  • A story of perseverance, healing and triumph

When one is diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder, Dysthymia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), & Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), a great deal of strength is required to persevere - it was no different in Nurul Amira’s case.

As she recalls being an introverted and isolated student, she shares with us her struggles in completing her Bachelor in Psychology with Communication with the conditions she was diagnosed with.

“I was stuck, my mind was cloudy. Mental illness is real- the pain is as real as physical pain. The journey of curing myself continued as I decided to pursue my Master’s Degree in London, United Kingdom. I flew there and lived there alone. I read books and articles for more than 6 hours every day while feeling anxious, sometimes shivering and crying. After years of serious learning and hustling, with gratitude, I am now mentally healthy and a qualified psychologist.”

Amira graduated with Master of Science in Psychology, in London. She currently owns a psychology centre called the ‘VE Psyche Development’ located in Solaris Publika, Kuala Lumpur- the letter ‘V’ and ‘E’ in the name stands for Virtuous and Excellent, while ‘Psyche’ means human mind and soul.

“My company has a tagline “be the best version of you”. Years from now, I hope to see Malaysians having first class mentality; this includes having a strong and positive mindset, and being highly aware of mental health issues. It is my part to play as a psychologist to spread knowledge and raise awareness regarding human psychological issues.”

Some of the efforts made at VE Psyche Development to engage better with people include workshops on Psychology knowledge (e.g. Law of Universe, Human Behavior and Development, etc.), motivational talks (e.g. how to control your emotions effectively, how to cope with stress, etc., personal/ couple/ group cconsultation & psychotherapy (e.g. hypnotherapy, etc.) and personal/ couple/ group coaching with certificate (especially for fresh graduates and those who work in the psychology field to gain knowledge and skills.)

“The first line psychologists in my company are experts and they have more than 10 years’ experience. I believe my company is capable in helping our society to overcome their psychological issue and may also contribute to the development of Psychology field in Malaysia.”

“The project that I am most excited about is our workshop called “The Secret of Attracting Miracle” – How the collaboration of Science & Islamic Psychology can attract miracles into your life. The speakers are myself, and Master Roslina Hussian (an expert in the field of Psychology, Da’wah and Leadership with more than 10 years’ experience). This workshop elaborates on the Law of Attraction (LOA), sub-conscious mind, and success.”

“Joining the Global Campus programme in London opened my eyes as I got to experience and learn a lot about British culture, society, language, economy, art and food. I fell in love with London and decided to continue my studies there. I would like to thank Limkokwing University for giving me the opportunity experience London. It was one of the best experiences of my life!”

Amira explained that majority of Malaysians are still not aware of the importance of Psychology field, as this field can be considered new in Malaysia and not as developed as in other first-world countries yet.

“My company provides high quality psychological services conducted by qualified and trained psychologists, in order to achieve effectiveness. My Psychology Centre is also a company that provides training for those who work in the Psychology field. Being a catalyst to the development of Psychology field in Malaysia is one of my main aims.”

Consultation and psychotherapy services at VE Psyche Development are tailor-made with certain techniques curated based on clients’ individual needs and condition that are most suitable for them.

“This journey is the best thing that has ever happened to me - it made me who I am today. Now I have a bigger mission; to help those who are suffering with their psychological issues. I know how it feels, I understand, and I am here to help. I am ready for my next journey as a psychologist.”
