Skype counseling is primarily used for those clients not within traveling distance, or while away from Tokyo on a temporary basis.

Through the use of Skype, OCC offers professional, convenient, and quality counseling services that work for you. Similar in nature to Telephone Counseling , you no longer need to find time to travel to a counseling appointment, or take the chance of having to put off a session because life has gotten in the way. In contrast to Telephone Counseling, Skype allows both the counselor and client a Face-to-Face counseling opportunity even from a distance.   

Similar to  Telephone Counseling, the primary advantag is that you can counsel with someone that is simply not available in your area. Some communities have no trained counselors, and even in large metropolitan areas, it is sometimes difficult to find someone trained in a particular method that you trust. 

The convenience of using Skype, is also a tremendous advantages. Getting to and from a counseling office can sometimes take hours, which means the client might not be able to receive the support they need. Skype counseling, on the other hand, is something that can be fit in more easily to busy schedule and does not require anything more than an Internet connection with a camera and a private place to talk.

How does Skype Counseling Work?

Your first counseling session will be an intake session that will be 75 minutes long.  The fee for this your intake session will be ¥24,000.  In that session, I’ll get to know you and the current problems you are facing. After our first  consultation you will be asked to fill out and submit specific client forms.  These forms should be returned prior to our second session. Continuing counseling will be charged at ¥16,000 per 50 minute session. Future appointments can be set up on a regular weekly or bi-weekly basis or can be scheduled at the end of the previous session. All fees should be paid in advance.
