Felicia Nainggolan (M.psi, Psikolog)

Psychotherapist—Adult Individual & Couples Counseling / Children and/or Families

Felicia is a Clinical Psychologist who speaks English, Bahasa Indonesian, and Malay.

Her therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). When she worked in Indonesia, some of her clients were Indonesians who were living abroad. She found that psychological problems can be triggered or can be worsened for people who are living abroad, especially when unable to consult about their problems using their native language or find a professional helper who shares the same cultural background. With her personal understanding and experience as an expat, she is motivated to help people who speak Bahasa Indonesian and Malay in Japan through counseling.

She works with and supports adolescents and adults with a wide range of psychological problems, including emotional problems (anxiety, anger, or depression), stress, personality disorder, problems at work, career, relationship problems, and family problems. She is specifically interested in anger management, career coaching, and cultural adjustment issues.

Felicia is a Clinical Psychologist who received her bachelor’s degree from Padjadjaran University, and her master’s degree in adult clinical psychology and her license as a Clinical Psychologist from the University of Indonesia.

Outside of therapy, she likes trying new restaurants, drinking coffee, spending quality time with loved ones, watching movies, reading a good book, and cooking.

o Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): a type of psychotherapy (talk therapy) that has a solution-oriented approach and aims to help process patient struggles from both a cognitive and behavioral perspective. The goal of CBT is to address negative thoughts (cognitive) or behaviors (behavioral) that are causing distress and focus on encouraging practical steps toward solving the problem at hand while tackling the anxiety that it may be causing. The basis of CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and feelings are what influence behaviors.

o Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): a type of therapy focused on actively rejecting the denial of internal thoughts and feelings, and recognizing them as reactions to situations one has experienced. This allows the individual to process such thoughts and feelings, and work to move past these obstacles blocking them from healing.

Felicia merupakan Psikolog Klinis dengan kemampuan berbahasa Inggris, bahasa Indonesia dan Melayu.

Pendekatan yang biasa digunakan dalam membantu klien adalah Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) dan Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Terutama ketika mereka tidak bisa menceritakan masalahnya menggunakan bahasa utama yaitu bahasa Indonesia, atau tidak bisa berdiskusi dengan seseorang yang memiliki latar belakang budaya yang sama.
