English Speaking Counseling Service for English Teahers In Japan

The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center

English teachers often find themselves in Japan without the ability to communicate to the vast majority of society, services, and professionals. Many English teachers have mental-health and counseling needs from before arriving to Japan, and the stresses of moving to a foreign country may cause or exacerbate these problems. Unfortunately, there are few English speaking counseling centers in many areas of Japan resulting in a difficulty for many of these professionals to find a helping hand in time of need. JET teachers, ALTs, and other private or public school teachers often find themselves isolated in a rural part of Japan.

An English speaking psychology and counseling service located 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 care for Japan-wide English teachers in need of counseling services. The Meguro Counseling Center has many years of experience helping JET and other ALT teachers, understands the issues related to these kinds of jobs, and can provide effective Phone or Skype counseling for teachers who live in rural areas of Japan.

The native English speaking American 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 or Japanese. The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center therapists have considerable experience in the treatment of anxiety and depression.

All clinical information about teachers who receive counseling at the Meguro Counseling Center is kept strictly confidential from one's employers or emplyoment organizations (i.e., JET/CLAIR administrations).

Please feel free to contact the Center if you or someone close to you is in need of help.
