Korean Therapist in Thailand

Korean Therapist in Thailand

Finding an experienced bilingual Korean therapist in Thailand can be very difficult. In fact, we were unable to find any native Korean speaking therapists in either Chiang Mai and Bangkok. Following several requests and in order to try and provide therapy services where needed we are very pleased to have Rira as part of our online counselling team. 

Benefits of Working with a native Korean Therapist in Thailand

Living in a foreign country can be daunting for many individuals, especially following the recent a global pandemic and it is completely natural to want to communicate your daily concerns and uncertainties with someone who can understand you and whom you can trust.

Our decision to expand our counselling services for clients looking for a Korean speaking therapist in Thailand stems from several enquiries via our website and local international schools. 

Although there is a Korean Embassy in Bangkok and consular service in Chiang Mai as a resource for local support, this does not include counselling or therapy services. In order to help support native Korean individuals, families and children living in Thailand we offer a free initial 15 minute video call consultation with Rira before making any financial commitment. 

We deeply understand the importance of being able to be transparent and open with someone who you can trust entirely and not hesitate when speaking to. Below are some other reasons why clients may seek a Korean speaking counsellor or therapist in Thailand.

Interracial couples therapy: One partner may be English speaking while the other may be able to communicate better in their native Korean language.

Lack of friends and social connections: They may be lacking relevant social connections and relationships due to cultural differences and language barriers.

Language barriers: It can often be hard to communicate in a language you are not familiar with and often make you feel frustrated.

Cultural differences: It may be harder to communicate your issues to a therapist you feel is unable to relate to you and your culture.

Lacking a sense of community: It may be harder to make and maintain friends when you are unable to communicate effectively in the local dialect. Therefore oftentimes, ex-pats may feel very alone.

They may feel homesick: Clients may feel homesick and attending therapy in their mother tongue can be extremely advantageous.

Loneliness: They simply feel lonely without having formed relationships and social connections, therefore need to speak with someone who will understand them entirely and with whom they are able to be themselves entirely.

Benefits of Online Therapy for Korean Speaking Clients in Thailand

Historically, in order to attend traditional therapy and counselling sessions, it was necessary for clients and therapists to be present together in a physical setting, communicating face to face. While traditional therapy is still prevalent, online therapy has been gaining immense traction and, slowly but surely becoming a modern alternative to traditional therapy.

With the digital age being on the rise and with the help of online therapy, clients are now able to carry out their therapy sessions without leaving the comfort of their own homes and all they really require is a reliable internet connection.

Let us have a look at some advantages for online counselling in Thailand

  • Convenience and affordability
  • Increased access to suitable therapists globally
  • Clients feel more autonomous
  • Confidentiality
  • More consistent counselling

Child, Teen & Adolescent Counselling in Korean Language

Since the current pandemic children are becoming more accustomed to online learning which has been helpful for counselling sessions also. There are many Korean students studying at the bilingual and international schools in Chiang Mai and Bangkok and although many of the schools have dedicated school counsellors very few if any are able to offer counselling services in Korean language.

Some of reasons why children of any nationality may seek counselling are as follows

  •  Lack of community / social connection
  • Language barriers
  • Change (relocating to new city / country / feeling homesick
  • Bullying
