Anyway, as mentioned several times, the counselling clinic and a mental relaxation centre in Hougang area is fully operational now and is located near Lorong Ah Soo wet market and hawker Centre. The address is Block 124, Hougang Avenue 1 #01-1450 and not too far from the Kovan MRT. There will be a space allocated for wellness therapy in terms of meditation programmes, talks and lectures. The room can accommodate about 15 people - just nice and cosy. Please look into relevant section to find out the bus numbers going there. All are welcome.
