Coming from a single parent family, Elle experienced a stressful and lonely childhood. She obtained the ASEAN scholarship when she was 13 and has been living independently away from her family since, and went on to have a successful marketing career in global companies. Elle fully appreciates the struggles of the career challenges and societal pressure as a young woman firsthand, experiencing imposter syndrome, anxiety and feeling empty while constantly trying to overachieve, impress others, to be liked and accepted.
Her promotion to global marketing manager triggered an emotional downward spiral, which spurred her to explore what is real happiness. After going through many self discovery courses, coaching, yoga, meditation and many more, she discovered 2 things: 1. Authenticity starts with knowing who we are, before knowing what we truly want. 2. Quality relationships is the number one factor towards happiness and success in life. This is validated across multiple positive psychology models.
Since then, she is committed to inspire others to practice courage, vulnerability, authenticity and compassion towards building connections with self, family, marriage and the community.
Known to be curious, intuitive and authentic, Elle has accumulated more than 200 hours of facilitation and coaching experience. She is International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited since 2017. She also holds a professional diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy with trained modalities such as cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focused brief therapy and hypnotherapy from the School of Positive Psychology.
Elle is committed to support youths from at risk family backgrounds and young female leaders to achieve their full potential, and has since volunteered with non-profit organizations like CARE (Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association), YWLC (Young Women Leadership’s Connection), SCWO Star Shelter.
Through her RAW framework, Elle champions:
Through her cognitive, solution and heart-based approach, she helps others be congruent in mind, heart and action, as a result finding their authentic self, overcome the fear barrier and have courage to pursue their dream life.
Elle experienced 7 years of unexplained infertility and after trying an exhaustive list of solutions, she found therapy helpful in processing her emotions, reframing her mindset, unlocking limiting beliefs before her successful round of IVF.
Since then, she believes managing the mindset and emotions are as important as optimising the body, as advised by medical doctors and TCM. She is passionate to spread awareness of the mind-body connection, and how managing stress and anxiety can increase fertility chances by up to 30%.
Elle fully understands women's challenges faced to the mind, emotions and body in the trying to conceive journey, whether it is natural or assisted. She is gentle, empathetic, assuring, being trauma informed and focusing on healing the soul, and advocating self compassion and self acceptance.
