At this center, staff with abundant clinical experience perform the following therapies.
Each method has a long way to go on a yearly basis, but we try to make it enjoyable so that we can continue.
Mental health consultation
At our center, we provide therapies based on scientific evidence (evidence) for children's mental problems. We will combine the methods that suit each child and propose the most effective method for them.
Cognitive behavioral therapy
This is currently the most effective method for treating children's anxiety and depression. While understanding the connections between your feelings, thoughts, and actions, we will work together to think about ways to get along well. Unlike drug-based treatments, it is important to think about preventive measures that you can take on your own when the next instability occurs, not only during the therapy but also after the therapy is over. The feature is that it can be done.
Dialectical behavior therapy
This method is currently most effective for children who are particularly frustrated and have an outburst of emotional instability, children who are prone to emotional instability due to relationships, and children who hurt themselves. We will think about how to deal with instability, how to observe one's mind, and how to build stable relationships.
This is the second most effective method for child trauma after cognitive-behavioral therapy (trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy).
It's a unique way to move your eyes and tap, but it's less traumatic.
It is also an effective method for improving child attachment and parent-child relationships. I will think so that I can exchange the feelings of the other person and my feelings well. At our center, we will incorporate it into conversations and play therapy in basic consultation.
This method is effective for depression of children over adolescence and problems with eating.
It is a method that leads to improvement of psychological instability by thinking about the current relationship with the person who is most important to you.
Parent training has been shown to be more effective than therapy for children against child frustration and rebellion, especially in the childhood to elementary school age. The program is usually conducted in groups, but at our center, we handle parents individually.
Rehabilitation is a therapy that promotes the development of children with uneven development.
At our center, we provide small-group care for up to 3 people, focusing on individual care.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
ABA is the most effective treatment method for autism spectrum disorders.
While playing with the therapist, we will promote the development of language and sociality.
In particular, for young children, we also have a plan that allows you to receive 10 hours of medical care per week, which is close to the most scientifically effective 15 hours per week, which is difficult to receive even in Japan.
In addition, parents can also participate so that they can practice nursing at home.
Social skills training
Social Skills Training (SST) is a way to improve your child's communication and interpersonal skills. While accepting the feelings of the other person, you can engage in conversations and actions that convey your thoughts, and think about how you can interact with people by devising ways to grasp the facial expressions and situations of people that cannot be conveyed in words. We will train together while creating various situations.
You can watch the recording of the lecture about the points of rehabilitation and SST.
There are many important points for medical treatment, so please have a look.

We will assess the characteristics of the brain and support learning with the most effective learning method according to the type of the child's brain. You can also share the content with your school teachers (see the Psychological Test section for more information on the assessment).
Difficulty in reading and writing Japanese and English
Studies have shown that for children who are good at talking but are not good at reading and writing characters, reading and writing kanji, writing and diary, just doing a drill does not improve the learning effect. We will propose effective learning methods according to your child's brain type, work on homework and tasks together, and we will work on tasks according to your child's brain type.
The characteristics of the brain are related to the weaknesses of math, such as using fingers forever to calculate, being able to calculate but not good at word problems, not being able to calculate by hand, and not being good at figures. We perform assessments to enhance the learning effect of children who are not good at math and learning support according to the type of brain.

We perform various psychological tests in Japanese. The types of tests that can be performed will be updated from time to time.
Those who apply for EHCP for children with disabilities in the UK can submit the results as reference documents because Japanese psychological tests are difficult in the UK.
This is an inspection that requires parents or the person to answer the questionnaire. Many are called screening tests, which can roughly determine whether or not your child's condition should be dealt with now.
This is an inspection in which the inspector asks a question and answers to the guardian or the person himself / herself (only Connors 3 is a questionnaire type). It takes 1-2 hours. It is also possible online. This type of test can provide some insight in some areas, but accurate assessments can be difficult.
This is a face-to-face test that includes developmental tests, intelligence tests, and learning assessments. It will take 2-3 hours. This is the most detailed way to check your child's condition.
