FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER THERAPY?
Unfortunately, the National Health Insurance System (保険証) cannot be used to cover counseling services.
HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE?
This is a difficult question to answer, as every person is unique, as are the difficulties they are encountering. Usually at the end of the first session, a reasonable time frame can be discussed. However, you are free to terminate counseling whenever you feel ready.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
Although there is a booking system in place, it is recommended that you first reach out through email. It is possible that the issues you are experiencing may not be suited for the counseling services that are available at Japan Counseling. If this is the case, you will always be directed to professionals who may be able to better assist you.
WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD THERAPY?
Everyone has the right to mental health services. Japan Counseling works on a sliding scale, so contact us to see if a suitable arrangement can be made. If not, there may be some free services available, depending on your location, and we will certainly try to help you find them.
