"Troubles of socializing in the neighborhood" | Female, Homemaker, 30s
I sought counseling because I was worried about having relationship my neighbors. Due to my shyness, I couldn't get into the circle of moms and children in my neighborhood. After awhile I found myself could not even get out of the house because of this. In counseling, I learned about anxiety and how to manage my emotions. I had personal space to reflect about myself and why I was the way I was. After receiving counseling, I feel this issue has gradually became smaller. I am now able to relate better with my neighbors. Also, I have learned how to think positively about various things. I feel that my heart, which used to be trapped in some kind of anxiety and fear, has been released and freed now. I am really glad that I received counseling.
We're grateful of these affirming voices of our clients!

Before receiving counseling, I was afraid to find out where my fear and anger came from. I was always told that they came from "love" . But ... It felt very strange! Counseling is internal process. Initially, I thought it was scary to look what is inside of me. But, I'm really glad that through a gentle process, I was able to sort out my heart that I couldn't do it by myself. It's difficult to convey "love" to parents and children, friends, lovers, and neighbors, without knowing yourself first.

"Son of the rebellious period" | Couple, 50s, Kakogawa
We have a son who is in the 3rd grade and 1st year of junior high school. When asked, my eldest son would only respond with "nothing". My second son would hit a door or a wall when upset. When he comes back home late, he would not even say "hello". I grew up with sisters, and had no recollection of being rebellious during my puberty. So I didn't know how to deal with this. I became worried every day. I consulted here and learned how to deal with them and how to communicate more effectively as a parent. After a few months, my son started to open up a little. He no longer hit doors or walls like he used to. I am grateful!
