About Me

Hello! I am Johnben Loy, USA-Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Malaysia.

Over the years, I have received a broad range of education: music (BFA), psychology (BA), business (MBA), theology (MTS), and family social science (PhD).

Here, I write about the varied topics that interest me with an aim to help us deepen our understanding of ourselves and to develop healthier marital and family relationships.

If you like what you read, feel free to leave me a comment.

Below is a podcast of an interview I did on BFM 89.9 (March 2011) with Richard Bradbury in which I described what I do as a marriage and family therapist in Malaysia.

More recently (November 2016), I did an interview explaining the difference between my work as a therapist and an executive life coach. The podcast on the topic starts at 2:55 (after a short discussion about the US elections).


Want to see what I’m up to more regularly?  You can find me on Facebook or Twitter. Please note that I will not add someone I have not met in person as a Facebook friend. But feel free to follow me to read my public posts.

Please note: I do not offer coaching/therapy through this website. I work with clients at Rekindle Centre for Systemic Therapy in Kuala Lumpur. If you would like to engage my professional services, please contact my office.

  1. Dr Loy, may I have your email add. I am 1 of the participant in the ucsi counseling conference in your workshop. I am interested to learn more on marital counseling

    1. That’s not a fair comparison Sivin. When you’ve finished with your doctorate, then let’s compare. I’m sure you’ll be much more prolific than I then!

  2. Hi Johnben – was thinking of you so I did a google search and found your blog. Interestingly I just decided to get back into blogging (takes awhile after the PhD journey, doesn’t it? I am in my 4th year fullltime at Hamline School of Business – so far it’s been a GREAT journey and I feel blessed – never a dull moment! Hope you and your family are well in Malaysia!
