A New Beginning: Bridging Cultures Through Psychotherapy in Shimane Prefecture and Beyond

Welcome to Heartful Psychotherapy’s blog! We are excited to share the journey of our new venture in Shimane, Japan, and why it marks a significant milestone for our community and beyond.

The First of Its Kind in Shimane Prefecture

In a region known for its rich cultural heritage and diversity, we are thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking service. Heartful Psychotherapy is set to become the first practice in Shimane to offer specialized therapy sessions tailored for English and Tagalog speakers.

While our beautiful prefecture has always been welcoming to people from different corners of the world, the availability of mental health services in languages other than Japanese has been limited. We recognized the need for a bridge between cultures, a place where individuals and families, both local and expatriates, can find solace and support.

Serving All of Japan

Beyond Shimane Prefecture, Heartful Psychotherapy is dedicated to serving individuals and families across Japan. We understand that the challenges of living in a foreign country are not unique to any one region. Our mission is to empower individuals from diverse backgrounds throughout Japan to achieve mental and emotional well-being.

Our approach is grounded in empathy, respect, and a deep understanding of the cultural nuances that come with living in Japan. We believe that effective therapy transcends language barriers, which is why we offer sessions in English, Tagalog, and Japanese.

A Unique Perspective

Our lead therapist, Alexander Kierulf, brings a unique perspective to Heartful Psychotherapy. Having lived in Japan for seven years and being married to a Japanese national, Alexander has developed a deep understanding of Japanese culture and language. He knows firsthand the challenges faced by foreigners and has a profound respect for cultural differences. This unique perspective makes him a bridge between cultures and a guide to those seeking support throughout Japan.

Your Supportive Partner

We are committed to your emotional well-being and personal growth. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for individuals throughout Japan, where they can embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. With Alexander as your dedicated therapist, you can trust in Heartful Psychotherapy’s unwavering commitment to your emotional wellness and personal growth.

We are excited to embark on this journey with you, and we look forward to being a part of your path to a happier and healthier life.

Stay tuned for more updates on our progress and exciting developments! Thank you for joining us in this new beginning.
