Treatment Received: Psychotherapist Consultation
I was very pleased with the service and paid, as advertised, 2000 baht for a couples assessment session. Following the initial consultation, my wife and I have signed up to 6 sessions. We have already noticed an improvement in our communication and renewed energy for staying together and working out the difficulties.

Through the research I did, I realized that services like Bangkok Counselling Service didn’t exist. I didn’t consider setting one up until a rainy afternoon six months later in London. Little did I know at the time, just how much work setting up a business in Thailand would be, every thing worked out and BCS was successfully established and was the first counselling and psychotherapy practice in Thailand registered with the department of Labor.
