The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center is a counseling and psychology mental health service in Tokyo that provides caring and compassionate professional English speaking psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology-Integrated Psychotherapy by American therapists native to and professionally trained in the United States. The Center has provided counselling and psychological care in Tokyo for the international community, as well as counseling in Japanese for the local Japanese community since opening in 1992, and in New York City for many years before relocating to Tokyo. The therapists at the Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center are experienced in individual counseling for children, adolescents, and adults, marriage and couples counseling (particularly inter-cultural counseling for Japanese-Western couples), family counseling, divorce counseling, life counseling, career counseling and coaching, and group psychotherapy. Corporate training and conflict resolution is also available, please inquire for details. Phone or Skype distance counseling is often conducted for persons living in Kansai (Kobe, Osaka, and Kyoto) and other areas of Japan that are far from our location in Tokyo.

Some of the more common problems that the therapists at the Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center have experience treating include self-confidence problems, relationship/family problems, depression and manic depression, anxiety (GAD) and panic disorder, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) phobias, social anxiety disorder (SAD), alcohol and substance abuse, ADD and ADHD treatment, traumatic experiences (PTSD)/child abuse, feelings of unreality, sleep disturbances, psychosomatic (mind/body) disorders, women’s issues, gay, lesbian and transgender issues, sex addiction, and child and adolescent disturbances. The Tokyo Meguro Counseling Center therapists have considerable experience in the treatment of anxiety and depression in Tokyo. See an article on Depession in the Tokyo Families Magazine.

Clients who entrust the Meguro Counseling Center with their counseling needs are treated kindly and professionally, and the work at hand in the care of these persons and their issues is taken extremely seriously.

Is divorce stressful? Usually yes. It’s a break of contract, feeling, hope, and failed relationships, lawyers usually make these worse. If we could just coach people to be reasonable. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

What kinds of patients “Bargain?” Usually persons who drink too much. Why? They don’t want to give up the good feeling they get from drinking even if it is ruining their lives. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Some persons with a temper may improve just by the act of making appointments and/or getting prescriptions even if the meds don’t really do anything. It’s the power of being reminded to stay calm. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Can you talk yourself out of trauma? Maybe, maybe not. You can try to use it to your advantage to learn what not to, but it is very hard to prove trauma is connected to a specific psychiatric illness later in life. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Look carefully at what is required for the career path you want to go down. If the environment is tough are you tough enough? If the field requires obsessive detail are you detailed enough? If the job requires patient compassion are you patient & compassionate enough?

Inattentive persons can “zone-out” into video games, books, science, and even flirting on-line. It’s the flirting that often causes marital conflict and visit for couples counseling when the spouse finds out. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

“Never miss a chance to shut-up!”. A motto that can lead to lots of trouble at work or in one’s personal life. Sometimes it’s better to clamor, sometimes not. A targeted strategy is the best. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G
