in practice since 2003
The profound richness and intricacy of the interactions between the child and her/his caregiver has always been of great interest to me. After practicing more than 18 years in the counselling field, working with children, adolescents and adults, I have come to appreciate the importance of these interactions as well as their impact on our adult life. I am licensed to work independently as a Clinical Psychologist in Japan, and I am registered as a psychological counsellor in Geneva. I am a certified MBT-C (Mentalization Based Treatment for Children) practitioner and supervisor registered by Anna Freud Centre in UK.
My educational background PhD candidate at Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at University College London since 2021. Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Perinatal and Early Childhood from University of Geneva and Lausanne completed in 2018. Master of Arts in Counselling from Webster University com in 2003.
My experience includes extensive work with school age children and their parents as a school psychologist as well as with adolescents and adults as a residential psychotherapist at university hospital and counselling centres. I provide my services in English and Japanese, and my international relocation experience motivates me to pay particular attention and appreciation to the cultural values and customs of each individual according to her/his background and heritage.
