Commencing her professional journey, she dedicated herself to serving children and adults with special needs, subsequently extending her practice into the community, where she provided therapeutic support to children, adolescents, and families.

Wan Xin endeavours to cultivate an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation during sessions, particularly for young clients, employing play-based techniques to foster ease and engagement while addressing their concerns.
