Pawsibility is a counselling practice providing counselling, psychotherapy, and psychological assessments for both children and adults. Beyond diagnosis and intervention, we run preventive workshops that equip individuals with a positive mindset, emotional resilience, self-confidence, social skills etc.
What differentiates us is our specialization in Animal Assisted Therapy and Animal Assisted Play Therapy. Pawsibility is the first and only counselling and psychotherapy practice in Singapore that incorporates the use of Therapy Dogs in our sessions. Clients now have the option of experiencing the power of the human-animal bond in our counselling and psychotherapy sessions, led by our counsellor/psychologist together with the assistance of a professionally trained Therapy Dog.
Making an impact in the lives of our clients drives the work that we do. Empowering clients with a better approach is what motivates us.

Maureen believes that animals have a special ability to reach out to people and add a different dimension to the therapeutic experience.
Maureen Huang returned from the United States to introduce Animal Assisted Therapy to the field of counselling in Singapore. She obtained her Master's Degree in this field of specialization at the world's leading University recognized for its research and applied work in Animal Assisted Therapy. Having graduated with a MSW from the University of Denver, Maureen specialises in clinical work with families, with a focus on animal-assisted interventions. While in graduate school, she received the PJ/Hart Loving Bond Award in recognition of her accomplishments in the study of human-animal interactions. She was also trained at the International Institute for Animal Assisted Play Therapy.
Maureen's approachable demeanor puts clients at ease, and many of her clients find it much easier to share openly. The encouraging feedback she receives from both children and adults is testimony to her expertise. Many that had previously found it difficult to speak to other Counsellors or Psychologists would often be surprised at how they could naturally open up to her.
Maureen’s plethora of experience in the field includes therapeutic horse-riding, equine-assisted learning, and canine assisted interventions. She has also worked extensively with individuals, families, and groups in the United States and Singapore.
