NO way you will be allowed to practise in private sector since you are foreign trained and you will never be fully registered.
You can earn 300-500K a year in Singapore if you rob the bank. You can expect about 100-200K before tax as a specialist as psy.
By the way - Are you able to speak fluently in Teochew/Hokkian/Mandarin/Malay, forgo your hope otherwise.
