English Speaking Counseling Service In Tokyo Japan

English counseling in Tokyo: The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center

It can be a daunting experience for many expatriates to find themselves in Japan without the ability to communicate to the vast majority of society, services, and professionals. Many expatriates have mental-health and counseling needs from before arriving to Japan, and the stresses of moving to a foreign country may cause or exacerbate a call for help. Unfortunately there are few English speaking counseling centers in Tokyo and Japan resulting in a large gap in the provision of care of these persons. The Meguro Counseling Center is a group of International Mental Health Professionals in Japan, and an English speaking psychology counseling service in Tokyo Japan. The Meguro Counseling Center has published professional papers on the topic of expatriate mental-health needs in Japan, and strives to provide a helping-hand for the English-speaking community in need of counseling services in the Tokyo area. Phone or Skype counseling is also available for those who live at a distance from Tokyo.

The native English speaking therapists at the Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center are a multi-disciplinary group of professionals who provide individual psychology counseling for children or adults, marriage and couples counseling, family counseling, divorce counseling, and group psychotherapy services in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese. The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center therapists have considerable experience in the treatment of anxiety and depression in Tokyo.

Counseling in English is provided for the general expatriate community including international school counseling: American School, British School, Tokyo and Yokohama International Schools, U.S. State Department, U.S. Embassy, and U.S. military base and D.O.D. counseling: Yokota, Yokosuka, Atsugi, Zama, Misawa, Kadena, Futenma, Sasebo, Iwakuni, Okinawa.
