Assessment Interview
An interview will be arranged for applicants to find out whether or not psychoanalysis will benefit you. Certified psychoanalysts will conduct the interviews.

When it is found that psychoanalysis will be useful, a member specialist will be recommended to you, after taking various conditions into consideration.

•Assessment interviews: 10,000yen/session (about 50 minutes)
•Therapy sessions (standard): Certified psychoanalysts: 6,000yen to 20,000yen/session (45 or 50 minutes)
Candidates for psychoanalysts: 3,000yen or higher/session (45 or 50 minutes)

: The difference in rates reflects the local economy and is mainly due to the experience and proficiency of the individual that takes on the sessions. Our Psychoanalytic Center is not a medical institution but a consultation agency for psychoanalysis, and health insurances will not cover the services provided.
