New Staff: Dr. Lim Sheng Mian Matthew


Dr. Matthew Lim joined our department in October 2016. He obtained a B.Soc.Sci. (Hons.) degree in psychology in NUS, and later read a doctorate in the Department of Psychiatry at Oxford University with a research focus on gambling-related cognitive distortions. His doctoral clinical training was completed at University College London (UCL) where he practiced Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and systemic-informed therapies. His research on this clinical programme focused on the development and validation of a recovery-based outcome measure for a Vietnamese refugee charity in London.

Matthew has an interest in understanding the development of poor emotion management in the context of early life attachments and culture-dependent beliefs about parenting in Asia. He is also interested in how the over- or under-regulation of emotions can impact on one’s ability to self-reflect and choose helpful coping strategies. Moreover, he would like to explore how these psychological processes could influence mental health, educational and social outcomes in both clinical and community contexts.
