  • 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.
  • 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.

Medical science is more fuzzy than Drs will admit. Not because they are lying, but mainly because they weren't taught and don't see the fuzzy nuances in the real science or the mechanisms how that specialty makes money by certain narratives that become unquestionable truth.

“I can’t stand failure so I don’t try” is common in depression. These persons need to see that depression causes low self-esteem which causes the fear of failure. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

Persons often ask what therapy, meds, doses etc., they may need. Understandable, but there is only general info. Patients need to understand there is no data about THEM until we get it from trial and error of treatments. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

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?

Are humans’ thought processes malleable by authority? Not everyone, but persons fearful of removing their masks in an empty park or on a deserted street may be an example. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

Euphoria & racing thoughts, classic symptoms of (hypo)mania, just a side-effect of antidepressants, or just good things going on? Some patients can stay well like this, but keep an eye out for change to serious mania. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

You have a 1 yr-old child, your wife is difficult, and you want to leave for a new girlfriend. It’s unclear what you should do but it is clear you’ve been making decisions without thinking about the complications. Us: https://t.co/VOm63Hc41r, https://t.co/uaoP3ZvxU7

Say you are near 60 and don’t like your job but it’s stable, well paid, and guaranteed until 70. Very risky at 60 to change jobs unless you are financially stable for life and can take the huge risk that your new job may only last a few years.

Career confusion? Search for your terms, like “graphic designer Tokyo” on a job site. What skills do they want: language, software, that you need to already have mastered. Then you’ll see the hurdles you need to clear and the path you need to take realistically.

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
