Solace Asia

Due to limited mental health professionals in the country, oftentimes Malaysians challenged by mental health issues are confused over where to seek help. Meeting a therapist becomes even harder for those living in the interiors, as they would often have to travel long distances to receive the support they need.

In an effort to provide mental health services to as many as possible and come to the rescue to those unable to find support, Solace Asia, Malaysia’s first private addiction rehabilitation center headed by Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam, has put together a team of mental health professionals offering online counseling and psychotherapy under the brand name of Solace Wellness.

Officially the first online therapy platform in the country, Solace Wellness proudly dedicate itself to provide the best in class treatment for a wide range of mental health illnesses, through different treatment modalities.

With a free mental health assessment available on the website, clients will have the opportunity to be connected with a therapist and embark on a recovery journey towards a full and productive life, all from the comfort of their homes!

Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, ADHD, OCD, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, emotional abuse, grief and loss, addiction are all treatable mental conditions that the clinical team at Solace Wellness is able to provide support for.

Solace Wellness is pioneering what have already become a popular model in western countries due to its better affordability; scientific studies have shown that online and virtual therapy can be as effective as conventional therapy and we look forward to be of service” says founder Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam when asked about the new online services.  

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Solace Wellness offers anyone the opportunity and freedom to schedule a therapy session at their preferred time and date, delivered to them as they continue to enjoy their home couch, added Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam.
