Reshie began his professional career as a doctor, earning his medical degree from the University of Sheffield in the UK. He has since left medical practice, fully retrained as a psychotherapist with an MSc from Kings College London in Psychology and the Neuroscience of Mental Health, and now practices exclusively as a counselling professional.
As a trained EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy), PE (Prolonged Exposure) and CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) practitioner, Reshie works in private practice as a clinical practitioner specialising in the treatment of complex psychological trauma, attachment trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, addictions and other disorders of extreme stress. He favours a treatment approach that is heavily neuroscientific. To this end, he has written his own treatment manuals for both trauma and addiction treatment using a treatment system that relies on the latest and most up-to-date research.
Reshie's work experience in this field began within the criminal justice system in Singapore, as part of the prison psychiatric team, treating individuals with a wide range of serious psychiatric illnesses and severe personality and behavioural disorders.
More recently, he has spent time working in the private sector with The Cabin Addiction Services Group as a substance abuse and trauma therapist at Asia’s largest inpatient rehabilitation centre in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In 2015, he went on to set up The Cabins’ outpatient facility in Singapore as Head Counsellor, which included setting up and running the only fully dedicated intensive outpatient program for psychological trauma in Singapore at the time. In 2017, he moved to Bali, Indonesia, where he helped to set up Calm Rehab Bali as clinical director - creating, writing and launching the only trauma-focused inpatient addiction treatment facility in Asia.
Reshie's experience in the field of addiction and psychological trauma also extends to teaching and lecturing on addiction medicine and trauma-related subjects. He has been a frequent guest at numerous conferences, podcasts, webinars and university seminars, and speaks on a wide variety of mental health issues, in addition to his primary specialty - trauma.
