BONDS means "to connect." BONDS provides a place where psychologists with professional skills and up-to-date knowledge can connect with people who are seeking professional support. We also seek to explore and expand the possibilities of connecting with each other as individuals with individuality, value, and importance, across cultures, minorities and majorities, gender, disability status, and other classifications.
BONDS inherits the spirit of Tokyo Counseling Services created by Mr. Andrew Grimes and Ms. Junko Kimura, who met Dr. Noboru Hozumi, a psychiatrist who provided psychological support that emphasized the value of each individual, and who continued to train as psychologists helping each person live as the hero in his or her own life.
At BONDS, we value "diversity". We value the diversity of our encounters.
We respect the individual histories and cultures in which they have lived, and provide counseling in Japanese, Korean, English, German, and other languages, with a variety of approaches such as psychoanalysis, person-centered approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, interaction analysis, and integrative psychotherapy. We also provide professional services such as EAP, supervision and consultation.
Appointments on weekends, holidays, and later evenings are available as well as on weekdays. In-person and Online counseling are also available.
Prevention measures for coronavirus infections
Alcohol disinfectant is installed at the entrance of BONDS, in each room, and in the washroom. We thoroughly try to ventilate the rooms, set up an acrylic board in each room, disinfect our hands, and wear a mask. In the online service, we are trying to respond without wearing a mask so that our facial expressions can be seen.
