Questions & Answers
Q: What kind of counseling method do you use?
We can offer several counseling methods, however, we mainly use these methods below:
Q: Is there any other ways other than face-to face counselling?
We basically offer a face-to-face counseling, however, we may offer Phone and Skype counseling depending on your situation. Even in that case, we only offer the first consultation as a face-to-face.
Q: What do we do at the first session?
At the first consultation, we will explain our counseling methods and counseling systems (room, fee, etc.). We would like you to feel our counseling atmosphere and compatibility with your counselor, so that you can consider if you take our counseling.
Q: I'm wondering if I can talk well with my counselor. What should I tell you?
We think it is the most important that you can feel safe at our center. We understand it is hard to tell about your trauma or face to it, so you don't need to tell us your trauma at the first session. With our counseling, you can gradually face to your trauma.
Q: What is Trauma?
When your sense of safety is destroyed, your heart/brain will be threaten and
automatically switched to "Instinct Surviving Mode." Usually we can release the mode after your stress or dangerous situation pass away, but the surviving mode doesn't be released when the stress is beyond your coping ability. You might unconsciously continue to prevent future dangers all the time, then you will be exhausted. We call this situation or process as TRAUMA.
Trauma can be caused by various factors: Disaster, War, Sexual assault, Domestic Violence, Traffic accident, Disease, Therapeutic experience, Loss or Heartbreak
(Included but not limited). Even you don't face to danger for your own life, when you
feel/see someone faces to a danger, you may also get trauma.
It is NOT necessary to compare your trauma or recovery process from trauma with others. Everyone has a different coping ability and people react differently to the some incident. In the same way, everyone has their own recovery process. We would like to support you to find your own solutions at your own pace.
