Edmund is one of the few Asians accredited with a Fellow in Thanatology by the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC), USA.
Both Edmund and his present wife Pauline have experienced first-hand the deep pain and loneliness of suddenly losing their respective spouses. Edmund’s first wife, Jessie, died unexpectedly of intra-cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 49. Pauline’s first husband, Su, was killed instantly in a car accident, and she was widowed for 15 years. Edmund has two children while Pauline has a child from their first marriages.
As a couple, Edmund and Pauline have since 2007 counseled and journeyed alongside hundreds of bereaved persons, both on a one-on-one basis and collectively in Grief Support Groups. They have also trained up a volunteer core team of caregivers who have themselves journeyed through their own losses.
Edmund has been invited to speak in conferences and seminars both locally and abroad. He has taught in various universities and given training on grief support and counseling to parties such as the Befrienders, caregivers of the MH370 victims, WiCare Singapore, grief recovery and resilience building workers of the Philippines Yolanda disaster survivors, and specialist doctors in hospitals.
