Common Topics of Inquiry:

  • Medications in Japan: The Center can not provide specific information in an e-mail on what type of medical care is available in Japan, or how to procure medications that are not available in Japan, out of context to your needs. All persons need to be interviewed in a session in order to recommend an appropriate plan of care after these needs are carefully assessed. These interviews may be conducted by phone or Skype for persons coming from overseas or located outside the Tokyo area. Note that few of the medications used for ADD/ADHD overseas are available in Japan, and some are illegal to have or bring into Japan. The Meguro Counseling Center can discuss the options available for ADD/ADHD treatment in Japan in a scheduled session.
  • Information Requests: Many persons request information for an article, class project, documentary, pharmaceutical marketing, career advice, how to become a counselor, etc. Please note that provision of such information would be a professional service, the exact fees of which would be determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • Hiring Plans & Internships: The Meguro Counseling Center does not currently have an internship program, new hiring plan, or a program for observation/volunteers.
  • How to work as a Psychologist/Counselor in Japan: Click here for inquiries regarding how to work as a clinical psychologist in Japan.
  • Referral Requests: The Meguro Counseling Center can effectively provide Skype or Phone counseling for persons living far from the Tokyo area, but does not have a referral service function for face-to-face counseling in various locations.
  • Inquiries from third parties: We are happy to see persons referred through employers, insurance companies, EAPs, etc., however, the person in question needs send us a mail from our website.
