She has worked in various settings such as clinical dietetics, food service management, education, and community health services. She has experience working with clients of all ages and conditions. Her experience with dietetics in the clinical setting led her to develop an interest in eating disorders. After working with the Singapore General Hospital’s eating disorder clinic, she decided to pursue her Master’s degree in Psychiatry at Cardiff University in 2009.
Her multi-disciplinary education allows her to approach her clients with methods that vary from traditional dietetics. She collaborates with clients to heal their relationships with food and achieve their goals. As a Health at Every Size® advocate, Yih Shian approaches health and lifestyle issues with a non-judgemental, non-diet mentality. To better serve her clients, she regularly updates herself and seeks certified courses where possible. She has completed training for multiple counselling methods such as Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She is a certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietician (CEDRD). She is the first to achieve the CEDRD status in South East Asia.
