TELL Japan

Distance Counseling

We know how hard it can be to find a therapist outside major cities in Japan.

For adults who cannot come to the TELL Counseling offices in Tokyo or Yokohama because of distance or physical disability or who cannot find face-to-face services in their area, TELL Counseling offers distance counseling, which can be done by video services such as Skype.

This service is offered for clients who are affected by problems such as:

  • depression and other mood disorders
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • cultural adjustment issues
  • personal growth (making difficult decisions)
  • family-related problems
  • workplace related problems
  • problems in relationships

However, distance counseling is not recommended for those taking psychotropic medication or in need of psychiatric assessment, as the therapists cannot monitor medications or work with local doctors. Due to the limitations in interaction, we do not offer the service for couples, families or children.

To determine whether or not distance counseling would be the best method of therapy for you, please email us at for more information.

All clinicians working at TELL Counseling are governed by the ethical and professional guidelines regarding confidentiality applicable to their professional membership (e.g. American Psychological Association, National Association of Social Workers).
