I am trying to gain a better understanding of the need for counseling services in the Southern Korea area (particularly Busan, but please reply if you live in other areas as well). I have become aware of an increased interest in counseling services by non-native residents and am looking into how this need can be met.
My definition of counseling services include the following: culture shock/adjustment counseling, depression counseling, grief counseling, couples counseling, relationship counseling, etc. It does not include intense psychotherapy or medication to control symptoms.
If you are comfortable, would you mind sharing your experience?
Do you have any information about counselors in the area?
If you were to attend counseling, what kind of services would you prefer (individual, support group, phone, internet, free, paid, etc)
How do you perceive the need for counseling services in Busan?
