutual respect.
