Pablo is studying for a Masters in Psychology at the University of Glasgow, although he has never set foot in the Scottish city as it is taught wholly online. He hopes to train as a clinical psychologist and has had his expectations set for gender dominance in that role by being the only man in the Thrive Family!
As well as being a trained journalist, Pablo has more than ten years’ experience in digital communications and marketing, leading the Goodwood Estate’s (West Sussex, England) digital marketing and social media strategy until coming to Singapore in 2019. Outside of studying and the Thrive Family, Pablo enjoys exploring the hipster coffee shops, hawkers and restaurants of Singapore (and South East Asia) with his wife and 3-year-old daughter.
Honorary Assistant Psychologist
Sarmini has completed her psychology undergraduate degree from the University of East Anglia in the UK. She hopes to pursue her postgraduate studies in Clinical Psychology so that she can become a qualified clinical psychologist in Singapore. Alongside her degree, Sarmini has participated and helped run various events that spread awareness on mental health issues to the community in Singapore and the UK
Besides her interests in mental health, Sarmini is passionate about learning and experiencing new things. This prompted her to learn basic sign language and her current attempts of learning to speak Chinese. She would consider her learning sufficiently complete when she is able to place an order at the Hawker Centre fully in Chinese for her favourite dish: Carrot Cake. Sarmini also has a strong passion for writing short stories and would like to work towards publishing a story one day
Spring did her Masters in Mental Health in Children and Young People (Psychological Approaches) at the University of Edinburgh and obtained her Bachelors in Psychology (Honours) from Nanyang Technological University. She is a registered graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). She has hopes of pursuing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in the near future.
With a passion in working with children and parents, Spring has actively contributed to both the research and early intervention settings. In the past 5 years, she has held numerous research assistant positions and has also worked with vulnerable children in real-life settings. Most recently, Spring worked as a sessional worker at the Edinburgh Young Carers Project providing support for children with early care-giving experiences. Having now returned to Singapore, she is keen on contributing to the local community.
When not caught daydreaming, you can find Spring flowing through her yoga or sipping on a cup of hand brewed coffee. She loves everything nature (except the mosquitoes!) from the breath-taking views of the Scottish Highlands to the greeneries of Bukit Timah Hill.
